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!

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”
This past Saturday, I celebrated my birthday in the most fun way I could think of: a trip to Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, CT. I had a blast there with my friends and family, and I’m hoping you guys read this and decide to take a trip there, too. Continue reading “Beers on Window Sills Goes to Two Roads Brewing Company”
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.

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. Continue reading “Beers on Window Sills Goes to Trillium: The Trillium Garden”
When you love good beer, and put good energy into the world, sometimes fortune smiles upon you. That’s what I learned from my trip to Trillium Brewing Company this week. A lot of really cool stuff happened over the few days I was in and around the brewery, so I’m going to break them down over a few posts. Let’s start with my first trip to the retail store. Continue reading “Beers on Window Sills Goes to Trillium Brewing Company, Part I”
Brewery: Montauk Brewing Co.
Beer: Watermelon Session Ale
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? Continue reading “An Evening with Montauk Brewing Co., and the Watermelon Session Ale”
As an up-and-coming beer connoisseur, blogger and Instagrammer, one of the things I some day wish to accomplish is to have relationships with breweries all over the country. I’ve joked with my wife that I would consider this entire endeavor a success if some day just one brewery sends me a free beer to drink, photograph and write about. While I’m not quite there yet, I did have a really pleasant experience with one of the breweries whose beer I put on the windowsill, and I think it makes for a pretty good story.
Here’s what went down. The other night, I photographed and reviewed today’s windowsill inhabitant, the Super Bad–a double IPA from Brooklyn’s Interboro Spirits & Ales. As part of my writeup, I did a brief tongue-in-cheek anti-hipster rant related to the beer’s chosen home base of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which is basically hipster central in New York City.
