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.

Trip Route, Some Samples, & Other Updates

Welp, it's starting to get real.  It's a Monday afternoon on a cool Fall day and neither of us are at work.  The era unemployment/funemployment begins!  We've been running around all morning packing, working on the truck, and throwing a ton of stuff on Craigslist.  With our departure date we wanted to post a quick route update and a rough schedule.  The more friends, family, fans and strangers we meet along the way the better!


Above is a rough route of our first leg of the trip, we  have the destinations in place with no actual timetable for the most part, so bear with us.  We figure to spend the first week or so in New York visiting our families before heading down the coast.  Check the rough schedule below and if you're in/around any of these areas and would want to meet up!

We're a few days out and still have plenty of gear to get rid of.  We'll be posting a ton of samples and unreleased one-offs on the store the next few days and have been keeping our eBay and Craigslist posts flowing.  Thank you all again for all of the support.  See you on the road!
