Portsmouth Brewery — Portsmouth, NH

Portsmouth Brewery — Portsmouth, NH

In the last of my New England themed posts, I wanted to write about my experience at Portsmouth Brewery. The first time Tom suggested visiting his friends in NH, I googled the city to see how close it was to Portsmouth.  Though I’ve never been lucky enough to have Kate the Great, I was still really excited about the possibility of visiting this hallowed beer hall.  When I’m typically writing a post, I have to … Read entire article »

Abita Brewpub – Abita Springs, Louisiana

Opening Day: Timber Creek Tap and Table – Meadville, PA

Opening Day: Timber Creek Tap and Table – Meadville, PA

Northwestern Pennsylvania – a land of lakes, small towns, and enough wooded areas to make Smokey the Bear pretty nervous. Whenever the bustle of Washington gets to be a bit much, I take comfort in knowing that I’m still able to retreat back to this area I call home for an extended weekend. Formerly largely devoid of good sources of craft beer, this has begun to change in recent years, right in tune with the … Read entire article »
