Before I start, a quick reminder. If you’re in the Boston area, be sure to enter to win a couple of tickets to the Widmer Brother’s event I posted about on Monday. Now back to your regularly scheduled post…
Wow, what a great holiday weekend. Three cookouts, one each day. I drank a ton of beer, although virtually no craft beer.
On Saturday it was Budweiser at my sister-in-laws house. Prior to this I could count on one hand how many times i had drank Budweiser proper. Sure, I had drank gallons and gallons of Bud Light over the years, but never straight-up Bud. I still prefer Bud Light over the two, but free beer is free beer…
Sunday’s party at Sean & Kerry’s house entailed a bunch of Narragansett Lager, followed by some Brooklyn Summer. The Brooklyn Summer was in cans – F.O.R. T.H.E. W.I.N!
And Monday’s party, our yearly get together with Melissa’s best friend’s family, involved a small amount of Bud Light. At 90+ degrees and muggy, even the Bud Light wasn’t feeling very tasty.
I couldn’t have hoped for the weekend to go better. I hope everyone out there had an equally awesome weekend!
Tonight I’m drinking a Nashoba Valley Dunkelweizen. It’s the only year-round beer from Nashoba that I haven’t had, so when I visited the brewery a couple months back I picked up a bottle.
Dunkelweizen is a dark wheat beer…think hefeweizen, but brown. This particular dunkelweizen is light and refreshing. It’s like drinking a hefe; it is full of bready / spicy / clove flavors. Then you get to the dark flavors – the huge caramel backbone. This is makes the beer what it is.
Chug-a-lug. So sad I didn’t buy a six-pack. Except for the summer stout, this is the best beer I’ve had from Nashoba.
