My CBC 2017 and Trip Home

This post is not going to have a lot of quality content, it is more just a summary of places I went and beer I drank. I have about 10 different quality posts that will follow on individual topics in the weeks to follow from everything I saw and did. It’s also important to note that most of the beer consumed was in 2-4oz form.
