after checking the usual boring things off of saturday's to-do list, we treated ourselves with a trip to the lowry beer garden. we hadn't been before, but it's definitely been on our list of denver spots to try. and talk about kid friendly, there was a child's birthday party going on while we were there. there were the traditional long tables, ping (beer) pong and even a little play house. the menu looked great, but we stuck to beer (and possibly a soft serve that i promise i tried to share with hudson, he wasn't that interested) since we're on a budget. i was feeling indecisive so the bartender let me taste a few, including the really interesting and delicious denver beer kaffir lime wheat. i ended going with the dry rock brewing co apricot ale. and jer had a belgian style white and something else, but i can't recall. we were happy campers all around and can't wait to return for some more brew and perhaps even some food!
