Happy Brew Year

Happy 2013!!!

As some of you know, last summer we moved from New Orleans to New England. So here we are.  Surprisingly, there are quite a few breweries in these here parts. Tons from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.

 

I still have yet to taste what many claim as one of the best beers in the world (no, NOT Westvleteren…though that is also one of the best in the world!): The Alchemist’s Heady Topper

 It is from Vermont, so I will get it one day…..

For now, I’m sampling what I’ve got access to locally. The other day, while a friend was visiting, we visited Worcester, MA.  So of course I researched beer stores and found Mass Liquors. Here’s what I picked up:

Had any of these? They are ALL new to me, except the first one on the top left, which I was lucky enough to be given by Polly Watts of The Avenue Pub in New Orleans (Thank you, Polly!!).

Guess what my friend from Long Island brought me?

That winter ale is pretty high alcohol, but quite tasty! Thanks, Bill!

On another note…..our basement is finished and I still have to do my “beer” decor. Here are a bunch of coasters I’ve collected. Maybe I’ll put them in a book. What about bottle caps? I was thinking of a piece of sheet metal with magnets attached to the backs of the caps. Also once scanned in a ton of beer labels. Thoughts?

Cheers!
