    Happy Sol brings much-needed sunshine to Maine

    I recently went on a trip to Cedar City Utah, where I spent four days in sunny, summer-like weather. I even got a bit of a sunburn when I forgot to re-apply my sunscreen on the second day. Read on

    Nothing missing in Omission Lager & Pale Ale

    I consider myself to be very lucky not to be affected by any kind of gluten sensitivity. Many of the people that I know, however, do have either a gluten allergy, Celiac disease, or some other medical reason that gluten negatively affects them. Read on

    Baxter's Cure for Sweltering Summers

    While it's only spring, and our weather bounces back and forth from summer-like to "wait, I thought this was supposed to be spring, not winter" it's a good time to taste the landscape of beer out there and dream about the upcoming season. Read on

    If you've ever visited southern California or the Pacific Northwest, the idea of food trucks would be just part of your consciousness. Walking around any decently sized city, near parks and sidled up to breweries, food trucks are just a part of the culture. Read on

    The best kinds of bitterness in Bunker Brewing's 122 Coffee IPA

    Now, before you spit out your coffee (or beer) when you hear the terms "coffee" and "IPA" in the same beer name, this perhaps isn't such an insane idea.

    Happy Birthday – Oxbow Brewing Company's Freestyle #30

    When I was young, and searching for something I'd lost, my mom would suggest that I stop looking for it. "It is only when you stop that you'll realize where it is," she'd say.

    The freedom to fill – LD 1082

    Imagine walking into your favorite beer store. Maybe it's Bier Cellar on Forest Avenue, perhaps it's a little farther down the road at RSVP Beverage, or in the Old Port at Maine Beer and Beverage Company.

    You may know Lunch, but do you know MO?

    As much as I do enjoy Lunch, I want to tell you about another beer by Maine Beer Company that's recently won my heart - MO. Named as a nod to brewer Daniel Kleban's twins Madeline and Oliver - this one is not an IPA but instead an American Pale Ale, and hasn't reached the level of national fame that Lunch has. Read on
