Portland, how ya holding up during these gray days? If you’re looking for a cozy place to remind yourself about what’s good in this world, get on over to @littlebeastbeergarden. It never disappoints.

Sending a belated cheers to Sarah Pederson for her sale of @saravezapdx! Sarah has supported me in my beer endeavors for as long as I’ve been doing them, and I’ve long been inspired by her attitude, grit, and palate. I’m happy to report that Saraveza feels the same post sale. And that the Two Tone saison from @uprightbrewing was 💃💅💐💫

I skied more this season on Mount Hood than I skied during all the years I lived in Utah. Why? Because it’s fun! Turns out this thing I used to feel meh and anxious about makes me smile til my face hurts. So now I have a wish for you: ignore those assumptions you’ve been making about yourself and see what happens. And be sure to take some cans of beer in your backpack! You might need em.

Bikes n beer. It’s like chicken n rice. Skis n snow. Cheese n anything.

Gratuitous beer pic because let’s be honest, don’t we all want to be drinking at @pfriembeer right now?

Winter outtake because his adult teeth are coming in and I’m already nostalgic for 🧛‍♂️💗

Just some bad asses on a beach.

Oh you know, just a day in nature with two incredible women, one wonderful kiddo and a famous dog. (And then @jeff.alworth on the trail!)
