Riding to the Gig

I've wanted to do this for a long time and it seemed the timing was right Friday. Loaded up the bike with my guitar and gear and proceeded to ride out to St. Joe. I had a stiff head wind the whole way, but I arrived on time. Unfortunately, out of no where the weather went bad(not forecasted) and we were pelted with high winds and a downpour. The farmers market venders scrambled to take down their tents and I had to abandon my mission and hitch a ride home with a band mate. Luckily, we will be playing the market again and I will go for a repeat.

Spalt Delegation to Visit Our Brewery

June 2nd marks the day that we will be having 60-80 guests from Spalt, Germany visiting the brewery. Spalt is St. Cloud's sister city and the delegation will be kept busy during their visit in Central Minnesota. I will be giving tours during the afternoon and they will be able to sample our craft brews and enjoy some food. Spalt's brewery is the last remaining brewery in Germany to be municipally owned. I hope to connect with the brewery in the future to form some type of partnership. I was able to secure some Spalt hops in this years hop contract, so look for special brews in the future. I'm really excited to show our guests what American craft brewing is all about.

The Hawk is My Co-Pilot

I was out mountain biking the Jail Trail today when suddenly I heard a bird calling as it flew over my head. I stopped and looked up in the trees to see a broad winged hawk perched looking down at me. Cool. As I rode away and got farther from the hawk, it vocalized again, flew and landed in another tree close to me. This went on about ten times as he followed me through the woods. It was probably protecting it's territory, but I'd like to think it was along for the ride. Raptors rule!
