A beer, a song and a great sunset

This summer here in the Rockies has brought plenty of rain. More than we've had in the last several years. But, as is typical for this area, many times the storms come through in the late afternoon/early evening then give way to cool nights and beautiful sunsets.

Such was the case tonight. A shot of the sunset:

The beer of the night tonight - a classic. Harp Lager. It's smooth and easy, but has a good amount of flavor. It's another of those beers that can subtly coax your non-craft beer friends away from their Buds and MGDs and over into the light. And it's simply perfect for an easy summer night.

Paired my beer of the night with some great music from Little Big Town. Their latest album, A Place to Land, sounds like a mash-up of the Dixie Chicks and Fleetwood Mac. And trust me, that's a good thing. This is easily one of the most talented bands, in any genre, to come around in several years. Check out this one, "That's Where I'll Be."

Song of the Day, 7/20/09

Today's song - a great tune by Vega4. Have to admit I'd never heard of them before this song surfaced in a movie I was watching called "Sex Drive." A 2000's take on the typical 80's teen comedy. Movie was ok at best...but this song is fantastic. Enjoy!
