Labor Day Weekend: OBC & FCB

What is a trip to Fort Collins (or anywhere, for that matter) without a few brewery stops?

Our first stop was Odell Brewing Company, and before heading in, we allowed the girls to play a little bitty outside.  Little does Odell know that their bike racks make good jungle gyms.

Odell also had quite the number of grasshoppers jumping around, so Adam took a few moments to show the girls some grasshoppers, and even got Raven to touch a very dumb one.

Both Adam and I enjoyed a flight of beer.

Raven and Julia enjoyed the complementary water.  (You can see why we needed a mop.  Twice.)

Uh, oh!  Someone is getting sad and HUNGRY!

Julia says, “Let’s head over to Fort Collins Brewery!”  (Or maybe she said, “Let’s get some CHICKEN!”)

So off we went.  We ate at Gravity 1020, which is the restaurant connected to the Fort Collins Brewery.  Seeing this place was amazing, as I remember both Odell and FCB being much, much smaller!

I tried their Chocolate Stout and drank a bottle of their Vanilla Bean soda.  Adam also tried some beer.  While we waited for our food, Julia pretended to be the Little Mermaid and Raven played with a napkin on her head.

Adam and I enjoyed the food a bit, and I had my first ever Polenta Fries… yum!  Three is WAY too many, though!

After lunch, it was naptime for the girls (and Daddy too), so Adam dropped me off at Lambspun, conveniently across the street from FCB, and I shopped while Adam took the girls for a drive to get them to fall asleep.
