We kept it simple this year with a family date to O’Connor Brewing Company, a brewery about a mile from our house.
We’d heard it was family friendly. With picnic-style benches, dogs, other babies, and a lot of ambient noise, it totally was.
The brews are charmingly named after local nautical themes. We got a sampler and tried them all! I don’t remember which ones were my favorites. We had a great time!
While the kids and I were staking out a table, I spotted a lady with a half-finished bag of Kroger brand chips and some salsa. I was secretly amused by this; even more so when Chris showed up with the chips and salsa we ordered at the bar…a full, unopened bag of Kroger brand chips.
“Come on, at least dump it in a bowl!” Chris laughed. Maybe it’s a hipster thing. We’re a little out of it lately. Or maybe next time we’ll just stop at the grocery store on our way in!
