2015 and another new fresh start

April 3, 2015

I’ll say it, it’s hard for me to keep up with this, as evidenced from the multiple years between posts. But no more, a clean fresh starts and plenty of time to do more with this. We are going to take over the world! Well, maybe just a few more beers at this point.

There is a lot to catch up on. Since the last post, I have changed jobs, married,  moved, bought a house, bought a new car, become the father to the best furbabe I know…and delved into the world of what i like to call, Epic IPAs. Thanks Dan P. for that moniker.

A few close friends at work first mentioned a local offering I had never even heard of – Gandhi Bot. It’s a super juicy DIPA from New England Brewing and it quickly became a favorite. Thus, the door was open, and it hasn’t swung shut yet on my love for the hop.

Gandhi usher in many others, the Holy Grail heady Topper from the Alchemist in Vermont, busting with hop resin and piney goodness, to Pliny the elder, Russian River’s offering from the west and Topper’s closest rival to best DIPA out there. Then came Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine, which recently became available in cans in CT as it is being brewed by Two Roads in Stratford. A new competitor busted into my area of the state when Captain’s Daughter from Grey Sail became accessible. This one is gull of mango, grapefruit and hoppy awesomeness.

My newest favorite, however, has to be Julius, an awesome IPA from Treehouse in Monson, Mass. These guys now the pale ale and IPA/DIPA game better than most I have tried and are doing an awesome job cranking out brews. Julius is the flagship, and has now become available in cans. It’s a trick to get it, as the brewery has become inundated with hop hunters.

My intent here is simple again, to give all my readers a view into the world of beer and food and our new life with the pup. I;ll add some pictures now and then when a new beer is reviewed, a burger or dish made, or when the dog does something hilarious. Below are a few shots of what’s been going on.  For now, enjoy the update, there is more to come!
