Outside the brewery together
We decided to do the free tour of the brewery as well. I heard from a few people not to do it because it's just one room and mainly someone just lectures to you, but I thought it was decent. You can get a beer before the "tour" and drink it during, so it in no way wastes your time. The guy who gives the talk about the brewery is funny. Part of the talk is about the owner of the brewery Steve Hindy, who turns out to be a super interesting person. Hindy started brewing his own beer while he was a war correspondent in the Middle East. The New York Times just wrote an article about Hindy.
This is what the tour looks like
Mainly, it was a really fun group of people. Jaime came all the way from Virginia to hang out and watch the Super Bowl the next day. Ash and Kate came down from upstate New York. Michele, Kate's brother Matt, and their cousin Brian live in the city.

Oh yeah, and thanks to my beer love I broke my autofocus on my Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS SLR Lens, so now I'm buying my first non-kit lens. Sometimes something bad turns into something good.
