Let’s talk about beer. Kate and I met in a bar and one of our first conversations was about Roger’s masculinity and drinking IPA’s. So beer is important to us and we hope it is to you. Either way we want to help make sure the conversation happens or that we just sit around enjoying the beautiful technology known as beer.
While staying in Charleston SC for a week we had some time to explore the area and see what they had to offer for breweries. Kate used the magic of Google to find Cooper River Brewing. Since they had three IPA’s on the menu she was sold on giving them a try.
The IPA’s were all very tasty and a good destination for anyone who likes a good IPA. If you are picky then you should read some other blog that gives a shit. Personally if its got a good hop taste and we can drink a few of them then winner winner non-chicken dinner.
Barrel Aged Blended Ales
Bulleit Bourbon Rye Golden Ale – Feb 2016 – Very delicsious. We recommend they call it the Cooper River Old Fashioned.
Scottish Ale, Porter, ESB Bourbon Rye Blend – Aug 2016 – Very good as well.
Overall we would drink till we needed a cab home at this brewery so you should to.
Take 7 minutes and enjoy this video of clouds. One thing I miss about Arizona is the amazing skies.

Kate and I love beer. In fact our first conversation was about beer and how she thought I was a wimp for not liking IPA’s. When we travel to new towns we like to goto bars but even better we like to find local breweries and drink good fresh unique beer.
We rolled into Rare Form after doing a river boat cruise in Albany. Someone mentioned Rare Form when we asked about breweries in the area so we headed that way and man are we happy we did. First off all Troy is a unique and neat little town. It has had its ups and downs but seems to be doing well now, or at least coming up a bit, and Rare Form seems like a solid identifier that quality small businesses are taking hold.
The first time we visited we met Jenny, one of the owners, and talked about the brewery and how great all the beer is. I mentioned wanting to interview them for a video and after we got our schedules to work that is what you see above.
We spent a few days at Fresh Tracks Farm as part of the Harvest Host program. They were all very nice people and the wine was delicious. Roger made this movie of their grounds for you to enjoy.
Recently purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Pro 4K flying camera and took it on its first flight. It is a lot of fun to fly and really easy to take boring video with. This short edit has more spinning shots that I prefer but this is how we learn, right? If you have a 4K tv be sure to crank the resolution up and let me know what you think.

The live interview has passed with Kristin Lajeunesse about Will Travel for Vegan Food. Now you can watch the recording here. Roger did a good job of keeping his mouth shut and learning more about Kristin’s adventure and new book which you can get on her publishers website Vegan Publishers or at Amazon where it is currently the best seller for Solo Travel Guides!
Watch the recording of our video interview with Kristin of Will Travel for Vegan Food
In the interview we talk about her new book and how it came about. Kristin shares some pointers on preparing for a journey like this. Hint: Get a notebook and keep track of what you want to do and why. We learn about the vegan scene in Fargo North Dakota (spoiler: its pretty awesome) and the lack of a scene in Alaska (come on alaska lets get it going =). Kristin shares her thoughts on vegan activism and specifically a group she works with Farm Animal Rights Movement.
Watch the video and get the book.
