It took forever for spring weather to get here, but now that it’s nice, we can start taking climbing trips again. This past weekend we made it to the New River Gorge, WV.
We got some great and some scary climbs in and were joined by Katy and Andy mid day. Later, for the hike out, K & A broke out the beers they carried in with them! They had a couple of good looking IPAs and I got to try my first Cigar City beer. I had the Jai Alai IPA by Cigar City Brewing of Tampa, FL at 7.5% abv.
It had an orange tropical papaya fruitness to it along with the resinous piney IPA bite.
After checking out the climbing shoes at the local gear shop, Katy and I got some beers while waiting for the boys.
I started dinner off with the Ayinger Bräu Weisse at 5.1% abv.
An unusual pick for me, but quite tasty and refreshing.
