#LoveYYC Day

Happy EXTRA HOUR OF SLEEP DAY! Yesterday for #LoveYYC day, the missus and I hit a bunch of local food and drink venues to take advantage of free tours, free swag, and free samples. Because the only time you should turn down free anything is if it's candy from a creepy old guy in a wood paneled van. But that's neither here nor there. We hit up the Big Rock brewery for free swag and tastings, the Crossroads market for lunch, Fiasco Gelato for a tour and tasting, and ended off at Village Brewery for a couple pints and tour of the production facility. #fatguystuckinaskinnybody

LoveYYC Day-15-2
We'd finish off the evening gorging ourselves on takeout and blind tasting a few random beers in the fridge.

And you can't hang out with friends drinking beer without snapping a Polaroid or two.
