Books, Bicycling, and Beers 2023: North 20 Brewing

 I didn't even know this brewery - North 20 - even exited.  Right in my own hood, relatively speaking, over between Thomson Reuters and Rosemount.  Pretty new from the looks of things, particularly the bathrooms.  Beautiful patio overlooking a grassy farm valley.  I thought I was lost for a while when I turned onto a dirt road.  Gotta say, I'm glad I got to the brewery before the school busses started cruising down that dirt road, because they were barreling, and it wasn't very wide.

16.09 miles, 666 feet of ascent.

It's VERY new looking.  Nice and clean.  I hope the TR folks discover it as an alternate happy hour location.  It's much nicer than Union 32 imo.  Not quite the variety when it comes to appetizers, but I prefer not being gouged by the ounce.  The Crafttapped people were there for an event.  A bunch of TR co-workers used to be part of that system and the coordinator remembered at least one I mentioned.  I ponder signing up for it...at least in the summer, it would pick my location for me.

A Prairie View Pale Ale.  Super clean, easy to drink, and not too high in alcohol for once.  Constance Verity Destroys the Universe is the third in the series, and I've enjoyed all of them.  Although I agree with a young Aeryn, that Emperor Mollusk Versus the Sinister Brain is my favorite. I think Aeryn read that one half a dozen times.

I let Aeryn know I was there and they had food and a cookie so they could pop by for dinner.  They brought Cascadia [https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/295947/cascadia] with them and we snuck in a board game over dinner.  An easy ride, but I do have to say the 20+ mph headwinds are starting to take their toll on my legs.
