Fun times in Wisconsin!

This weekend, Logan and I went to visit Maria and Brian in Wisconsin for the day.  Our first stop was the Leinenkugel "Leinie Lodge" for a brewery tour.






I also tried a mix of Summer Shandy (made with lemonade) and Berry Weiss (made with blackberries, elderberries and loganberries) to make "pink lemonade" which tasted exactly like pink lemonade... so yummy!


After the Leine's tour, we went out for Mexican, my favorite!  We were about to leave when the table next to us got a birthday sundae and a birthday song.  I quick told the waiter, and instead of bring Maria the birthday sundae (they were all adults too), they brought her a shot in a martini glass and lit it on fire.. along with a tequila shot for the rest of the table. 




Maria taking her flaming birthday shot!

XOXO

We took my mom out for Mexican on her birthday the end of August and she got a tequila shot too... but they didn't bring one for everyone else! Boo!!

Looks like y'all had such a great time! I've never toured a brewery, but I've heard it's a must!

awe - looks like much fun! .. i've been to supposide 'brewery's' - but they really were just a bar and resturant that made their own beer - no 'tour' .. i'd love to go on a beer tasting tour for sure!

I've never visited a brewery but think it would be such much.

Mexican birthday's are my favorite! Looks like you had such a great weekend!

Haha we used to drink shandy when we were in school and we felt really grown up drinking 'beer'! The berry stuff looks good. The hat is so cool!

Ooooh when Summer Shandy first came out a couple years back, my sister and I were at a bar here in town and Jake Leinenkugel was there promoting it and I had my first taste of the Pink Lemonade! Isn't it great?!

Carolyn Connelly said...

Wow, that looks good! I have to try the berry one!!! I LOVE pink lemonade, but am not a huge fan of beer. So, this might make for a good "gateway" beer!

Thanks for this post!
