    Able Ebenezer in Merrimack NH. Not only is the ‘Burn the Sails’ smoked IPA good, but it’s also 5 miles from John Mann’s awesome shop. Good thing he was closed (and I wasn’t driving) - had just enough liquid encouragement to make my credit cards cry...

    I’ve been quite partial to a Blackthorns Cloudy Cider recently.

    “That’s a cider Alnus!”

    “Oh sorry, wrong thread!”

    Petrus Aged Red, Product of Belgium it has cherry in it and I would think that is how a quilted Black Cherry top would taste.

    I like local craft beverages. Now in particular I’m trying to support the places I would like to be able to stay in business. Just in case there was any doubt how hard these people work for their money: I placed an order with Ernest Cider last night at 10pm, and they delivered it this afternoon. If I’d known they would come in on Easter to fill the order, I probably would have waited.

    Second Wedge is delivering on Tuesday.

    A few months ago I scored four six-packs of my favorite Australian beer, Coopers Pale Ale, at a not-too-distant Total Wine & More. Been taking my time working through it, as it had been a few years since I found it last and who knows when I'll find it again. These bottles were already a couple years old, so clearly they don't exactly fly off the shelves.

    Bottle fermented, no preservatives. I love that they have a best after date instead of a best before date. Big, smooth bready taste, yet very drinkable. Not bitter at all. This is the standard beer in South Australia. For a short while, I lived down the street from where Coopers started in Adelaide. Other than being a killer beer, I'll always love it for the memories!

    My latest from Ernest Cider. They do a special Rainbow Railroad run every year, to support the Rainbow Railroad. I love the design of this year's can.
    This makes 10 flavours I currently have at the house. They are a good, local, family owned business.

    Their ciders are delicious. This one is a simple, dry apple.
    I also have:
    Another ‘ordinary’ apple
    Apple Strudel - a bit sweeter
    Bumbleberry (Mrs favourite, think black berry and raspberry)
    Blueberry
    Winter Blush - cranberry
    Impeachment - mint and peach
    Between the sheets - a hint of bourbon
    Pamplemouse (grapefruit to non Québécois)
    Relic - think whiskey as a cider

    The last three were tiny experimental batches.

    Y’all make me want to go buy some beer!

    Unfortunately, I have a drinking problem. I don’t drink it nearly as quickly as I should. I buy beer like I’m 24, and I drink like I’m 44. I might drink 4 a month in the summer, which explains all of this Octoberfest in the fridge... And the cupboard next to it.

    There’s a parallel to guitars here, I think.
