DAY 1

The adventure to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO has begun. We departed from Saucony Creek Brewery in Kutztown on Friday (9/26/14) afternoon and started the trek westbound. First stop was Pittsburgh, PA to visit our friends at Mr. Smalls Funhouse. Mr. Smalls owners Liz Berlin (she also plays in a band called Rusted Root) and Jordan Speranzo and Evan Smith (badass skateboard pro for Element and DC, thanks for hooking me up with your pro deck!!). We missed you Mike Speranzo, but hope you’re enjoying some time relaxing and golfing in Florida!

Just a couple block away from Mr. Smalls Funhouse is a great little brewery and brewpub called Draai Laag. Local food truck was parked outside when we rolled in and a small casual crowd of beer knowledge folks were surrounding the bar. Very well brewed Belgian style beers, especially those that were coming from their barrel aging and souring programs.

 

DAY 2

Saturday morning I (Matt Lindenmuth) woke up early from to get the Saucony Punky BrewsTour bus on the road. Werley woke up to ride shotgun with me while the rest of the crew continued to sleep off their hangovers. The rockstar lifestyle is so difficult. Saturday morning’s drive took us from Pittsburgh through West Virginia, Ohio, and into Indiana on I-70 West. Our queen marketing and social media mastermind Lindsay set up a visit for us in her hometown of Indianapolis with Triton Brewing. We got to tour and visit their brewery and tap room, and once again experience some amazing beers. Triton’s 500 Monks soured on lactobacillus was brilliant!

From Triton we rolled down to Broad Ripple Street which is the heart of Butler University’s social scene. Triton has a taproom on Broad Ripple Street and just doors down from them is Thr3e Wise Men Brewpub. The service at Thr3e Wise Men was horrible, so I don’t recommend visiting there unless you only going to the bar for beers.

On a positive note, I got to catch up with longtime friend and mentor Mike Jacki and chat life and business over some solid beers. When you’ve lived and worked your entire life on the road alongside amazing people like Mike it means the world to capture a small moments in time like that. It makes me feel normal.

Day 3 has begun, we are on the road to St. Louis to see the Arch and pick-up are graphic artist Steven at the airport. Steven designs and creates all of our bottle labels and packaging. We’re stoked he could join us, even though he’s a couple days late!

Stay tuned for more from the #roadtogabf on the Saucony Punky BrewsTour

CLINK!
