Dog Beers - Yes, These Are For Real...(and not for the dogs!)

This past weekend in OH we not only judged, but did a few fun things as well.

We went to this amazingly HUGE grocery store called Jungle Jim's where they have every specialty item you could ever dream of. We seemed to be stuck in the wine, beer and cigar section (one of Dan's hobbies) and being the dog enthusiast I am, I took the opportunity to take pictures of the dog-themed beers.

Here were some of the names we saw:
* Ellie's Brown Ale - featuring a chocolate lab of course!

* Garde Dog
* Tire Bite Golden Ale
* In Heat Wheat Hefe Weizen
* Raging Bitch
* Labrador Lagar (from Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.)
* Old Leghumper (also from Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.)

The only one we were able to try was the Ellie's Brown Ale (in honor of Dan's Chocolate Labs Sadie and Burton).

On a slightly different note, we were able to take our beer, wine and Dan's cigar selections back to the hotel and picked up some great take-out from Olive Garden. We plucked a large blanket from the hotel room and nabbed a shady spot in the grass under a tree behind the hotel for a little picnic.

Within minutes, several exhibitors joined us (they're always welcome!) and soon we had a crowd hanging out on the blanket, enjoying wine, beer and cigars (the men...). The weather was gorgeous and I think it was one of the most amazing evenings I've had in a very long time.

I told my hubby he needs to plan a picnic for us in the future. It was a simple luxury and I highly recommend it.
