We suppose it's human nature to often times whine about the good ol' days and how much better things were back in the day.
So, in order to better appreciate how good things are right now and to acknowledge that at least in one respect things were not better as of a couple of weeks ago, let's all stand and recognize.... (drum roll, please)......
.... the opening of the Alpine Beer Co. tap room!
Yeah. It was kind of like Christmas morning yesterday afternoon.
Not incidentally, they also have a small kitchen that produced the best pulled pork BBQ sandwich we've ever had.
The mini-roadie out to Alpine reminded us of making similar treks to the geographically dislocated Tommy's Burgers of Southern California while growing up.
