This weekend has been epically lazy. On Saturday, Melissa was gone all afternoon and evening, leaving me to do whatever I pleased. What did I please? I went out, bought a video game (Gran Turismo 5), and proceeded to play for about 9 hours. I also got up early this morning to make sure I got in another 4 solid hours. And besides getting out to run for the first time since October, I did virtually nothing productive…and loved every minute of it.
Now we’re killing time before the Super Bowl by watching the Kitten Bowl and the Puppy Bowl. I must say, the rules in these games are loose, at best.
While we watch the pups romp, I’m cracking open a bottle of Unity Vibration Bourbon Peach Kombucha Beer. I picked this up at Julio’s the other day because it looked so unique: Kombucha? Bourbon? Wild yeast?
Out of the gate, I already know I’m in trouble; taking a whiff I smell straight vinegar. After a couple of sips, I can’t go on. I’ve never had Kombucha, and I’m probably not going to start. My wife, on the other hand, took the glass out of my hands and is drinking the whole thing!!!! This is literally a first!
She says: “it tastes like kombucha with light beer aftertaste. I get the peach flavor, but none of the bourbon.” Surprised at the 7% ABV, she also said “I can’t taste the alcohol at all!”
Long story short, even if you don’t like beer, if you like Kombucha you might like this brew. Also note that the beer is labeled as gluten Free and vegan, giving those with a wheat allergy an interesting option.
This past weekend we spend two days in one of our favorite New England towns – Portland, Maine. We visited many of our favorite spots. If you want a REALLY good rundown of what Portland has to offer, make sure you check out my recap of our 2010 trip. Below is a short picture-based recap of this past weekend.
But FIRST, some shout-outs are in order:
Heather (@honest_pint) – It was great hanging out with you at Novare Res. Melissa and I enjoyed your company and we hope our paths cross again!
Steve – It was great chatting with you at Novare Res as well! Thanks again for the tattoo tips. Let’s stay in touch.
Carla (@beerbabe) – As always, it was a blast hanging out with you. Thanks for joining us at Great Lost Bear.
Greg over at the Bier Cellar. If you’re from the Portland or surrounding towns and you’re buying your craft beer somewhere other than the Bier Cellar, you’re missing out. Check out photos of the shop at the very end of this post.
My super hotty of a wife. We went to Portland to celebrate her birthday (HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY BABE!). There isn’t a person on the planet I’d rather travel the world with.
