    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!

    He's been on here, and posted a half dozen, or so, time in the past few weeks.
