I miss traveling. Sure, a few times a year I’m lucky enough to jump around the United States to check out a different beer spot, but that’s not the traveling I’m referring to. The traveling that I miss is the kind where you get off a plane in a country that feels completely foreign, you don’t speak the language and you are just forced to figure it out.

GABF ’15 Snippets: Our Mutual Friend Wins Silver, I’d Give ‘Em Gold

Our Mutual Friend Brewing - Denver

During the GABF award ceremony I was sitting front row center, which was a great opportunity to witness the facial expressions on people’s faces as they came up to accept their awards. After the ‘Wood and Barrel-Aged Sour Beer’ category was announced, three guys who looked barely 30 approached the stage looking like deer in headlights. These were the guys behind Our Mutual Friend Brewing, a local Denver-based brewery that took home silver in the category for
