20130809-110117.jpg Eric & Valerie are in town for a few days, visiting from France, so they had a get-together at Bastille in Ballard. Since Ballard is hard to get to for us, we thought we’d visit our friend Robyn who is building her brewery in Ballard, Stoup Brewing Co. Their equipment was delivered a couple weeks ago and they’re still setting it up, getting the boiler and chiller installed and building cold rooms and their tasting room. A block away is Reuben’s Brews, so we stopped over there for some sampler beers.

Then we went to Bastille for dinner and drinks with Eric, Valerie and a bunch of people we rarely see these days.
