This past Saturday, I biked down to the Adventure School for Ladies, and did a critique with the students there. The work was amazing, the students were incredible, I had a great time.

But it was a 15 minute bike ride, and the temperature was around 90, (note: my parents live in south Texas, and Niles’s parents live in Arizona, and I’m sure they’d chuckle at me describing 90 degrees as impossibly hot) and by the time I got home I was just about ruined. I’m typing this on Sunday and I still have a headache. The sun does not like me. I burn, I get heatstroke, I have such a low tolerance for hot weather. Fortunately, these awesome summer beers make it better. Which is a good thing, since it’s definitely too hot to be drinking the heavy, high gravity stouts and porters that I love so much.
