What are you drinking, right now? - Page 92

post #2731 of 5248

Homebrew!  and I'm not going to puree any bacon and spring peeper to add to it.

Fresh Peeper; oh yeah!  If you go to MBC, please taste some of their Saison and post up. I can't get that here.  

 

Okay, well, apparently they have MOVED to Freeport, which is also very close to me (< 20 min). Moreover, Freeport is often the most convenient locale for post-Tuesday-Night-Ride conviviality. So I need to keep my eyes open re: possibility of food there. (No way I can ride for 2 hours after work and then drink craft beer without food.) Anyway I have not had the Saison. What do they call theirs? I looked on their site and it wasn't at all obvious. Honestly I am not all that knowledgeable about beer, and while I respect all the styles, I'm slightly embarassed to say that I have pretty narrow tastes centered, broadly speaking, on traditional British pale ales. So malty high-gravity, high-residual sugar brews, many Belgians, and etc., are not things I can speak to in an informed way. Meanwhile the crabs last night WERE awesome with the Peeper. Pics coming if my wife ever gets off the desktop PC.

^^ Tony - so I'm going to be in Old Orchard Beach for a week this August with a bunch of my extended family (including some cousins who were born & raised around there) -- which local brews do I need to wash down my lobstah with?  While I'm sure my family can point me in the right direction without any problems, it's always good to get some outside advice.

I'm sure you'll be safe relying on your relatives. Remember, I'm the guy who just finished saying he didn't know a lot about beer? smile.gif  You're on the Maine coast in August eating lobster. Anything will taste pretty good if you arrange the context properly ... and it won't if you don't. 

 

If you MUST have direction, here are some thoughts: 1) Before you eat your lobster, drive into Portland and spend a couple hours at Novare Res or The Great Lost Bear and do some beer triage. This is the "real beer head" option. 2) If you are buying bottled beer, and you are buying blind, buy some Allagash White and a couple of Meyer lemons and call it good. This is the Philistine option, that will make the hard core cringe, but you will enjoy it very much nonetheless. 3) My favorite local brew on draft has long been - and remains - Gritty's Cask Bitter. Don't bother with the bottled version; it's nothing special. Go to the source, but call ahead and make sure they have the cask-conditioned version on tap. Not sure how to drink this with lobster, though. You'll have to make that a separate mission. Hope this helps.

I enjoyed this after cutting the grass yesterday.  It's suppose to be a belgian pale ale.  They nailed the Belgian part but its not much of a pale ale, but it was still an excellent beer.

 

 

 

Then with the porterhouse I cooked I enjoyed my first Firestone Walker brew.  Wow what a fantastic double IPA.  It's just a shame I can't get it in Ohio.

Follow-up pic from Saturday night. Never mind the wineglass in the background. (That was good, too, btw.)  This is what we had the MBC Peeper Ale with. Good stuff. Yes, I made more than one crab per person. And yes, I ate more than one. biggrin.gif Two more than one, as I recall. 

 

 

 

 

Earlier in the day, there had been SO many good things to choose from at the fish market, it was kind of embarrassing. I feel so sorry, sometimes, for people who live in Nebraska, or whatever. Note that in the pic with the oysters, this reflects only about a 30% of the oyster selection they had that day. Glidden Points, West Baths, and more.

We have oysters. The TwoToASack seem to be the faves.

I am now officially sorry I started posting food pics.

I am still struggling with the word 'With' on the can, as opposed to say 'For'....

I should have been more creative with our oyster varietal as well as the:

Twinings Lady Grey. 1 milk, 1 sugar. Perfect.

Hey now!

 

Robyn was going to bring some to Mother's Day, but ... I can't remember why she didn't. Sold out?? biggrin.gif

I don't think they are in season, something about months with an "r" in them.

I think that should be "months with a vowel in them"...

post #2746 of 5248
I think they are always in season, what with the great South American free range herds complimenting local varietals.

On an off but related note, those 'bully stick' dog treats are the 'meat' in the 'meat and two veg' equation (as my 13 year old son was gleefully informed when he recently decided to mock chew on one to tease the dog). With the abundance of the meat part of the equation lining pet store shelves, the veg has to go somewhere.

I just never thought it was in the beer.

It gets worse. Intrigued by meat brewing, I found this:

Brewers considering making their own cock ale should probably take extra precautions to avoid microbiological contamination of their beer.

QFT.

And this seems to justify the approach:

ENough with the bollocks

 

I'm thinking Banana Drinkie, a daiquiri or something with GIN

Someone forgot to pack the citrus juicer. Boot-binding interface worked quite well.

Lazy (and cheap) man's margarita. Lime flavored tang with cheap tequila and ice in a normal drinking glass.

I just finished a few hours of cooking, I didn't feel like going through all the work to make a real one and make more stuff to clean up.

Ignore me, I take my margaritas too seriously.

In truth, Phil nevvvvvverr forgets the juicer. I don't know what was happening, exactly, but it matched so I took a picture.

Somewhere there is a picture of a pile of juiced limes left over from Margarita night at the ABMD Ski House. 

Dare I say,  It was Epicbiggrin.gif
