DOW (Drinks of the Week)

My drinking escapades began Friday night when I took the wife out for dinner to Chesapeake Inn in Maryland.  I wrote about a night I had there back in June this past summer.  Everyone knows I love that place.  This week the main beer of my focus will be from Lake Wood Brewing out of Texas.  This is the first beer in a new craft beer subscription box that I got from Craft Beer Club.  I got four different beers from two companies, 12 beers in all.  This takes away from me having to stare aimlessly at the beer aisle at my local LQ.  I can’t figure it out I just stand there like an idiot.

Brew’s, Grub, and Good Times: Local Craft Brewer’s are changing the Drinking Experience.

Over the last decade there has been an explosion of craft beer distillers opening up every where.  In Delaware it seems every other week a new one is popping up in a storage building, someones backyard, a warehouse, just about any ole place.  I personally couldn’t be more excited.  The best is that this has become a great form of entrepeneurship.  The combination of craft brewers and food trucks has changed the lanscape for hanging out and having a good time.  Craft beer distillers have an amazing impact on the local economy, plus they give locals a place they can call their own.   Continue reading “Brew’s, Grub, and Good Times: Local Craft Brewer’s are changing the Drinking Experience.”

DOW (Drinks of the Week)

You know, when you have to work the weekend it is difficult to dive into the drinks as much as you want.  Sure when I was in my early twenties and maybe 30 or 31 or last IMG_3637 (1)week I could drink a shit ton and still make it to work. (Remind me to tell you the time I slept in my car and worked the next day at the prison.  Jesus help me).   I don’t really know what happened to me but I know it takes like a fucking week to get back on my feet.  This weekend we enjoyed some bourbon ( Woodford Reserve ) some JD, and a new beer from Volunteer Brewing in Middletown Delaware.  Yes that is a Minnie Car in the background.  Lets not kid, Minnie is a bad bitch.  Back to the Beer.  This one is coming from my buddy JD who knows whose craft beers.  He picked me up crowler of the Belgian Blonde from Volunteer.

Relax It’s Sunday

With all do respect there is absolutely no way for me to FUCKING RELAX TODAY!!!!!!  The Eagles are in the Super Bowl, that’s right the Super Bowl.  Today will be filled with beers, food, and a million phone calls and texts.  Everyone will be on the edge of their seats during the game tonight.  I will spend the majority of my day wandering around waiting for the time to pass.  I have already been up since 4 this morning.  I know stupid right, but I drank a ton of beers last night and passed out early.  I apologize for nothing.  Oh and if you haven’t seen it Brian Dawkins got into the Hall of Fame.    Continue reading “Relax It’s Sunday”

Eagles vs. Patriots (Super Bowl)

Well the unthinkable  has happened and the Philadelphia Eagles have made it to the Super Bowl to face off against the New England Patriots.  The Eagles have defied all odds to make here.  They weren’t the fan favorite, they didn’t have the toughest schedule, they lost player after player including the franchise QB.  They got a back up that thought about retirement just a year prior.  Each playoff game they were doubted and made the underdogs event though they had the best record in the league.  Nick Foles was touted as a bum and wouldn’t win a playoff game.  Hell even the coach at one time was considered to be below average and unqualified.  With all of that the Eagles and their true fans stood there with their arms folded, that blue-collar stare, and calmly said F@#$ You with each passing victory.  On Feb 4th the Philadelphia Eagles and the City of Philadelphia will finally get what they truly deserve and that is the Lombardi Trophy.   Continue reading “Eagles vs. Patriots (Super Bowl)”
