Debbie and I had a wonderful time at Nate and Brenda’s house celebrating Thanksgiving! I also wanted to give a ‘heads up’ to Tapistry as they gained at least one more person who appreciates their beer. Well, one of their beers, that being the Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout. Several of my family liked it, especially Adam; he liked it so much that he asked me to get him some more, and more he’ll get.
Today is the last day of November, and it’s the last day of Movember, too. Here’s my last mustache picture for one month’s growing.
Got mine! Did you get yours?
Hope every one has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
Oops! I forgot to post yesterday, even though I had it all written and ready to go. It’s up right now! Day 701
The day before Thanksgiving entails grocery shopping and spending too much money on a bunch of high-calorie-comfort-foods, and some beer, too. I got a four pack of Brewery Vivant’s Big Red Coq and a four pack of Founders’ Double Trouble, these, along with a growler and a howler of two different Home made beers, should suffice for part of the day tomorrow.
Today, though, there’s the mad dash to the local brew-pubs for some libation to ease the anxiety of preparing for Thanksgiving Day. Greenbush is going to make that a little easier with some barrel-aged brews in their annex, at least according to their Facebook Page. Tapistry is releasing their Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout today. Gotta get a taste of that! And there’s the goings-on at The Livery that I mention in yesterday’s post with which to finish the day.
Drive, eat and drink carefully…
Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday !Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday!
Btw, if you are out and about you might want to consider stopping at Greenbush for a bowl of some really wonderful clam Chowder, and a pint, of course.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I know I’m not.
It was a tough job, but I got it done (even though I will not be doing it again for quite a while); four brew-pubs in one day. I started at Arclight where I had Firelake their American Pale Ale, followed by Arcturus, which is a Red IPA. Both very good, especially the Arcturus. Also, I had a taste of their Belgian Dubbel–Sweet Apple Pie they call Santa’s Sleigh’r; not something that I would normally drink, but it did really taste like apple pie.
Much happier, I am, on this beautiful day!
Today may turn out to be a somewhat sad day for me. So, what to do I about it? Go to my favorite places and reflect, that’s what.
Beatnik Blonde is on at Tapistry so come on down and get a pint or three as it’s not too high in alcohol at 4.4%.
As of yesterday Star Chicken Shotgun was still on tap at Greenbush. Speaking of them; don’t forget to get your tickets to their Christmas Party, they go on sale tonight at 8 PM. Also, there was supposed to be an email sent out with the details on when and where to pick up the Advent Calendar-Case ‘O Beer. If you did order one and didn’t get this email then contact Greenbush at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s the pickup info:
Pick-ups will begin Friday, November 28 at 11 a.m. in the ANNEX ONLY and will continue to be available for pick up during regular annex hours (11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday).
And, now for something completely different:
