I actually know more about beer than wine. But that was a blast on the wine tour last year. I think we had more Texans than Canadians, maybe that was it.

It is always fun, but a beer tour would be a nice thing to do too. I have no idea how many breweries are around Osoyoos.

Ah, Ned seems like a trooper, he could handle it.
It was the chap from Florida we had to put to bed on Scotch night.
BTW, much more of a Scotch connoisseur than a wine one too.

As I recall, you have to wade through stacks of Bud and Bud Lite to get to any craft beers at the Osoyoos government liquor store.
However, there are craft breweries springing up everywhere on a weekly basis.

Several in Penticton and Kelowna. Don't see any for Osoyoos or Oliver.

Unibroue La Fin Du Monde is another good one at 9%.


Wow Jim! Another great selection! Thanks to you after the Escape Rally, I have a least 7 bottles of great scotch in my locker.

Can I come over for some beer testing - scientific research only - of course? My liver may never be the same .... but it thanks you!

Wish you guys the best!

What a great idea Jim! I would really appreciate a local micro beer tour. Perfect! I like fine wines but a well crafted fine beer is something to live for .... well after you have your Escape Trailer that is. I vote for a Micro Brewery Tour during the 2017 Escape Rally.

Any one have an opinion?

It is now almost 5 am, do you know where your Escapes are? Mine is here but not available for 3 more hours, then emptying the truck, stowing away the gear, and heading out.

Yeah, awful sorry about that, Tom.
Or, is this liquor locker a ploy to get me to visit? It just might work, you know.

I think this is at least something to investigate, though as baglo alluded to, it seems there is not sure how many micro-breweries are in the area.

Getting excited yet? It is now 5:37am, but who's paying attention to the time?

Steady now; less than an hour. How can you stand the wait?

Edit: 7:10, and the first rays of the sun
blaze across those weary eyes.

Alf, I'm not sure you're right on that. He's getting a new 19 today but with the lead time on the 5.0 TAs being over a year, he probably needed some time to get his deposit down for his next trailer and make a trip to the florist and the Godiva choklit store. Right Jim?
