Des Moines Beer Week and Happy Beer-Day to Me!

Jun 9, 2015

If you are reading my blog on the day it actually posts to Des Moines is Not Boring, then it is my birthday. As is the tradition in my family on someone’s birthday, instead of sending birthday cards, we deliver a birthday beer. My brother started the tradition years ago and it has stuck. Birthday cards get recycled (or worse, stuck in a shoe box never to be...
