Easter week we decided to go to the Outer Banks for a little family vaca. Nothing like relaxing and throwing back some great brews by the beach. For myself it was the first time I had ever been to the Outer Banks and to be honest I can’t wait to get back. We stayed in Avon and took a day trip to Ocracoke and hung out at Howard’s Pub and 1718 Brewing Company. The rest of the week contained bad ideas, more beer, and some damn good times. Onto the Beers!!!!!!
D-day once again for the man who has become an urban legend in Delaware. The tales of Tal can be heard in the far corners of Elsmere or street corners. This man, this mythological beast has tempted his fate time and time again and once again will get into the squared circle to practice the sweet science once more. How did we get here, how did we get blessed with this legend, where did he come from? The legend grows faster than the un-vaccinated measles outbreak. Like measles, we are all in danger of catching the Talabisco fever.
We recently sat down with the man the myth the legend Stefan Talabisco to talk about his upcoming fight and just a little more. He was candid and up front, check out the video below to see this first time interview.
Stefan “The Freak” Talabisco will fight again in his 2nd pro match on December 1st. He is the Co-Main event on a card full of great local talent. This Professional Boxer, Actor, Reverend, Retired Military, Competitive Eater, Dad takes to the ring one more time. He has worked hard on his fight game working with the likes of MIke Stewart and Joey Tiberi Jr. in order to notch his second career victory.
Odessa Brewfest is an amazing drinking experience that I love to go to each year. The people are great, the vendor’s rock and the brewers get to show off their amazing drinks. This year the weatherman screwed up because it was rainy and overcast all day but the good times shined through.
Well Saturday night was the night that i watched a 45 year man make his pro debut in a boxing match. You may have read a tale or two of the Freak when I was tracking his eating adventure in the Wing Bowl this past Feb. CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT TALE. Frankie feels like a local celeb and if you heard the two hundred people at the event on Saturday you would have trouble not believing that. FREAK FREAK FREAK the crowd chanted as he made his way to the ring. You could tell he was a bit nervous going into the fight but he managed to get through that. The Freak stood in his corner swaying with that anxious movement that looks like you’re trying hula hoop. DING DING the bell rang and these two men ran into each other like two rams going at it on a mountain side. Holy Christ!!!!!
Well mother nature tested my week. She tried her hardest to make this week shitty. Your not bringing me down bitch, will all your snow and shit. I had some good beer, some good food, a great party, and a daddy daughter dance. That kind of combo makes for a great week, and now that it’s Sunday I am going to kick back and relax.
16 Mile Brewery is a brewer out of Georgetown, Delaware. They have been around for close to 9 years and continue to make great beers. Repsonders Ale will be the feature for the week, but like most weeks I am sure to have some others mixed in. Repsonders will be the first of two beers from 16 Mile that I will be trying. Next week we try their Tiller Brown Ale.
Responders Ale is a light-bodied beer with 4.1% ABV ( Alcohol By Volume) and 12 IBU’s (International Bitterness Units). This is an easy-going beer that’s not too bitter. The best part of this beer is that proceeds from sales go to National Fallen Firefighters Association, so I’ll drink to that. Here’s to you 1st Responders.
Round two for Lake Wood Brewing Company. This week we are trying the Hopp-Trapp Belgian Style IPA. This is the second of the two beers that I got from Lake Wood Brewing. The Vienna Style Lager was more up my alley but this one was also an enjoyable beer. I can’t say that I will get this one again any time soon only because it was just okay. This is most likely because I am not really a big IPA guy. If you enjoy IPA’s this one may suit you well.
