Beers on Window Sills Goes to 30 Mile Brewing Co.

30 Mile Brewing Company

If there’s one thing I love to do, it’s to visit new and unknown (at least to me) breweries. Googling around Connecticut, I found about 40 breweries, many of which I had never heard of. Before Friday, Old Saybrook’s 30 Mile Brewing Company was one of them. My wife, Jeannie, and I took a ride up and crossed it off our list. It was pretty solid!

Beers on Window Sills Goes to NEBCO

NEBCO Carpet

I was off from work this week, so I decided to finally visit one of my favorite Connecticut breweries. You might know them as the makers of Fuzzy Baby Ducks (and Double Fuzzy), as well as several other awesome beers. Yep, I’m talking about NEBCO aka the New England Brewing Company. My stay was brief, but I saw more than enough to solidify this as a super cool place to get really delicious beer. Continue reading “Beers on Window Sills Goes to NEBCO”

Beers on Window Sills Goes to Trillium: Two Hundred Thousand Trillion

Trillium Beer Company and Other Half Brewing's Two Hundred Thousand Trillion

I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading about my prosperous pilgrimage to Boston’s Trillium Brewing Company. First, there was my serendipitous sojourn to Trillium’s Fort Point retail location, which ended up being only a 12-minute walk from my hotel. Next, I told you about my auspicious adventure at the Trillium Garden on the Green, which I accidentally stumbled upon while trying to get home after a rainy walk. Today, we have the final installment of the Beers on Window Sills Goes to Trillium series; the story of how I got my hands on 12 cans of Two Hundred Thousand Trillion.

Beers on Window Sills Goes to Trillium: The Trillium Garden

As I mentioned in the first post of this BoWS Goes to Trillium series, my trip to Boston might as well have been called “a series of fortunate events.” The fact that I basically accidentally stumbled into the Trillium Garden on the Greenway is just another example of how everything was coming up Millhouse for me.

Beer Camp Around the World 2017

If you’ve been following Beers on Window Sills on Instagram, you know we’ve been powering over the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across the World 12-pack over the last six weeks. Well, We’re all done!

Brewery: Montauk Brewing Co.
Beer: Watermelon Session Ale
ABV: 4.9%
IBU: 27
Hop Varieties: Cascade and Magnum

I had a really cool experience with Montauk Brewing Co. this week, so I wanted to tell you guys all about it.

Every Thursday after work, my company graciously hosts a free bar for us in the lobby. Once we’re done with our work, we all head on down to the mezzanine level for some free wine and beer (and sodas and such for you non-drinkers). Because we’re based in New York, we usually end up with a lot of local beers as part of the offering. Did I mention it’s all free?

Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Aunt Sally: My Wife Can Drink Again!

Today on the window sill, we have the story of the woman I love, and the beer that once seemed undrinkable: The Aunt Sally, by Lagunitas Brewing Co.

There was a time when my wife, Jeannie, couldn’t drink. No, she didn’t have a drinking problem or anything like that, but physically… She couldn’t drink. Even something as simple as a glass of wine, or one beer, would send her stomach into a three-day tumult. For a woman whose friends once lovingly called her “Pub Jeannie,” when she’d go out drinking with them, this was definitely a change.

If it was only booze that caused her this discomfort, we wouldn’t have been as concerned about it (it would just be a bummer), but many different kinds of foods caused her the same problems. She could only eat small portions, and she had to avoid things like garlic, red meat, or anything really heavy, otherwise it would make her feel sick. She also got terrible heartburn and pressure. Sometimes, there seemed to be no rhyme nor reason to what food made her feel sick, but any kind of alcohol was problematic. It was bad.
