The Tommyknocker Brewery is a place that brings a lot of memories back from my childhood. My dad and I would stop by this Colorado mountain town restaurant every time on our way back down to Denver from the ski slopes. Of course I could never have the beer, until this past week when I found it in the local grocery store here in Ames, Iowa. So of course I had to pick up a six pack. This turned out to be one of my top 5 favorite beers of all time. Now I know the truth as to why my Dad wanted to go there so badly. It wasn’t the amazing buffalo burritos, but rather it was the hand crafted beers. The Maple Nut Brown Ale is actually brewed with maple syrup that gives it an ultra smooth flavor. I highly recommend it if you happen to stumble on to this beer.
I hope everyone has a great Forth of July weekend with many great photo ops!
