Soquel is calling…will you answer?

Among my favorite things in the world are hiking and drinking beer.

Today was a particularly awesome day as it was my friends birthday and we went to one of my FAV places to get beer.

Initially we attempted to hike at the medicine buddha – but alas, the public can not hike there on Saturdays. So spur of the moment we decided to head to Nisene State Park. It is not the best place to go with a pup and there is an entrance fee but despite these setbacks we had a great time explorin’.lightthroughtreestraillodgingforthenightstick-homeriver crossingovertheriver

Now for the piece de resistance… Beer Thirty! If a could marry a bottle shop this would be my first choice. The key is getting to go food at Carpos ( next door). For my veg friends your options are more limited ( salad bar, grilled cheese, veg burger) but if you eat meat get the tri tip sando ( YES!). So… you get your food to go, head next door to Beer Thirty grab some brews and hang out… Once you are done eating, get a refill and play some corn hole or ping pong! This place is dog and kid friendly so no excuses!

We already knew that wine was good for us… but beer has health benefits too?!

My standard glass of red wine with dinner might be swapped for an IPA more often now!
