While staying with my buddy in North Carolina, I was also able to check off a few of my South Carolina meetings as well. I had a few responses to my messages which meant I had scheduled meetups. The first was a farm brewery, Benford brewing and the owner said he was brewing a special … More A Folk Tale Becomes Reality
When I was finished with Virginia it was time for North Carolina. Luckily for me, the friend connection streak could continue as I knew a few people living in North Carolina. A buddy I had been in touch with said I could stay with him the whole time which simplified the arrangements for me. I … More Connecting with Another University
Helllllllo!!! As has been a bit of a theme as of late, I have been sporadic with the blog postings. I do think the reasoning is warranted though, although it could be debated depending on the perspective. I have been working hard on getting the LIFT N BREWS shop up and functioning! It has been … More Shop’s Open!
Aloha! My name is Katie and I am honored to chime in as a guest writer for Jeremy’s blog. While I enjoy working out, more of my interest in Lift N Brews is on the beer side. Jeremy and I have had many brews together when he was living in Hawaii which is where I … More Guest Blogger: Katie!
This wasn’t my first time in Virginia as those who have been following each blog and have a keen memory may recall. I stopped over to visit some friends while navigating my way around Maryland, meeting with the gym and brewery owners there. I had to make a point to visit Virginia again because I … More Friends and Some Good Thinking

The brewery was Monkey Town Brewing and being in a small town they really took pride in their food along with good beer for people to try. I … More Work out in 1gym, Shower in Another
While I was in DC there were some hurricanes hitting the southeast, and potentially hitting again. I decided it would be better to detour a bit before heading down. I could’ve hit Virginia but some friends of mine were away on vacation and I had to see them. As such, I decided I’d have to … More Ahh the MOUNTAINeer State
Washington DC is a place I had a curiosity about for some time. Being from southern California, it wasn’t part of our school experience to take field trips there as so many on the east coast do. I had heard it was cool, heard it was inspiring, and heard it wasn’t that great. I have … More The Awe of DC
Heading to Maryland, I admit I was a bit foolish. I didn’t fully realize how close Maryland/DC/Virginia were necessarily. On the plus side, it worked out quite well for me. A couple years back, when I was at a training for work, I met a cool guy and we became friends. As it turned out, … More Merry Maryland
It was time for New Jersey. Rolling into New Jersey I had a friend that had some family and friends in the state which I thought I could leverage. Additionally, I had never been to Atlantic City and I thought that would be a fun experience. I’ve been to Vegas quite a few times with … More Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner
