One of us a hardcore beer lover who gazes as lovingly at a fresh glass of ice cold Belgian White Ale, as one may imagine other people gaze into their newborn's faces.
The other? More of a wine lover BUT learning more and more to appreciate how outstanding good beer can be.
One Misson: Explore the breweries and brewpubs of New England, sampling beer and pairing it with food and blogging all the way.
It started last fall, we needed a weekend away. Adam had always wanted to visit the Longtrail Brewery, which so happens to be located a stone's throw from Woodstock, VT one of the cutest towns ever. So we made a weekend of it, spending a good amount of time at the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners, VT and the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT. And a few months later the ale trail beckoned again and we went to Portland for the weekend to check out Shipyard and Gritty McDuffs. And then our most recent trip which will be Portsmouth, NH to check out Smuttynose and Red Hook.
There are so many fantastic breweries, so close to us. It's an ideal road trip, a fun adventure and let's face it, a cheap way to drink (many breweries offer free tours AND free tastings). This blog is hopefully a way to chronicle our brew-trips and offer tips on where to go, where to stay, what to drink and what to eat it with. We'll throw in some info about our favorite new brews and standard brew pubs as well.Cheers!
