Tomorrow I’m planning to do a long run again – 13 miles hopefully. To prepare myself for the run, I took the day off from running and made sure to eat plenty of carbs. I’ve fueled myself with Girl Scout cookies, sea bass with spaetzle, creme brulee, and beer.
Beer Geek and I went out to the Liberty Tavern for dinner tonight. Dinner was YUM! and they had a small but very good beer selection. We started out the meal with a shared New Holland’s Dragon Milk (with 9% alcohol, sharing is best) and then I had a Kasteel Rouge for my second beer. Back in the days before strict airline regulations, I carried a backpack full of Kasteel back from Belgium. It was so heavy that every time I stood up, it slowly pulled me over backwards. I’m quite thankful that I can now get it locally.
The boys and I went to a couple of local stores today and began putting together our “beer basket” for the auction. I’ve decided to include only regional beers (VA, MD, PA, and DE to be exact) and am attempting to make sure there is no duplication of style. To that end, we are planning a trip to the Blue and Gray brewery next weekend and to three Charlottesville area breweries the weekend after that. Yeah, I’m willing to sacrifice like that.
Guess we’ll see tomorrow if the theory that beer is good fuel is accurate or not.
(Any typos are in your imagination and are not at all related to the beers I”ve drunk).
