Apparently Blogger has restored my missing post from a couple of weeks ago...so rather than post it out into oblivion with the date as May 17th, I'm reposting it today :) It's not like anyone had time to see or comment on it anyway. Way to go blogger, for that, but hey...at least this means I'm not struggling to come up with a Thirsty Thursday topic this week ;)
For last week's [okay, like three weeks ago now] Thirsty Thursday, I wrote about mint juleps...because of the Kentucky Derby, of course. But one can only drink so many mint juleps, so while I baked my little heart out Saturday morning [May 7th] I sent Steve to one of our local breweries (Thomas Creek) for beer :)
We have two true local breweries, Thomas Creek in Greenville and RJ Rockers in Spartanburg. I actually prefer the types of beer that RJ Rockers brews over Thomas Creek beers, but I do love me some Thomas Creek River Falls Red Ale, Stillwater Vanilla Cream Ale, and Banana Split Stout.
Unfortunately, the Banana Split Stout is not always available...so imagine my excitement when Steve returned home with a growler of it! (as well as a second growler of my other favorite, the Vanilla Ale)
