Well, we did Harpoon Brewery, so it was about time for a post on Boston’s other big brewery, Samuel Adams. Strap in, this is a big one. Now THAT looks like a brewery. I’m going to go ahead and assume most people have heard of Sam Adams. It’s one of […]

Yet another travel series that I never seem to finish. This one tells the tales of our Milwaukee adventures in late March of 2012. We went there to do some serious drinking. Oh, and also Trevtastic got married. Yeah, some girl actually married that boy. But still, it was a […]

Drink Free or Die Part I: Smuttynose

Ugh. Cambridge, The People’s Republic of. For those of you not familiar with the area, it’s called that due to the extreme liberal-hippie-happy-friendly-environmental-more bike lanes-fewer cars-save the whales, bunnies and tsetse flies-hipster-aged college professor-drive a Prius-shop at Whole Foods-mentality. It’s like an east coast mini-San Francisco, and one of the […]

You down with CBC? Yeah, you know me

Ah, the unspoilt expanses of granite-laden New Hampshire. The Lady Friend and I were up that way to visit Maggie the Thunder Kitten of Doom, and took the long way back to Braintree, by way of Hooksett, NH. It wasn’t exactly on the way; Hooksett is past Manchester on the […]

This here is Part Two of the Grand Caliventure of November 2011. For Part 1, make the clicking to here. Hold on to your butts, this is going to be a long one. The dawn did done diddly dawned Thursday morning as JJ and her husband scurried about the apartment […]

Mini road trip! This weekend’s adventure was a trek down Route 3 to Plymouth, MA, for a tour of the Mayflower Brewery and some bar-hopping in downtown Plymouth. One of my former coworkers lives down there, and is always up for shenanigans in town, though I’m fond of saying that […]

Day two of the ‘CuseQuest happened to be my birthday. The Lady Friend woke me up in the morning with a very loving, intimate and special surprise in bed. Beers you sickos! Get your minds out of the gutter. Left to right, they were: – Peak Organic Hop Noir black […]

‘CuseQuest! Part 2: Beer Day – Dino BBQ and Middle Ages Brewery

Harpoon Brewery! A pillar of Boston brewing, to be spoken of both in hushed, reverent tones, and bellowed from the rooftops in joy with several pints coursing through your veins. The first and fiercest of the Boston brew businesses. Alongside the famed Samuel Adams Brewery, they helped to build the […]

Ok. So I’ll admit that the cocktail end of these ramblings have turned mostly beer-centric with many brewery/ brewpub tours n’ tastings. But I’m running this show, and beer is tasty, so here’s another brewery tour. Another glittering brewery frontage. Blue Hills Brewery is located in Canton, MA near the […]

There’s a Brewery in Them Thar Blue Hills

So, I’m not sure how many people noticed it, but Boston.com ran an alarming article last week (Aug 4, 2011) titled “Rule change alarms small brewers.” The article discussed the farmer-brewer licensing rule in Massachusetts. Basically, this rule allows smaller, startup breweries to be licensed as a farmer-brewery collaboration, which […]
