Listen while you read: Ray LaMontagne - You Are the Best Thing
It's been awhile since my last post. I have been a bit busy lately with weekends trips and senior design deadlines looming, I promise to get back to posting with my every improving and insightful posts.
However, I did want to share with you an awesome experience I had this weekend. While visiting some family up in Northwest Indiana, a couple friends and I took a trip to the 3 Floyds Brewery in Muster Indiana. For those not familiar with micro brews distributed in Indiana, 3 Floyds is most well know for their Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout that is only sold one day of the year, last Sunday in April, on Dark Lord Day. On this day thousands of beer fans pilgrimage to Munster to buy, limit of 6 bottles, what is widely considered the best beer in the world.
3 Floyds produces about 4,800 barrels of bear a year and has about 7 beers that are made all year round. They have various seasonal beers some of which you can only get at their pub attached to the brewery. My favorite is the Moloko, a milk stout much like Samuel Adams Cream Stout but so much better. It reminds me of chocolate milk.
If you talk with the employees at 3 Floyds you will certainly find out that they love the beer they make but they are huge fans of other micro breweries and often trade beers. Some are on there pub menu. I did take a tour of their brewery but honestly I don't remember enough to share, blame the beers I was drinking while on the tour, most of the setup and processes were over my head.
I had a such a great time at the pub, enjoyed a great pulled pork sandwich and a fry cone, I bought a T-shirt to share with all of you. My bounty from the visit. I love how it matches the color scheme of my blog.
Catch you all later, I will be back posting soon I promise. I think I will be live on Ustream late tonight so look for me there.
