Beer’d Brewing Co. – Stonington, CT

So, we can officially call this Stella storm a bust, right? At least in my area, it snowed all day then got warm enough to rain and basically clear off the road. Shouldn’t complain though, as I was “working from home” I was able to catch up on the new season of Always Sunny. All I have to say is the waterpark one was the best, the Making a Murderer one was incredibly well done, and WTF Dennis!! I also fiddled with the site a bit too (woo Insta & FB widgets!). Super productive as you can see. It’s a good thing no one else seemed to want to do any work today either!

Today, we make one more stop in Connecticut to Beer’d Brewing, a place with a logo and name that a man with fantastic facial hair such as myself can truly appreciate.

Revival Brewing Co. – Cranston, RI

This weekend I got a little redemption. After a weekend were I was promised brunch foods and soundly disappointed, there was an itch to scratch. So when I found out my originally planned destination wasn’t open on Sundays, the executive decision was made to head down to Brutopia, home of Revival Brewing Co. in Cranston. Having come to Revival in the past, I knew eating at the restaurant was a must and luckily for us, they serve brunch on Sundays! You really don’t know how much you want brunch nachos until you are told there are brunch nachos. No disappointment with the food this Sunday!

But this is a beer blog, so onto why you’re really here!

Crooked Current Brewery – Pawtucket, RI

 

I can’t lie, in my early to mid 20’s I hated Rhode Island. Every time I went to a bar in the Providence area, there seemed to be this snotty hipster vibe that made me wish explosive bowel issues on all of its flannel shirted inhabitants. Yea, it was that bad. As time has gone by and I’ve explored more, there are now more places that I enjoy in Rhode Island than don’t. Either I was going to the wrong places (likely), the scene down there has chilled out a bit (it’s possible), or I have grown up a bit (unlikely, although I will toss on a flannel shirt on the rare occasion).

With that trip down memory lane outta the way, I found myself in the lovely city of Pawtucket this past weekend at the self-proclaimed, and most likely accurate, “smallest brewery in the smallest state” Crooked Current. Look for the “Brewery” sandwich-board sign on the side of the road, or you may miss it!

Also, check out the Esquire article IS IT POSSIBLE TO DRINK AT EVERY SINGLE BREWERY IN ONE STATE IN JUST ONE DAY?. It’s a journey through RI that I would like to embark on myself one day…for purely journalistic reasons, of course.

To the guide!

Bone Up Brewing – Everett, 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…

Schilling Beer Co. – Littleton, NH

On our trip to NH, I had my sights set on visiting only one brewery. Woodstock Inn was meant to be my one concession on what was otherwise going to be a more romantic weekend. Luckily, I know the way to my ladies heart is through food, and when you tell her there’s a brewery on the drive up that also serves a chicken maple bacon pizza, it’s game on! With that being said we found our way to Schilling Beer Co. in Littleton. Also, big thank you to Renee from Brew NH for the suggestion!

To the brew review!

Woodstock Inn Brewery – North Woodstock, NH

For someone who doesn’t ski or snowboard, spending some time in the White Mountains during the winter might not seem worth the trouble. Not going to lie, the wall of white out conditions I hit driving through Franconia Notch Parkway had me wondering that myself. But, there were breweries to visit (and an ice castle to explore), so weather be damned, we got to our hotel and had ourselves a ski town weekend.

Onto the brew review!
