Hooray for Beer

A little sad Christmas is over but we had a wonderful time with my family and I hope you did too!
Part of the fun of Christmas is proving how much you know someone by surprising them with a gift that is thought out and unmistakably just for them. For example, when I go on and on to my husband about Pantone's color of the year 2013 being Emerald green and I think he isn't paying any attention then he surprises me with this:

To surprise my hubby with a gift isn't so easy. Everyone knows he loves three things: 1) Florida Gator football 2) golf 3) beer. So yes, he is your typical man. He isn't really into surprises but I found something perfect for him this year. We have an Anheuser Busch plant here in Jacksonville that gives daily tours and for a very reasonable fee, you can get a private Beer Master tour that takes you behind the scenes and even lets you taste directly from the huge barrel drums they make the beer in. I scheduled a tour and surprised him with it this weekend. I'm not a beer drinker at all but I figured he could drink mine and then he would love the present twice as much :)
We got there about 20 minutes early and they made us wear eye-protecting glasses, baseball caps and headphones so when we went into loud spaces you could hear still our guide through them. Other than a small incident where I got knocked unconscious in a freight elevator (totally not kidding, still have a bruised head) was a lot of fun. Instead of photos, I decided to video...Mike helped me pick out the music which just makes the video perfect. Hope you all received a few surprises of your own!
