Summer’s not over yet! and Summer Sundays are meant for adventure and exploring new places.
Sundays are my favorite day, the one day a week I am guaranteed a day off work.
A day to spend any way I please!
On this hot August Sunday easy and breezy was on the outfit agenda, so I chose a sundress with a strappy back who’s bold pattern caught my eye. The orange and pink pattern on a black backdrop, pair perfectly with my Jean Michel Basquiat “In This Case” sunglasses by Etnia Barcelona.
The flash mirror coating in sunset colors match perfectly with the dress. It’s Sunday, and I’m leaving the hairdryer out of the equation, opting instead for a hat to complete the total sun protection required for a summer day outside.
We set off on a mini road trip out to Abbotsford to check out a local craft brewery, The Field House. This little brewery is receiving high praise not only for their selection of beer, but for their great food and outdoor area, perfectly equipped for lounging away a summer afternoon.
The Field House Brewery is charming and inviting with a nostalgic feel that reminded me of summer days spent in my grandparents backyard (think lush green grass and bright coloured folding chairs). I always like to start with a taster, before I commit to one thing. So I decided that this warm summer day called for light, refreshing beers.
I was delighted by the details, from the rustic wood flight tray, to the photographic description cards that come with each beer, The Field House Brewery have thought of so many ways to infuse their brand into each component.
For my taster I choose a:
Light Saison; Fresh like early morning air, this sour herbaceous farmhouse holds the energizing qualities of lemongrass and the tartness of lactobacillus.
Light Brett; A sunny beer with flavors of juicy white wine and luscious stone fruits.
Eastern IPA; This IPA has a punch of aromatic hops offering white grape and stone fruit flavors.
Dutch Pale Ale; mellow in malt and bitters, but finishes with a hit of new world hops.
I was feeling relaxed, toes in the grass, sun on my shoulders, enjoying some great craft beer. How could this get better?…Good food of course! We picked a charcuterie board that not only looked delicious, it featured all local ingredients, making this farm table feel even more authentic. Fresh sourdough, pickled vegetables, cheese and meats, it was a perfect pairing with the craft beer.
Leave plenty of time to lounge and indulge at The Field House Brewery, it’s a great way to send a summer afternoon!
