Clams & Corruption in Rhode Island

I didn’t know what the Crime Town podcast was about when I downloaded it. I mean, I knew the gist. I’d read about it in some “best podcasts so far of 2017” list I read in Esquire, or Men’s Health, or CNN, one of the websites I cruise at work when I’m looking for something

Annual Post Thanksgiving Exploration

It’s become a tradition that the Saturday after Thanksgiving my friend Jacki and I go exploring new breweries.  It started two years ago when we decided to try out the then new Irving Cliff Brewery in Honesdale. I also went to the Hotel Wayne (great beer selection), and Kim’s (amazing wings) for the first time that

Stroudsburg, PA

I’ve been to Stroudsburg PA plenty of times over the years.  I had few good friends who went to ESU, and have very fond memories of attending a few parties at my one buddy’s apartment above the Sherman Theater on main street.  I’ve driven through Stroudsburg more than I’ve actually been in town, especially when

Lancaster City is Cool

I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out.  Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised

Weekly Check In- Some Breweries I’d Like to Visit

Much like hikes, books, and things to watch on Netflix, I can’t seem to keep up with all the breweries I’d like to experience. It doesn’t hurt that they’re popping up at rapid pace. There’s currently over 5,300 breweries operating in the United States. That’s insane. To give you some context, in 2012, just five

My Top Recommended Summer Beers, and a Warning About Zima

  I don’t always necessarily agree with seasonal beer drinking.  I will argue anyone who says Guinness isn’t a beach drink, will happily throw back some fruity IPA’s after a XC ski, and have been known to buy a few 4 packs of Susquehanna Brewing Company Toboggan Chocolate Doppelbock (ok, so I used to have to

Weekly Check In: A Visit to Endless Brewing

  I’ve been wanting to visit the Endless Brewing up in Susquehanna County for some time now.  My brother and dad went a year ago and liked it, and though I’m reticent to fully trust Yelp reviews, this one got no badmouthing.  The problem was always that it’s in the absolute middle of nowhere.  It

A Weekend on the Richmond VA Beer Trail

When your Saturday starts with a giant soft pretzel surrounding a mound of kielbasa and cheese, with a nice, tall hefeweizen to wash it down with, you know it’s going to be a solid weekend. I spent a weekend this past April exploring the craft beer scene in Richmond, Virginia (or #RVA, I learned, if

How to Complete a Tri-State (or larger) Bar Crawl

I generally don’t do much for Valentine’s Day, so don’t have a ton of Valentine’s Day memories, good or bad, like you would with Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Halloween.  To the chagrin of my mother, I’m perennially single, and so typically don’t really have the need to really even celebrate. I also have a healthy dose

A Sullivan County NY Beverage Tour

My friend Jacki and I have been talking about going up to Cooperstown for the longest time, and visiting Brewery Ommegang and the rest of the Cooperstown Beverage Trail. Jacki was one of my go-to brewery partners when I lived down in Lancaster, but since I’ve moved back to our motherland, and she doesn’t come
