The beers were by and large underwhelming, those that I tasted. I found no ESB that didn't suffer from the popularity of pale ales and settled back into lagers. Longboard from Kona Brewing Co. I had while visiting my DS and his family. Nice. And although not very adventurous, I finished the day with a Stella Artois, a summertime favorite.
But screw the beer. I had a great time hanging with our friend and vet. I picked her up at her clinic and the rest, as they say (not really) "is pictures."
