Castle Island Keeper

Castle Island Keeper

Woot, woot, it’s Friday! Tonight we’re chilling at home watching movies. Tomorrow morning we’re going kayaking for the first time ever, before headed to Boston for dinner and a show. Sunday I plan on being completely lazy, goofing off with video games all day.

Tonight I’m pairing a tall boy can of Castle Island Keeper with the movie The Intern. So far the movie is pretty funny, and the beer good. After my first wild experience with Castle Island, I had big hopes for the Keeper. The beer is a 6.5% ABV American IPA, but honestly isn’t much to talk about…another juicy/citrusy IPA in a vast ocean of similar beers.

Shisa Dog Tattoo

Today I got my chest tattoo completed. Shisa dogs, done! As my artist was wrapping up, the only thing coursing through my brain was: “THANK GOD I never have to get my chest tattooed ever, ever again!” Fing miserable process, but well worth having bad-ass artwork on me forever!

If I ever needed a beer, now is the time. I usually hit a bar near my tattoo studio, but this time I decided to drive straight home. Wrong choice. Furthermore, my beer supply is once again running low.

So, I grabbed a very non-summery 14th Star Maple Breakfast Stout to drink. It’s all good though, because the beer is amazingly delicious. It’s malty through and through, and I’m surprised that I can taste significant maple flavor; as I understand it, most times maple sugar is boiled off in the brewing process, leaving little maple flavor. This beer would make an amazing breakfast beer, paired with waffles or pancakes!
