It’s Sunday night and Kate and I just got home after an 11-hour drive from Louisville. I’m tired, probably a touch dehydrated, yet I’m still feeling a sense of euphoria from the time we spent in Kentucky.

This is the first American Solera brew I had and that little pour at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival wasn’t near enough.
