Keystone Homebrewing

 In 2011 we visited Philadelphia for Christmas. While there we visited the new location of Keystone Homebrewing, which is Andy’s store of choice. I had been to the old location a couple of times, it was located in an old house and it was jammed with products for the homebrew crowd. This new location has all kinds of room with more products available. I didn’t expect to find these large items. This threesome of images taken at Keystone Brewing during our visit were lost for a while, I’m glad I found them. I did think about buying the glass, what an excuse, “Officer, I only had one glass of wine.” Do you think that would work?

Big Buds

This was the 2nd image taken in Manitowoc, Wisconsin after taking the ferry across Lake Michigan. The Cedar Crest cow in front of the dairy was the first. This in questionable as a Big Thing but since I’ve downed a few Bud’s in my time and I thought only fitting to add to the site.

St. Johns Beer

We were on our way from Indianapolis to the cottage Up North in Michigan and stopped to see my Uncle Ed in St Johns, Michigan. We went out for lunch and then downtown to find some Czech pastries. We missed out on the pastries since the bakery closed at 1pm, but these was a celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the St Johns Fire Department. We came across this big Miller Lite bottle right there in downtown.

Corona in Tulum

It was a HOT and sunny day in Tulum, treat Mexico. We had walked out to the Mayan ruins, viagra poked around for a couple of hours and then walked back. I was feeling pretty wiped out. When, healing lo, Deb said “look at that will you.” And there it was, this big Corona bottle. So I went into the park store and had a couple to cool down. Hey, Karen, I bet if you drank this whole bottle of Corona, you would get up and dance the Macarena.

Columbus Beer

Deb and I drove to Columbus to see the Crew play DC united and the phenom Freddie Adu. This was a birthday present for Deb, we spent the night there and it was a lot of fun. On the way back we found the highest point in Indiana. What a thrill!

Limberlost Beer

One of my favorite bar/restaurants is the Limberlost in Houghton Lake, Michigan. I like to go to lunch here. You can sit outside on the deck, view the lake, and have a cold beverage and something to eat. They are kind of party central so if you want a relaxing weekend evening in Houghton Lake you might stay away from the Limberlost.

Big Buck Beer Bottle

This may become my favorite image. Imagine, a 47 foot high Big Buck Beer Bottle! Doug Osburn pay attention! This bottle is in Gaylord, Michigan and there is another Big Buck Brewery in Auburn, Michigan that has a “Big Buck Beer Bottle” out in front, go figure. By the way they have a great menu as well, go eat there. Credit to Glen McCone for the painting on the bottle.

“The Quelle” Guinness

On the way back from Long Beach Island, NJ is a bar and restaurant, “The Quelle” that had this big inflatable over the deck. Deb and I had a beer and a frank after a hard day taking Big Pictures, all the while sitting under this gem. Fortunately we met the owner and once again Deb talked him into taking us up on to the roof for this photo opportunity.

Monster Beverages Fosters

Here’s an example of timing. Monster Beverages was having their Grand Opening sale in Glassboro, NJ when I spotted this inflatable. Without camera or photographer at the time I wheeled in and asked if this beauty would still be up on Saturday. After a couple of strange looks and consultations I found out it would.
