Thimble Island Brewing Company – Branford, CT

You know, back in January when I had the brilliant idea to make a fun little beer blog, I never realized that it could actually turn into work. Why didn’t any of you other bloggers out there warn me!? I’m taking this back to just being more fun and less formal. No more schedule or format and a lot more cursing!

So let get straight fuckin’ to it, shall we!? I drove into Branford, CT and stopped into two spots this weekend. Lets start with Thimble Island Brewing!

Sons of Liberty Spirits – South Kingstown, RI

Howdy Folks! This week I want to open the floor to you savages. I’m heading to Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, most likely all by the end of this month. Since most of them are foreign territories (except NH and parts of CT), I’m looking for some suggestions as to what brewery I should be headed next. So comment on here, Facebook, Instagram or email me nebrewguide@gmail.com and give me a reason to visit!

So let’s wrap up the Kingston/Kingstown trip from last week with a stop into Sons of Liberty Spirits…because they have beer too!

Proclamation Ale Company – West Kingston, RI

Tonight’s the NFL draft and the Patriot’s currently have no picks until Saturday. We don’t have to really care about the draft at all for two days but I will say, the best part of the draft is watching that one presumed high 1st round draft pick slide into the 2nd. Especially if he went they are at the draft. Nothing is more sad/amusing to me than the sit through the whole first round, have to come back for a second day in a much emptier waiting room and after all that, have to play for the Jets. Looking at you Geno Smith. Now that’s drama worth watching!

After stuffing our faceholes full of donuts over at Whalers on Sunday, we decided to make a day of it and see what else was in the area (After all, donuts are always a nice way to set the foundation for some day drinking.). So, we took a nice 15 minute drive over to Proclamation to see what’s up over there.

Whalers Brewing Company – South Kingstown, RI

During the work week, I’m really a pretty healthy guy. I stick to mostly a “Slow Carb” style diet popularized by Tim Ferriss, one of my two internet life coaches (Joe Rogan being the other). The reason I chose follow this diet was easy, it allows you to be an absolute pig for one day a week. It makes days like the Donuts and Drafts event I attended on Sunday not hurt my girlish figure as much! Gotta keep this temple tight!

And that’s where we start the week. Here’s what to expect from Whalers Brewing, minus the donuts, you missed that boat!

Dorchester Brewing Company – Dorchester, MA

I was starting up the laptop, fully prepared for a Game 3 of disappointment. It was already 3 – 0. I figured the game would make for background noise as I prepare my post for Tuesday. Then Acciari got the tip in. Then Backes makes the goal off Bobby Ryan’s complete fail to wrangle the puck. Then Pastrnak scores on the powerplay and here I am, finally typing during the second intermission.

Before the third starts, let me tell you about Dorchester Brewing!

Mystic Brewery – Chelsea, MA

Game 1 in the books, and the Bruins pulled out a win. It didn’t look pretty, especially with zero shots on goal in the 2nd, but the timely goals by Vatrano and Marchand in the 3rd gave the B’s the W. Most importantly, this kid McAvoy looks good! It’s his first game in the NHL and he played top pairing minutes without any real mistakes. Good to know losing Krug and Carlo indefinitely won’t be as big of a loss as it should be.

Hope you’re prepared for all kinds of fun Bruins commentary if they keep winning. Could be a quite a run!

Today we venture just north of Boston to Chelsea and hit up Mystic Brewing!

Bucket Brewery – Pawtucket, RI

Love the news that was bouncing around that Marshawn Lynch has “privately discussed” joining the Patriots if any deal with the Raiders falls through. I don’t care that he’s been out for a year, he’d still be a harder runner than Blount and he hates talking to the media. Sounds like the perfect Patriots player to me. How great would it be to see him finally have a nice Superbowl winning 1 yard touchdown?

We’re splitting time this week in RI and MA. Off to the Bucket we go for round 1!

Old Colony Brewing – Whitman, MA

This weekend marks the beginning of my favorite time of the year: obstacle race season! If you happened take a peek at my bio page, you may have noticed a couple of pictures of me jumping over fire and being generally muddy. Yea, I’m one of those “stupid” folks. I’m even part of a larger organization of people who are equally as crazy called the New England Spahtens. If you happen to race yourself, make sure to say hello! We’re generally very friendly if not slightly inappropriate. I’d also hate to prove the research wrong and start being lazy since Craft Beer Drinkers Are Healthier than Non-Craft.

Today we head to Whitman, MA (Where’s that? Exactly!) for Old Colony Brewing. Continue reading “Old Colony Brewing – Whitman, MA”

Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing – Framingham, MA

Welcome to the first of your newly scheduled “Tuesday Brewsday” guide! I promise that will be the last time I ever use that phrase, and yes I feel slightly douchey for doing it.

This switch to Tuesdays came at the perfect time, since Sunday night was Wrestlemania and was obviously too preoccupied to write. Now, I don’t what wrestling much anymore, those days left with Stone Cold Steve Austin, but I’ll watch the hell out of Mania. Last night’s show was pretty decent, with the Undertaker finally hanging them up by piling his dirty laundry in the middle of the ring and the Hardy Boys coming back as surprise entrants into the 4 way tag team ladder match, but man do I miss that Attitude era. Really need to bring back the blood and sexual situations that once made it great! It’s almost too watered down and predictable now.  We’ll probably never see an 80 year-old woman give birth to a rubber hand again, and that’s a damn shame.

Let’s continue our way around MA this week, with a stop into Exhibit ‘A’.

Barrel House Z – Weymouth, MA

Have you all caught the new trailer for Spiderman: Homecoming yet? I’m far too excited about Peter Parker finally being a part of the Marvel Universe. It’s about time, the last 3 Spidey movies that Sony put out stunk worse than a homeless mans taint. A top to bottom makeover was absolutely in order. Marvel is setting up for another great year, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok also dropping, I’m so ready to fanboy out this summer. Also, Netflix just released Iron Fist, and apparently a lot of online critics don’t seem to like it. I’m most of the way through and while it’s not as good as Daredevil or Luke Cage, I’ve been enjoying the ride. So if your normally into the Netflix shows, give it a watch. Don’t listen to the people online and their fair obvious biases as to why they dislike it.

Now that Bobby’s Marvel minute is over, lets take a look at Barrel House Z.
