3 beers, 3 books: What I’m drinking and reading these days

There’s nothing better than a cold beer and a good book, so I thought I’d write a blog post about both. I’ll call it three beers and three books. I mostly stay in my lane as far as beers go. I like Sam Adams, Bass, Newcastle, Moose Drool and Guinness Draught. Those are my go-tos. ...

New view: A quiet but hot run through Buckeye, Arizona
