Lazy Horse Brewing & Winery is located near the small town of Ohiowa, Nebraska. Starting out as a winery, Lazy Horse then added craft beer which has taken off like a rocket! Owners Jim & Julie Stutzman have a beautiful ranch that you can view from the patio of the taproom. Looking for a nice, relaxing day? I recommend making a trip to Lazy Horse. For more information check out my blog on Lazy Horse.
So I guess you could say that Joe is my alter ego. A fun loving guy that enjoys coffee and craft beer. When you put the two together, then Joe's day has been made. Joe loves the story behind the scene when it comes to craft beer.
The craft beer explosion over the last several years has been fun to follow. I enjoy finding a new brew to try. Beyond the great beers though, lies the incredible stories of the people who have started the craft breweries. I began a few years ago to take as many tours as I could with the breweries in Nebraska. Each occasion was so amazing learning more about the passion behind the craft. Some of the most fascinating conversations occurred with the owners and brew masters learning how they got started and where there journey has taken them.
I hope to share some of those experiences with you and along the way maybe talk about some of the things I have learned about the great beverages that are being brewed today. Looking forward to getting started telling some of my stories. In the meantime if you want to track the Life of Joe Java-Stout, check him (me) out on Twitter @JoeJavaStout.
It is so much fun to see someone wearing a Joe t-shirt that I decided to add segment on this. There was a recent sighting of a Joe t-shirt in Daytona Beach, Florida. Jeff loves to ride motorcycles with his brother Ron and taking vacations with his better half Lisa. Jeff runs a local technology managed services company called On the Edge Technology. They specialize in computer repair and networking, security cameras, Voice Over IP, and many other services.
If your looking for a great place to stay in North Platte, Nebraska near the awesome brewery - Pals Brewing Company then I have the place for you.
