The Monday Hangover: Other drink adventures of note from the weekend. Following a trip to Curtis Liquors, I returned home with a sample pack of Mercury Brewing Ipswich Ales, including their Original Ale, Summer Ale, and IPA. I cracked an IPA (very nice, decently hoppy, but not out of control) […]

The Monday Hangover: Oct 8-9

Octoberfest season! The ol’ SquirrelFartsMail inbox started lighting up a couple weeks ago with notices of various autumnal October/Oktober festival drinking opportunities (I subscribe to quite a few drink-related newsletters). I generally avoid the larger gatherings, preferring smaller venues with easier (quicker) access to the beer. I don’t like crowds; […]

The Monday Hangover: Sept 24-25

I had a hankering for a classic movie. The Lady Friend had seen it, but long ago, and didn’t remember most of it. The 1954 Disney version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, starring James Mason (who is THE MAN), a pre-stroke Kirk Douglas, the toad-like Peter Lorre, and some […]

Rule 37: The Nautilus

Thursday. Still another day to go this week. Relief was necessary; liquid relief. A bomber. Initial thoughts were for the Brewdog Hardcore IPA, an “explicit imperial ale” at 9.2% abv. Discovered in a Stop n’ Shop up in Stratham, where I also discovered the magical “mix-your-own” six pack. Lovely. But […]

Postcard from the Floor

There’s a brewery in my hometown. If you live in Portland, Boston, Burlington, or even Syracuse, that may not be such a big deal. However, I’m from a small town in the seacoast area of New Hampshire called North Hampton. If you’ve ever heard of Hampton Beach, it’s just north […]

The Homecoming: Throwback Brewery

Today was a suck day. Just one of those days where things start off bright, shiny and happy, and then the world spreads its cheeks and drops a steamer right in your lap. Then, you stand up to push it off, and it plops onto your brand new shoes. That […]

Terrible Tuesdays Call For Some XXX

I had entered a couple photos in a local art show Friday night, so our cocktail night was a bit delayed. Lady Friend started with wine at the show, then switched over to beer for dinner at the Union Brewhouse, where we each checked two more brews off of our […]
