Living the Northshore Life, Drinking Local and Looking at Dogs.

Yesterday was a beautiful day to go out and enjoy the sunshine and lack of horrible rain. So we went across the lake to the Barley Oak. Chafunkta Brewing decided to do a little celebration for Saturday, 5/04 , by promoting their Old 504 Porter and donating a portion of the proceeds to St. Tammany Humane Society. Local beer, puppies, and sunshine... it was the perfect Saturday.

Summer the cutie pie puppy!
Josh and Jamie also told me of a delicious concoction they were calling the "Old Ray" which is their Voo Ka Ray topped, black & tan style, by the Old 504.

Stone's Enjoy By! Hooray! (been looking for bottles of this for weeks)

In conclusion, best Saturday outing ever! Local Louisiana beer, good friends, awesome dogs, and the sun (finally) shining. It's nice to get out of the city and just sit back and enjoy the simple and good things in life. I find that more often than not, craft beer helps with that.

Also, I have discovered that Chafunkta will be unveiling a new beer at the WYES Private Beer Sampling on Friday, June 21. Josh wouldn't tell me what it is, but I will hopefully find out once his test batch comes out. So stay tuned!
