Looking south... by the time we reach the solstice the sun pretty much rises and sets in the south.

Taken at 1pm today...



Sometimes you have to brush the snow off the bikes too...



On the other hand... it is 37F and I am thinking of wearing shorts and sandals.

First snowshoe of the season on some fresh 10-12 inches Kind of heavy dense snow, but beggers can't be choosers! Hopefully many more to come.

First car in the unplowed lot and it's almost noon. Wow!


First tracks


My lady using my Dion 121 running snowshoes


I love jumping on and off of things

Seriously? I don't miss all that much about the states and the beer is pretty high up on the list of things I don't miss.

when I first heard that Heineken was seen as a premium beer in the U.S. I LOL'ed pretty hard.

Still, us Dutchies have to bow down to our Belgian and German friends when it comes to brewing.

Here's a nice post-ride pic with some local trappist in Belgium, sorry for the repost in this thread.

The best lager I ever had was in Zurich. But I usually prefer IPA or similar, and there are many great local breweries in the US producing good stuff. Heineken? I'll pass, thank you, meaning no disrespect to the folks who make it, of course.

this was all before the Great Craft Beer Revival, off course, which is somewhat happening now to mainstream US, at least that's what I'm lead to believe by observing stuff from ye olde continent

To put the Heineken thing in perspective: Folks pay top dollar for Budweiser in Panama. lol

If you haven't visited the US in the past 5 years, craft beer has taken over. Even gas stations have a craft beer section now.

For sure and old labels are being revived with recipes like they used 75 years (or more) ago. i.e. Falls City and Sterling.

You've been to Zurich... have you not had a Heineken on tap in Amsterdam then? It's not what you get over here in North America, it is better though it is still their "molson canadian, or budwiser or whatever is biggest in the US). I am pretty into what the craft beer industry is calling an IPA these days, but for a good pilsner or lager or Kolsch the craft brewers still cannot touch most local brewers in Germany, Poland, Czech, Austria etc... and I don't mean what you buy as an import over here, I mean over there in the town the brewery is located and on tap. Lots of of craft brewers attempt to make a Kolsch or a Bavarian Lager or European pilsner but they don't have centuries of perfected brewing under the purity law and with local grains and hops. As such they just don't measure up. The American industry is in it's infancy, some breweries will survive, some will fold or be bought by larger ones... there are good things on the horizon for the North American Craft Beer Market. It is burgeoning in the Cascadia region of Canada as well. BC is a hotbed of craft beer and Vancouver is exploding right now. Victoria has had a good craft beer culture going for many years.

That's because have some decent beers. There is one (1) that I can stomach in all of Central America, including México. And that one is Belikin Stout, from Belize. My fave, when NOB is Two Hearted Ale, of those that come in a bottle. Draft is always better. Victory Stout ain't too shabby either.

Sorry I have no Every Day Pics of beer to offer.

Alas, I have never been to Amsterdam. Maybe one day. I've had beer in Milan, it was nothing special. The ale from an inn somewhere between London and Oxford was great.

In the old days, which is to say, oh, before 1965 there were local breweries throughout the US. They were not, AFAIK, specialty breweries, but rather preferred a large share of the local "ordinary beer" market. My home town had Richbrau, for example. I doubt anyone missed it when it disappeared. The recent revival of local breweries is a throwback, but different in that now they go for specialization to distinguish themselves from the big-red/green/blue-can guys.
