Disc Golf Courses and Beer Flights


Lots of interest these days in playing disc golf while sipping a good craft beer at a local brewery. So much interest that lists are now made judging some of the best in the country. And one of the South Carolina's Upstate breweries with such a course made the list from a national organization, Udisc. 

Our local brewery is Golden Grove, about 20 miles south of Greenville, off I-85. Kudos to them! I haven't joined the disc bandwagon but I do like their beers! Cheers!

Ponderosa Farm Brewing Releases First Beer.

 An especially delightful day to welcome the first ever release of Ponderosa Farm Brewing's Pale Ale: a very satisfying and solid Pale. Described by brewer, Adam Cribbs as "a 4.7% crusher, alight and balanced Pale Ale with Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, and Zeus hops. Aroma is floral with hints of lime. Sips with notes of orange zest, tropical citrus flavors, and dry orange peel."

Add to that description the fact that it is delicious; you'd never know this is a first run beer.
Of course Adam works with Cameron Owen to brew those famous pastry stouts at Eighth State so he is no newcomer to brewing. I would look at this release as a sign of good things to come in the future! Cheers, Adam.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Brewery 85's Eighth Anniversary will take place.  Will promises a fun time and he's never failed before. It occurred to me that I've been nearly all of them so I went back into the photo time machine and found opening day photos, which I present for your amusement and edification below. See ya there!
