Consuming Mass Quantities.... Of Beer. I Pour It??? YASS!!!
look at all these hungry birds outside my rv they're all looking for something i don't know what they're expecting they're just kind of chilling next to this truck so yeah good morning everyone for reference this video actually starts just 13 hours where my other video ended from the from the rest area and if you can't tell i do not advise any of our viewers to stay at a rest area or truck stop it's unpleasant but it does work for one night so we're getting on the road and gonna go do something totally different tonight should be a lot better well you might notice here in texas as we move a little bit farther into texas that the snow berms are gone on the side of the highway so it's definitely finally warming up and we're moving past storm ernie umi i forgot what it was called it was nasty around here but i'm gonna go check in to beaumont texas i haven't been to a harvest host location for a while it's a great boondocking resource that i don't use very much but there's a craft beer brewery that i want to go see so that's what we're heading for first and then maybe i'll unhook the car all right i'm gonna take the uh downtown the beaumont exit here gosh i'm so glad the sun's out ah it's just a beautiful day all right downtown beaumont texas all right we're turning on to wall street and okay so the brewery is off to our left right here and where this rv is at is where i am supposed to go so let me find a spot in here heck yeah i'm parked i'm doing some boondocking uh most of you have probably heard of harvest hosts i don't talk about them enough they are a wonderful company a great resource for people who like to boondock this is not some big scam company that charges you fifteen thousand dollars for a membership and then kicks you out and shuts everything down no harvest host is a family owned operation and it's meant for people that don't mind just boondocking in a parking lot however they have some 1600 farms wineries distilleries like craft local breweries that allow you to well this place actually has a really large boondocking lot across the street which is awesome they don't open until 4 p.m here so i'm gonna go check it out in a little bit i'll probably unhook the car and go explore beaumont a little bit maybe go to a few thrift stores see if i can find some mickey mouse stuff here in texas so in fact let's go inside real quick i want to show you their website real quick in case you're interested in joining and so take a look at that they have 565 wineries nationwide 470 farms 323 attractions you can add golf courses for an extra i think 30 a year and three currently 232 breweries and distilleries like i said a membership is not fifteen thousand dollars it is only seventy nine dollars a year yes you heard that right seventy nine dollars a year for up to fifty almost sixteen hundred places to boondock in the entire country and oh and that's right they actually have an app for your phone to be able to log in and look at all the different they are literally everywhere in the country folks look over here in the northeast you think i'm going to use some of these this summer my point is they're a good decent company who's trying to do something really good for people trying to save a little bit of money who don't necessarily need hookups in their rv but still want to explore the country and from time to time like i said there's some really cool attractions like the tallahassee auto museum you can stay there and then go to the auto museum they started listening to some of their members a lot more i'm one of their classic members i've actually been with them since november of 2018 i'm one of the very first that joined harvest host i was so excited to be a part of it and i'm so glad that i have been able to uh kind of help them grow as i continue to kind of share some of these locations and things and a lot of people had been asking for a while you know hey let's get some more breweries in here and distilleries some craft beer because not everybody's a wine person so like i said they have they've added one and we're at one now where you can actually uh test some of the local craft beers of beaumont texas so they really do care and listen to their members unlike some other companies but let me show you the process and how easy it is to get in touch with one of these places you might want to stay at we'll go back to the computer here since it's a little easier to see on here and where am i over here in beaumont there you click on the little it's like a little beer mug and then that opens up poor brothers brewery you open this up and then you're in the harvest host version of that which gives you some information here so there's a phone number to call and it does say that you have to request a stay from nick mclaughlin 24-hour notice is required some other information up here says that they have six total spaces uh an rb of 45 feet or more it says and pets they are pet friendly here they've also got pictures and you can do a review and post your own experience or post pictures from this so it looks like judy b said great harvest host friendly staff easy to access parking it was rainy night so we grabbed some take out pizza across the parking lot and a six pack of beer and for me it's kind of a twofer because you get to park the rv you get to unhook the car you get to actually go experience the city knowing that your rv is in a safe spot plus most of these places are attached to a winery a brewery or some kind of attraction that could make for some interesting content on youtube so i really hope to be using this a lot more in the future instead of going to rv parks and rb resorts i'll still do campgrounds especially national parks and some nice state parks and stuff like that but i'm leaning more towards boondocking now here in 2021 and moving forward because it makes me happier it's it's uh it's a lot more fun it's a lot less stressful also harvest host is also listening to us again they are just right now this month i believe actually unveiling a new test system for an online registration of these places so there's a few that are participating this just kind of a trial run to see how it works and how the system responds and if you know and everything and to see how convenient it is but you might not even have to call some of these later on you can just click it and then get instant approval with some information you do have to be a harvest host to be able to stay at these places though sometimes they ask you to give them your your card number ahead of time over the phone your member number uh others just want you to come in and check in and show them the card when you get here this place doesn't open so they wanted it over the phone and then you do have to print like a like a parking pass for your vehicle i just went to fedex office and printed two of them one for the rv window one for the car window yeah so there's poor brothers brewery and we will check that out after 4 p.m today since they're pet friendly they even have this outdoor area where i can get jax's buggy and sit out here with jax and have a cold brewski maybe enjoy my cheat day and check out some of this new york pizza and pasta later also i'm gonna unhook dirty tater tot here see if i can find a car wash and uh go explore beaumont a little bit well do i love having a car don't get me wrong i liked the motorcycle but having the car just i don't have to put on a jacket or anything just just go and i can load it up so i'm gonna go find a thrift store real quick i haven't searched for any mickey stuff for my collection and it's it's something that makes me happy it really warms my heart to be able to do so i'm gonna do it turn in here oh no the next road okay pay attention eric yeah i'm just gonna go see if i can find anything fun and stuff that doesn't take up a whole lot of space for the collection now i'm in that phase where like i have a lot of big stuff let's get like smaller stuff don't need any more blankets or anything to drape over walls or anything so i'm so happy to have this car i can't i just can't stop smiling i do miss my motorcycle though all right let's check this one out yeah this is a really big store oh awesome awesome possum tater tot parking right there that's what that is yeah it's hit and miss sometimes sometimes i find like three or four things sometimes it's just not that's a big store i didn't find one single item in the entire store that had mickey mouse on it so you know but now i'm in texas and my buddy josh is down here probably stealing everything right in front of me so good luck eric and i i actually tried to find some swap meets and flea markets it's midweek so there's nothing going on that's all right i'll hit one more and then we'll head back to the rv and get some lunch yeah this is another really big texas goodwill huge store i better find something something i still can't believe that as big as this store is i mean i have scoured this i just wanted to point this out i did literally find one thing that has a mickey on it so mickey still does exist but i mean this store was huge and that was all i found it's crazy it's it's just cleaned out in texas i am happy to see that the place i'm staying in tonight beaumont texas is a little quirky their fire station museum here has these little uh dalmatian painted fire hydrants and not only is beaumont texas known for the world's largest fire hydrant but also the world's largest working fire hydrant that's right yeah this sucker actually pumps water how funny would it be if that's actually dog pee all around the base of this thing it's probably not but some of these texas towns are really unique and it seems like every time i come back you can always find something that's larger than life in texas there's a bronze statue out here in front too it is the official state of texas firefighter memorial here in beaumont texas thanks for your service guys you guys rock all right the brewery opens in two out that's such a hard word for me to say brewery i know what a brewer is but a brewery say a slow eric the brewery opens in two hours let's go back and check out that new york style pizza place uh the pizza place actually asked me to move the rv they share the lot with poor brothers brewing and i probably would have known that if i'd gone in there because they're not open yet but they asked me to move over so i went ahead and moved over they seemed pretty popular so i'm looking forward to getting some pizza new york pizza and pasta i feel like i'm in new york wait a minute oh my i definitely feel like permanent work all right i got my 10 inch meat lover special here it's not necessarily thin crust but it does get thinner the bigger the pizza size you get i just got the 10 inch and uh coke zero to go with that's going to complement it really well oh my gosh guys you wouldn't like any of this i know the chefs don't like it if you put extra stuff on it before you've tried it but i like my parmesan cheese so i'm gonna put some parmesan cheese on there throw it on the plate that's good all right so poor brothers brewery here in downtown beaumont texas let's go check it out we're early oh we got more people pulling in so inside they may not be doing things as they normally do it but this is a little unique i mean i've never done anything like this here at uh fort brothers brewery you get a beer card that's right a beer card and a cup and we get to go self-serve over here and try different beers so as you can see up here they got all the uh different kinds that they've got there and then you can swipe your card your pour card then you get the beer tabs there i'm looking at uh this orange chocolate stout sounds good part of our valentine's day special box oh so it's a valentine reject all right all right anyway it's rfid so it doesn't name pops feel and then this does it will cut off at eight ounces it is a half eight ounces okay interesting place right so that's orange chocolate oh i'm just gonna just get through just that is really tasty like you know they also do growlers and they got some t-shirts here some stickers and and i see can koozies there they are also pet friendly in here so jack's to come in they've all they've got the outdoor spot but it's been cold in texas so i don't think it's going to be too popular out there tonight but we'll see that orange chocolate was ridiculous guys i wish they bottled that one i don't know how to ask them maybe they do just get a growler then huh we'll see i'm gonna clear my palette with their patty bees they're one of their first ones here just a golden ale kind of like a fancy bud light i think tastier than bud light actually yeah look i know i'm the only one here right now this is actually a really happening place they have live music here as well they got cornhole competitions they're they're part of the uh street drinking gang you know from pub to pub but this is one of only uh four breweries in this area of beaumont there's a lot of bars but they brew everything right here in this location right now so i don't know i just wanted to be out here i kind of want to hang out with jax later but they are pet friendly in here i just wanted to just wanted to try out a few of these maybe i'll come back we've now now got a total of four rvs over there they're expecting six tonight there are six scheduled people from harvest so supposed to be here so we shall see all right one more before i go back to the rv and check in on jax trying the hooligan which is their one one of their newer ones one of their four staples that they have they have it in a can over there but i don't think anything can beat that orange chocolate that's tasty good that's tasty good also in case you're interested you can order food from the new york pizza and pasta place across the street they'll bring it right here while you're here at the brew house there's also dooley's barbecue and grill they opened up here recently but uh yeah you can get pizza and get your pour on yeah so the local two alarm pilsner here is actually made and sponsored and worked with the local fire department here as well as the placeholder here is also they're working with the local police department here to work on that doesn't have a name yet but they're trying now i may try that one out later also fantastical i'm gonna come back tonight when the place uh comes back alive i actually did just buy one of their cards so i have one of their poor me cards i'm gonna hot glue a magnet on there so i actually have a magnet from this place but i want to see how jax is doing a little bit and then maybe jax and i'll go back in later since they're pet friendly sound good all right no they didn't have any kitty beer well i know you're old enough to drink but they didn't have any actual kitty beer no just adult beer

by you'll just bite them like you bite cords you'll just bite them okay technically some cats probably could get out some of these parts i wouldn't trust small small dogs or cats necessarily because they might be able to get under that part right there but jax is pretty good boy what do you smell what do you smell right there is there weird smells okay he comes running he's a good boy since i get
