We couldn't go this way...Hasselhoff photo shoot in progress.
We were able to worship at the Shrine-O-Beer.
Then we just waited around for a table to open up so we could get some free beer. FREE BEER!
And lovely beer it was.
I had (clockwise staring at upper-right hand corner): Loose Lips (a darker beer concocted by Jessica, who works at New Belgium); Old Cherry (ale brewed with real cherry juice); Mothership Wit (an organic wheat beer); and Blue Paddle (a Pilsner Lager).
After enjoying our brews and the company of two groups that visit the brewery every day, we headed in to Fort Collins for a little shopping and a stop at the O'Dell Brewing Company. Angie and I shared a tasting tray. MMMM...More beer!
I was shocked when we arrived at Coors Field about 5:00 p.m. and I saw more Twins jerseys and hats than Rockies! By the time the game started, this had corrected itself, but I still felt right at home. We were surrounded by Twins fans and lots of "Circle Me Bert" signs. I felt right at home.
By this time, we needed to head to Denver for the Minnesota Twins/Colorado Rockies game.
Even better, the Twins won Friday night, 4-2. My favorite Twin, Carlos Gomez injured his wrist making the game ending play though. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
The evening ended with a successful search for a street burrito, and then arriving back at Angie's house to curl back up in that comfy bed.
Coming tomorrow: Day Two, the Buddha portion of the trip.
