New Cleveland Breweries in the Flats

When we moved to Washington in spring 2015, we committed to going back home to Ohio for key holidays and significant events.

Usually I insist on a week-long (at least) extravaganza involving travel and excess. In that respect, I suppose I was on track-- we really considered my tagging along for the fiance's work trip to be my big birthday affair.
