Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 181 - Riegeler Landbier by Fürstlich Fürstenbergische Brauerei

Six months down!

Picked this up at our dinner stop a few km south of Freiburg, Germany, during our 12+ hour drive home from Blogville in Emilia Romagna, Italy. A very decent Helles Lager. Nice bitterness and malty flavor.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 179 - Alley Hop by Birra Bellazzi

A local double IPA from here in Bologna. Nice balanced bitterness. 8.5% ABV, so not overly strong. Very drinkable.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 177 - Rrose Selavy by Dada

The Rrose Selavy Saison is a perfect summer terrace beer from Birrificio Dada out of Correggio in Reggio Emilia province. A fine, bitter funk. Very enjoyable.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 175 - Siciliana, Piemontese, Friulana, Toscana by Birra Moretti

Stopped by the Birra Moretti experience while visiting the World Expo 2015 in Milan.

Four totally different flavors based on the same lager. Siciliana, with a flavor of Sicilian orange blossoms, Friulana, with Friulian Pippin, Piemontese, with red berry flavors, and Toscana, with barley and spelt. So very different, and all quite flavorful and enjoyable.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 169 - La Bionda by BirraNatura. 

It's ok. A bit over-carbonated. Some banana-wheaty flavor comes out as it sits.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 168 - Panil Barriquée by Panil Birrificio Torrechiara

From the brewery just below Torrechiara castle near Parma. We had a great tour of the brewery and tasting of a selection of their beers and other artisanal products. Some of the best beers in Italy, here #inEmiliaRomagna . Make sure to serve at the proper temperature. So much great wood flavors with the sour. Some bitterness on the aftertaste. Very nice.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 180 - Originale 4 Luppoli by Birrificio Angelo Poretti

Picked this up in Modena, Italy in the start of our drive home to the Netherlands from Bologna. Finally had to stop driving around 1AM, and drank this at a hotel in Mainz, Germany.

Basic lager, but a decent bitterness. May have enjoyed it more if it had been colder and I had been more awake.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 178 - Pink IPA by Almond 22

I tried this beer at Le Mille e Una Birra, a new beer bar located just steps away from the Albergo Notarie and Piazza Prampolini in Reggio Emilia. A nice Italian IPA with decent bitter flavor, and a little spice.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 176 - Birra del 150° Anniversario Ambrata by G. Menabrea & Figli.

Drinking this beer in the middle of the Piazza Prampolini in Reggio Emilia, Italy.  The beer was a wee bit sweet. Malty and caramel. But the view is to die for.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 174 - Leön by Birra Baladin.

The beer of June 23, 2015 was Leön by Birra Baladin. A little sweet for my taste. Expected maybe a little sour, but it didn't come. So...not a sour beer. More like a Bock.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 167 - Birra Doppia Malto alle Castagne Affumicate e Ginepro

Birra Doppia Malto alle Castagne Affumicate e Ginepro — Double Malt, Smoked Chestnut and Juniper — by Beltaine, from Granaglione near Bologna. Part of the outstanding drink pairing menu we chose with our lunch at the new world’s #2 best restaurant, Osteria Francescana by Massimo Bottura. Beautiful spices in this beer. Paired great with the “Rice and Polenta that Wants to be a Pizza” dish.

Our Tasty Travels - Tasting the World, One Country at a Time
Introduction
I am an expat and world traveler, currently based in the Netherlands, near Eindhoven, recently living in Taipei, Taiwan, but originally from the USA.  I work for a high-tech manufacturer in the semiconductor industry by day, but the rest of the time I explore my loves of travel, wine, beer and food.

I love flying, scuba diving, taking long road trips, staying in nice hotels, eating in nice restaurants, eating street food, and hanging out in bars / pubs.  I strive to find the highest point in any city to see the best view there is to see.

I was born in Connecticut, and went to high school and college in Pennsylvania.  I spent a few years working for family and friends before deciding I was ready for corporate life and trying to find a job in industry.  It took me a while, and I had to move from Pennsylvania back to Connecticut, but I finally landed a temp position with a company in 1999...and am still there today!

I've been to 47 different countries, and have done multiple round-the-world trips, including some of the craziest itineraries you could imagine.  Now my travels are a little more sane, but I still love to take every opportunity to go to new places.

We run our blog, Our Tasty Travels, in which we showcase some of our favorite restaurants, foods, wines, beers and experiences from around the word.  Always open to try new places and new experiences, be it street food or three-star dining.

I've been a beer lover for years, always looking to try new beers.  The first thing I look at anywhere I go is the beer list.  If there's anything on the list I haven't tried before, I go for that before anything else they have on offer.  I've tried hundreds of beers, but have only just recently begun to chronicle these experiences.  I guess I need to go back and taste them all again?

I've been a lover of wine since my first visit to wine country, in Alsace, in December, 2008.  I was hooked for good after my first visit to Napa Valley in January, 2009.  I've since been to over 25 wineries in Napa Valley, and many more around the world, and love trying new varietals and new labels when possible.

I'm a certified PADI open water diver since 2010, and love taking every opportunity I can to dive in a new location, wherever in the world I am.  Would love to hone my photography skills, and learn enough to justify some serious underwater photography gear.  Right now we're on our second cheap underwater point-and-shoot, though this one is with a housing at least.  Let's see hour our 2011 vacation pics come out...

I also love movies.  Up through 2009, I had seen every movie in the IMDB top 250, and am trying to catch back up on some new entries to the list (which unfortunately, almost all seem to be unavailable on Netflix Streaming) :-(  I love all types of movies, and would love some good suggestions for movies that I may have missed that are worth seeing...

Had a great experience at Rough Draft. We tried a great line-up of beers, and really enjoyed seeing and hearing about their brewing process. I look forward to trying some of their one-off single-cask offerings on Thursdays.
