Afternoon Brew

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

We're on the verge of Spring here and have had some beautiful days already!! They make for some mild, breezy, and bright afternoons, perfect for brewing. Dan has been homebrewing for almost 5 years now, and makes some award-winning beer, for real. The other afternoon was perfect for brewin' up a batch while the kids had fun getting some fresh air too.

Homegirl loves to hold on to stuff--a piece of paper, Kleenex, plastic bag; whatever she can wad up and squeeze or grip in her little hand, she'll just carry around for as long as she likes (don't dare try and take it from her grip either). This particular afternoon, sidewalk chalk made its way into her little palm and she held on for quite a while as she got up and down the step, checked on her bro, and peeked in on the brewing process.
Tyson likes to eat the grains from the mash and mess around with whatever he can get his hands on (and dress like a little hipster-hobo, apparently). No one is safe once the hose and sprayer come out..
This particular afternoon, Dan brewed an imperial stout.
A hoarder of things she can hold and a little hoodlum - they keep us on our toes, hence the homebrew!!

  1. If we had more room to store all the supplies, I'm sure Seth would be all about home brewing as well. It sounds like a good one, hope it turned out well! And LOVE that you're getting some spring-like days already and you guys can spend some time outside!

  3. So cool that he brews! We've always found that interesting. Great pictures of your sweet little ones. I love that she holds on to things like that. Does she sleep with something? Like a blanket or stuffed animal? Mason was attached to one particular blanket for years!

  4. This is so awesome!! Drew would love to do that. Homegirl and my Emmy would be besties! They are so much alike. I love that no one is safe once the sprayer comes out. My kind of kid!

  5. What a fun little family activity! We are still loving our kegerator by the way. In between batches of cider, we have been putting ginger beer on tap; it's been so fun! Conor would love to brew some beer, but since I don't drink it... It doesn't seem worth it. Maybe he will when I get pregnant next time.

  6. I wish we had space for home brewing! The process sounds awesome, and I'm sure the beer it top notch.
    Also. Oh my gosh, the chalk holding. Dying. So cute.
