December 3, 2016 - Picnic Time
I can’t assistance though check out a splash stage each place we travel. Thanksgiving week wasn’t any different. My husband’s family lives in Maryland, in a suburbs of Washington, D.C., and one of my favorite non-Virginia breweries, Flying Dog, is not too distant from there.
When he lived there, we would make a indicate of removing to a brewery, or during slightest bringing behind a six-pack of something we can’t get during home.
On a expostulate up, while we was scrolling by Instagram, Flying Dog’s pickled caramel brown, a brewhouse rarity, in bottles, held my eye. we have to admit, my favorite Starbucks splash in a tumble is a Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino, so this would be a splash form, right? we didn’t get to squeeze a bottle, though we devise to possibly this week, or when we conduct behind adult for a family Hanukkah party.
When you’re traveling, check out a internal scene. It will give we a possibility to try something we can’t get during home, or sip on an aged favorite. So many qualification splash fans contend they support a attention since it’s ancillary internal businesses. Don’t remove that mindset when you’re divided from home.
