TBP Photo Journal T6: California

I'll be the first to admit that we didn't have the best time in California. It's damn near impossible to sleep in a car legally and/or free anywhere on the coast south of San Francisco. That along with almost a 40 cent jump in gas prices made it super difficult for us to stay within our daily budget. Thankfully, we made it out alive and are now in Oregon for the foreseeable future. Check out some photos and quick stories from our time in California below.


Road Log #1: First Month Ramble

A month deep. Well, a month and four days now. Boy how time flies. The last time we took a cross country trip we did it in something like 24 days, so getting used to taking things slow was definitely a bit of a change. Looking back on it, it's amazing how much we romanticized the idea of working from the road. Turns out that when you spend all day collecting firewood, setting up camp and cooking your meals for the day you usually don't have much excess time or energy to sit down and work on beer label proposals. We've tried to keep a steady pace and have definitely been getting our work done, but the idea of weekly blog posts and features flew out the window real quick once we got going.

TBP Photo Journal 11: Hither Hills

With a ton of work and personal stress on the horizon the next few weeks, we decided to take a few days off and take advantage of our beautiful home.  I was born and raised in Suffolk County, and now that I'm pushing 25 I can finally say I visit the town of Montauk, New York.  We spent the weekend "camping" (if you wanna call it that) at Hither Hills State Park.  We lucked out.. by the time we finished the drive out there all of the rain had subsided.  Swimming, hiking, exploring, and a ton of time at the brewery.  Check out some of the shots from the trip after the break.
