We’re back! A little vacation and I’m ready to give right into it. We even have a nice little back up of posting, so you’ll be getting a bunch of new posts coming up!
Quick note, I attended the Brew at the Zoo event at Roger Williams Park Zoo on Saturday and although it seemed to be quite oversold (far too long of lines at every table) it was an overall well done event with a lot of cool folks to chat with from a bunch of great breweries. I’d like for them to sell about 50-100 fewer tickets next go around though, so maybe I could spend some time checking out the animals instead of waiting for the next tasters.
Now let’s get down to business, let me tell you about Mayflower Brewing.

This weekend I was quite busy doing fitness with the NE Spahten Ninjas at Ragnar Trail until Saturday, then sleeping/recovering most of Sunday. I didn’t spend my weekend in a taproom like I usually tend to (Although I did plenty of drinking, which you would have seen on my Instagram). I did notice that the new taproom at Castle Island had opened though, and luckily they’re open on Mondays and I’m on vacation this week. Let’s dig in.

After a short hiatus due to events that weren’t brewery related, we’re back! I know you’ve all been eagerly waiting!
I’ve been off on “let use up PTO before I lose it” this week, so I searched out for a brewery that was open on a Tuesday. It’s pretty damn hard to find! Luckily, a little trip down the Cape and I found myself Cape Cod Beer, because on the Cape no one has to actually work the next day. Hooray for vacation destinations, amirite?! Now, let’s dive on in!

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.

If there is anything my opinion should be trusted on aside from brews, it should be movies. On Friday night I went and saw Logan, it was excellent. The action was great as you would expect from a Marvel movie, but the drama and the acting were fantastic. Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and even that little girl who played Laura/ X-23 all knocked it out of the park. Go check it out, you’ll enjoy the hell out of it.
Also, prior to the movie there was a teaser for Deadpool 2, which is available online. Watch it. It’s damn funny.
With that I bring you a guide to Trillium, the superb brewery in Canton, MA!

Does anyone else miss football as much as me? I was out this Sunday in Cambridge at World of Beers (didn’t know it was a chain until I looked it up now) and while we had a good time playing some board games, perusing the massive list of available beers (I went with Sip of Sunshine, as recommended on Friday’s Flight Plan) and eating brunch food, I couldn’t help but look at one of their many TV’s and wish it was literally any two NFL teams playing. Instead, all the TV’s had were college basketball (not much of a basketball fan), spring training baseball *yawn* and NASCAR, which is never fun. I’d take a Browns/Jaguars week 4 match-up over that any day. They should have a Bruins game every Sunday at 1 to give me something to still glance at between bites.
Anyway, prior to World of Beers we stopped in on the taproom I’ve been to the most, Downeast Cider. I’m going to let you know why you should frequent it often as well!

Sunday was really a day that ended up being a day where original brew plans failed. Luckily both times I was able to switch on the fly and everything worked out. The morning was spent dominating the ping-pong table at Revival, and at night I got to make a first time visit to Cambridge Brewing Company. Pro tip for all of you out there, don’t forget that if you have a Monday off, there are probably a lot of others that do too. And they are going to want to go out and drink as well. Maybe try to plan your night accordingly unlike certain beer bloggers.
Anywho, let’s get to it… Continue reading “Cambridge Brewing Co. – Cambridge, MA”
So…how about that game, eh? If you can say that you thought the Pats were going to win that game, I call bullshit. Just another astounding credit to the Patriots organization.
Now that the roller coaster of this past Super Bowl weekend is over, I finally have some time to pay homage to one of the breweries I frequent the most. It’s one that is fast gaining popularity, and rightfully so, Bone Up Brewing! So, let’s dig in…
