Musical pairing – Mama Told Me by Three Dog Night

Whenever we travel, I love perusing the grocery store isles to check out the local brews. We really don’t drink much, but we can’t help but savor the heart and soul so many artisans are putting into the brewing craft. Even with Debra needing to go gluten-free, we have been pleasantly surprised at the variety of gluten-free beers and ciders. Cider is naturally gluten-free and ranges from very sweet to very dry with a wide range of taste characteristics.

During one trip to Chicago for a Verizon Wireless event, we were treated to a fabulous meal, and each course was paired with brew from Three Floyds Brewing Company located in our home state of Indiana. They have a brewery and brewpub north of us in Munster, Indiana and have become hugely popular among craft beer lovers. Founded by a pair of brothers and their father, the ‘three Floyds’ make a variety of unique, intense yet balanced beers; we’re definitely planning a trip to check out their brewpub.

By the way, these photos were taken with the LG Intuition from Verizon Wireless – the perfect cross between a tablet and a phone. We’ve been impressed with both the Intuition and the Motorola XYBoard that Verizon Wireless let us try out. The 4G LTE coverage has been particularly great when we travel as both devices have the ability to become a mobile hotspot. So, if you are in a hotel with slow wifi, stuck in traffic with your laptop or any time you need a reliable internet connection, you can connect all of your Wifi-enabled devices – it’s been a life-saver for us on the road!

Not only is this great beer, but take a look at the fantastic labels – colorful, creative pop art!
