Since Nelson is one of the major hops-growing regions of NZ, it's not surprising that the brewer of one of our new favorite brands of beer (Mac's) is just outside Nelson. Of course, Dave required a stop for a free tasting where we discovered some more new favorites. The woman providing the samples and beer history was insistent that we know that beer is actually a very healthy drink containing much nutritional value. Apparently, it's all in the vitamin B!! Who knew??!! We'll be sure to find another brewery and check to confirm these findings. Report to follow.
Next stop: Berry picking. We ate more than we picked. Raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries were enjoyed obsessively for the next two days along with the best jam Marisa ever had! Dave doesn't believe that because he thinks his Mom's & Grandma's is of course the best.
