I was in Vienna for a few days. Naturally I was trying to fit in as much as I could and didn’t make much time to draw. This is a drawing from one moment alone while waiting for diner at the Cafe Schwarzenberg. The Vienna cafes always serve your drink on a metal tray with a napkin.

Two drawings from the Beer Line Trail bike path, a very pleasant stretch of bike path in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood.

Sprecher Brewery has outfitted an old fire engine as a mobile beer truck and will be setting up in variousMilwaukee County parks. I stopped by after work and enjoyed some beer at McKinley Park on the shore of Lake Michigan.

The converted fire engine before they opened it up. The side opens up and there are about a dozen beer taps inside.

I saw six packs of Genesee Cream Ale in the cooler of my local convenience store and it brought back memories of my grandparents who lived near Utica, New York. I thought that we had been on a brewery tour when I was a kid but I think I’m confusing it with the Utica Club Brewery in….Utica, New York. At any rate, it’s not a bad cheap beer but I can see myself getting sick of it if I’m not careful.

I really like the simple green, white and black design of the can.

It’s a nice evening to be out in the back yard. I just finished cutting the grass,  drinking a beer and the dog has found something really good to roll in. It’s a good thing she’s getting a bath later.

I was in Dallas a few weeks ago, traveling alone on business. After watching the Green Bay Packers beat the Saints, alone at a sports bar, I went down the street to a sports restaurant and had another beer and dinner. Traveling alone can get a bit lonely, like this sad glass of beer.
