I’M NOT DEAD YET.

Sorry guys, I’ve been sentenced to beer purgatory once again. Let me share my struggles with you. #beergeekinasia.

That being said, this was my one respite. I managed to find a little craft brewery in Saigon where a brewer from Boulder has decided to settle down. Turns out at met the guy at a bar in Portland during CBC. What a small world!

Now, back to pain and punishment: China.

Oh hey, this looks interesting….I wonder where it might lead.

OMG OMG OMG this is what it must feel like to walk into J Wakefield Brewing!!!!!

Fuck, it’s a cocktail bar. Time to grab a consolation cocktail and cry my way home.

A new day, a new attempt:

MOTHER FUCKER. Fine.

Okay, one more time.

FUUUUUCCCCCCK. WHAT DOES A MAN HAVE TO DO TO GET A GOOD IPA AROUND HERE?! If you say Boxing Cat brewery I will cut you.

Okay, last ditch attempt. I managed to get an invitation to Vogue’s Fashion Show afterparty at M1NT. Super tall models? Check. People in need of sandwiches and other calories? Check. Craft beer, or any sort of beer?

Fail. At least there was a big shark tank.

Anyways, after being “gently” fondled by the lack of a craft beer scene, I escaped Shanghai and ran right into the arms of Guilin, also known as the place where humidity, bad roads, and karst formations go to party.

NO BEER. WAHHHHHHHHHH

But mountains? Yes.

Oh yes they have limestone mountains in spades.

Finally, out of money, with an overly hungry liver, I have run off to Thailand, where I can drink food and eat cheap street food until I die of dysentery. So I’ll be dying tomorrow.

I got the essentials the moment I got into my airbnb #livinglikealocal
