The week a buddy came through big time bringing me 4 unique brews from the Saratoga area. With a high recommendation from Chris, I tried R.S Taylor and Sons Golden Ale. Great call, Great Beer, Cheers!!!!!
I am currently drinking a tall glass of chocolate milk while I write this post. No seriously it is good as shit. Yeah some days I am a child, well most days. Whatever. Enough of the chocolate milk talk and onto our second installment from the Rusty Rail Brewing Company. We in enjoyed the Blue Collar Blonde Ale which was much better than the Peanut Butter Hefe we had two weeks ago (Fools Gold). If your ever in Mifflinburg, PA stop in and check these guys out.
Hell to the Yeah!!!!! Dude what a time to be alive with one brewery after another opening up these days. Saturday we finally got to visit Midnight Oil Brewing Company. Click the blue link to check them out. I had heard a lot of great things and finally headed over to check them our for myself. This is a brewery that is young, hungry, and not afraid to put in the hard work.
This week we are trying Straight to Ale Brewing Company’s “He Ain’t Hefe.” These guys were founded in 09 and are located in Huntsville, Alabama. My buddy Mike highly recommends stopping there if you are driving through. They are housed in a vacant middle school where they have changed the beer game in Alabama. Thanks for making great brews boys.
Oh boy another great week in the books. We ate, we drank, we hung out, and just had a good ass time. We didn’t travel at all this week but we had some folks come over a couple of times. All in all another great week down.
This weeks featured brew is River Horse Brewing Company’s Roly Poly.
Style: Czech-Style Pilsner
River Horse brewery is located in the wonderful state of New Jersey. I hope you could hear the sarcasm in that first sentence. Go check their site out to see a little brew history on why they choose the Hippo, it’s pretty cool. This place originally started in 95 and got a revamp in 07. They make a wide variety of brews and this was the first for me to try. I would say this was an average brew that didn’t blow me away. Its one of those beers that I can just keep in the garage fridge. It had good color and decent flavor. I have another brew from them that we will be trying in two weeks. So look for that, it’s an Amber Ale.
DRINKS OF THE WEEK, DRINKS OF THE WEEK ,Drinka;l of the dweek Daba Daba Dopa Peak.
Sorry I started that chant while a bit hammered. Now that we have sobered up a bit let’s get to the brews. This week’s featured beer is Polestar Pilsner from Left Hand Brewing Company. These guys have been around since 1993 from Colorado. Head over to their site and read the history it’s pretty cool.
Wow what a whirlwind week this was. Monday was a difficult day as we lost one of the pillars of my wife’s family, it of course snowed again despite all my efforts to get mother nature to chill out, and we drank a little bit of beer. Here’s to another week down.
Featured this week is one last one from 16 Mile Brewing Company. This week we went with the Brown Tiller. 6.1% ABV and 13 IBU’s which gives you that fall beer flavor. This came at a good time because that bitch Mother Nature decided to drop a damn Nor Easter on us. She needs to knock this shit off. Some one needs to get her a man to occupy her time so she can stop giving us weird ass weather.
Tiller Brown has nice color and a smooth flavor. This English Brown ale is delicious and deserves a spot in the Garage Fridge. I don’t normally go with beer like this but like I said earlier it came at the right time. I sat an enjoyed this full bodied beer while listening to some easy going music and reading. I encourage you to pick some up.
Holy Shit I had a lot of drinks this week. From Orange crushes, Jameson and Ginger, to St. Bernarbus Wit, and Brother Thelonious. A battle of the holy beers, with St. Bernarbus Wit easily coming out on top. That was a damn good beer. I’ll try to list all of them in some order but there is a good chance I am going to screw this post up. The biggest reason is that I am drinking now so we will just go with whatever my fat ass hands can type.
I came into this week having picked up two beers that I would try but being on vacation I clearly have had far more than that. Shock Top and Cage Radler have been my go to beers so far. Two easy drinking summer beers. These are the guys I would knock down while relaxing on the screened in porch here at the rental just talking about how relaxing this is and that we will make it an annual tradition.
Brother Thelonious and St. Bernarbus we two very different beers with the St. Bernarbus coming out on top. This was a sweet beer and I think that it just fit in a bit better for the setting I was in. I don’t match my beers with my food but with the good times I am having. Summer brings out more of the sweeter beers like the Wits. So in good fashion I will be picking this one up again. I highly suggest it ro all.
Enjoying Dewey is easy all you have to do is show up and a party is going to break out. Each turn you take there is a place that is offering great drinks and great times. This week there have been five places that I have enjoyed and I think you will all enjoy them as well.
#1. This is a no brainer and most reading this are going to say no shit but The Starboard is one of the greatest bars ever created by the beach gods. I don’t believe this was built by man it is to mythical and to amazing to have been the creation of a mere mortal.
#2. Listen if you want to relax, people watch, and enjoy some amazing beers you have to stop into the Dewey Beer Company. I had three beers from there and bought up some swag, the buzz forced me to do it. The beers in ranking order from Dewey Beer Company would be #1 Citra Wit #2 Social Kolsch #3 Summer Saison. All awesome beers.
#4 Surf Side Bar is a great pit stop for some good drinks and fun times. On a walk from Dewey Town Hall I popped in just to grab a Sam’s Summer Ale to take the heat off. They look small from the outside but the bar is deep and the good times are even deeper.
#5 Paradise Grill is off the charts fun. Look this place is huge, has the best atmosphere for the family. This place is bayside so it will either take a bit of a drive to get there, or my preferred method a night boat trip where you can dock at the place. They have plenty of beers decent food and some good bands that play.
This week is slowing down and we are preparing to head into week #2 of this vacation. Sunday you can catch me day drinking at the The Star Board stop in grab a selfie and a beer.
Never Drink Alone
See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.
