Good for Ninkasi Brewing for supporting the arts.

Society needs to recognize that the creative craft brewing folks at Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene, Oregon have been doing a great job not only brewing fine IPA beers, but with their success, they are giving back to the world in note worthy ways.

I’m not going into details here, but you can certainly read about how cool the folks at Ninkasi Brewing are at the above or below links. ¬†As a beer drinking, guitar/bass plucking, drum beating, bad singing song writer with bad hair I personally wanted to take the time this holiday season to say ‘thank you’ for what you do. More folks should use this business model. Maximum respect Ninkasi and Cheers.

Keep up the good work.

Johnny’s OFF LICENSE Liquor Store, Rome

off l1

Located at Via Veio, 4 , near the San Giovanni metro station in Rome, Italy is the greatest beer and wine store around. The staff at Johnny’s OFF LICENSE are super knowledgable about the processes and tastes of their products and offer an awesome selection, especially beers.

You can drink on the streets in Rome, so you go in and buy yourself a coldie and simply enjoy it out front while talking with other beer professors. Much local knowledge can be learned from respectable folks at these street meetings, i.e. restaurant recommendations, train and bus info, etc.

These guys at Johnny’s OFF LICENSE are a hospitable bunch and even gave me a beer book to read while traveling. (3 Sheets to the Wind, Pete Brown)
This place is a must if you are tired of feeling like a tourist at the hotel. Tell them the Dude of Food sent ya.
