Happy friday everyone! I am excited to tell you about an awesome event I attended last week hosted by the chicago-based beer company, goose island. Goose island beer is launching in cities across the country and they are hosting ‘migration events’ for local bloggers. 
In partner with denver’s canvas and cocktails, the event showcased goose islands’ delicious female-friendly beers. As the sun set over the city, we were instructed how to create a painting featuring one of goose islands ales. I brought my girlfriend ashley with me who was the perfect date for the night; she was an art major in college and a beer novice.

I had previously done a few painting nights at canvas and cocktails so I had a good idea of what to expect. I would highly recommend you booking a class in denver or finding a similar studio in your city because it honestly is so much fun. 
Throughout the evening, we sampled the vintage ales of goose island including the sour-cherry madame rose, the herbaceous lolita, the juliet which was full of berry and spice, the sofie with its hits of grapefruit and finally the slightly fruity matilda. I was a huge fan of the lolita and the sofie was quite delicious too.

At the end of the night I was able to take home my painting (which I think turned out pretty good) and a super cozy t-shirt from the migration event as mementos of all the fun. Even better, I can now stop by local liquor stores here in dever to pick up goose island beers, enter: happy dance. 
Thanks to the ladies at goose island and canvas and cocktails for such a fun night!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you
    wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that
    you just can do with some % to drive the message house a bit, but other
    than that, that is great blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
