Got a chance to catch up with an old friend here in the Cherry Creek area of Denver. Brendan is a good friend from the Zahm Hall days of Notre Dame. Great to see you, Mig!
We had a few brews and a burger at Duffy's Cherry Cricket. It's a cool place with a downhome vibe.
The burgers are pretty famous, and for good reason. The Cricket Burger was quite tasty, complete with green chiles and a slice of avocado. I got to have some brews I don't normally get on tap like Great Divide's Titan IPA and Oskar Blues' Mama's Little Yella Pils. Also on tap was the Mile HIPA from Wynkoop Brewing. Really nice IPA with pretty aggressive hop flavor, decorating a malty base. Not sweet, though. Hoppy and awesome.
Well, I'm off to a good start here in Colorado. Stay tuned for more minute-by minute updates and some more refined posting after the weekend is in the books. Cheers!
