From Oregon, with beer

I may have mentioned my fiancee once or twice on the blog, but indeed I am getting married very soon. To celebrate the occasion, my family is joining us in Japan, starting today with my brother and his wife and my mother and her husband. My brother Phil and his wife Julia are staying at my place, and they brought along many fine gifts, including these Oregon beers:

Although he was exhausted, my brother and I enjoyed a couple of these already, and it's nice to have a taste of home. Phil was wearing a matching sweatshirt:

I also got this T-shirt, which I'll proudly wear to an upcoming social function (not my wedding, though maybe the after party?):

Overall, I'm very happy to be with family. It's great that nice beer can be involved as well. I'll stop here, as I've got a long week ahead, and I still haven't finished buying beer for the after party.


  1. Brought the HUB CDA over last year but some bugger knicked it. I like laurelwood. Hit them for their anniversary and l drank everything they had. HUB too plus every other place I visited. Not bad. The HUB brewer used to be at Laurelwood, I think.

  2. Congrats, sounds like it's going to be a great wedding.

    IThe HUB CDA is the CDA by which all others should be measured -- fantastic beer. When you're next here in Portland, let me know.
