BEST LIFE, BEST DAY, BEST BEER STOP: TAPPHORIA

The first ‘best life/best day’ of the year to hit seventy degrees feels like being a tourist in a familiar town. The leaves on the trees are greener, I noticed little flowers of many colors. Even the plants my wife bought and left in the garage darkness look like they want to come back to […]

Oregon BrewFest 2018 Featuring Famous Mandy Hat

  In a tradition unlike any other, the Oregon brewfest is more than tossing beers down on a hot day. It’s civic involvement. I’d like to think every big beer event carries similar goals.   If it’s only about drinking beer you can do that in your garage, or living room, or backyard. But it’s […]

BAD TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY SECRETS REVEALED

Find the right cluster of furniture piled behind a steel fence. If it carries an association with a famous author, all the better. Frame it in and push the button. All done, right? Photography secrets are in plain sight in this example. The fence distorts the view. The frame’s too small to read anything. It […]

LAST BEER CALL? MAKE IT THE BEST LAST BEER

      (Part I of two.) The Last Beer Call Champion: Breakside Brewery IPA. After traveling coast to coast, Breakside blew the competition away.
