Mississippi River: End of Scamp Season

From October 2021 We started and ended our 2021 camping system on the Mississippi River.   We had one last brewpub to visit:  608 Brewing, named after the area code.  In most parts of the country, you would never see children in a bar.  Wisconsin isn't like most parts of the country. There were actually many kids running around in both the outside space and the inside space. The beer was pricey here, but I have to admit the hazy IPA would have my nomination for beer of the year.   With the Scamp put away, we stayed close to home until December.  The blog will pick up from there.

Why "Brewed Journey?"

“Brewing” is an interesting to me.  The common definition is to prepare a liquid by steeping, infusion, boiling or fermentation.

However, the definition I like the best is..."in the process of forming."  

As applied to people, we are always in the process of forming through the choices we make and our experiences.

Over the years, I’ve worked as a potato picker, newspaper route boy, soybean walker, hay maker, McDonald’s grillman, grocery stocker, assembly line worker, security guard, lawn and garden worker, paralegal, attorney, freelance writer, newspaper reporter, small business owner, and caregiver. 

I have traveled extensively, often by foot, including a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 1996.  I’ve been a beer homebrewer for over 30 years.  I home roasted coffee for many years, eventually opening a commercial roastery and coffee shop.  After selling that business,  I continue to roast and brew coffee for the fun of it.

If anyone needs to reach me, I am easily reached through the comments of this blog or via gmail, using the name brewedjourney.
