Craft Beer

“He was a wise man who invented beer” –Plato In college, light beer ruled.  It was cheap, watery, and readily available.  As funds and travel increased, so did my appetite for craft beer.  Furthermore, as I started to lead audits the number of breweries I visited substantially increased.  To keep track of the several hundred different brews consumed, I have tried to track my tastes in Untappd—my account is Ricochet48, friend me! Here’s a quick list off the top of my head of breweries I have visited.  From tiny taste rooms to fantastic factories and even more ‘chain-like’ restaurants, I’ve experienced more than a few brews straight from the source as such:
