Enchanted Fairy Yarnworks
Last night I went back to Canyon Creek to work on a baby blanket. It is a lovely baby blanket made in gray Bernat Blanket yarn. So many people are doing more neutral colors in nurseries and this turned out really beautiful. (If I do say so myself...) I realized that I goofed on the beer I tasted the week before. There are 2 porters there at Canyon Creek. I did have a sip of the Jack the Ripper version a couple of weeks ago, but last week I had the RIP Porter. I gotta tell you both are very very very good. I do want to try a full glass of the Jack the Ripper one though. I may go back tonight to rectify this error. (that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! HA!!)
So last night I learned about Growlers and Grunts. With it so close to Halloween, I realize that could be a discussion of zombies..but it isn't. (I'm HILARIOUS!...and FYI no I'm not currently enjoying a beer...or any adult beverage...) Growlers are 64oz jugs and Grunts are 32oz jugs. The server broke that down for me by pints/glasses.. 4 glasses in a Growler and 2 in a Grunt. Obviously, I bought the Growler (duh)... I decided to have it filled with something different so I got the Cold Creek Scottish that has a 22 IBU and 5.9% ABV. It has a nice smokey taste. I wanted pizza for dinner and it was perfect with the pizza. A Papa Murphy's take and bake Cowboy pizza (peperoni, sausage, mushrooms, olives, onions...YUM). I was a happy camper knitting at home last night!
In Virginia folks take the kids to vineyards with them for an afternoon outside while the adults get to enjoy a glass of wine. Here in Montana, they go to the brewery. Dressed up in their costumes and enjoying their day! I love watching the kids at Halloween. Adults were dressed up as well. Halloween isn't just for the kids! So I think I'm going to go run a few quick errands and then go have one of the Jack the Ripper brews because just like Halloween, that seasonal beer won't be here long.
