I consider this form of blended bean and seasoning to be child’s play. Don’t get me wrong, I like […]

Salt River tubing and vegan runners

I’ve lived in Arizona for over ten years now and finally have gotten around to tubing down the Salt River. You hear a lot about the coolers full of beer and the people drinking all the beer but what you don’t hear about is the awesome view floating downstream. I went with an awesome group […]

What’s in My Beer?

You can’t really say no to a good pint of cold beer but not all beer is vegan, or even vegetarian for that matter. A lot of beers, including the well known Guinness Stout use fish bladders to filter out their beer. The ground version is called isinglass and is the stuff that filters out […]
