Goodwilltasting’s Summer in Review

Well it’s been fall for a little over a week now and, admittedly, I have been skirting my blogging duties for much of the summer. I apologize profusely to you, my leagues of loyal readers, and now that the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and the souls of fellow Bostonians are getting slowly crushed by the impending threat of winter, I hope to spend much more time faithfully updating my humble food/beer/manliness blog.

So what have I been up to this summer? In a word, PLENTY.

In May I had the pleasure of volunteering at the American Craft Beer Festival. It was a great time of pretzels, neon t-shirts, and of course, beer samples.  So much beer.

Probably the most interesting beer I tasted at the festival.  Indra Kunindra by Ballast Point. Stout brewed with curry spices.  Definitely different.  Definitely not drinkable.  I’m sorry. D. 

Took a few trips this summer as well. TAKE A LOOK!

Poutine is a Montreal staple. Fries, cheese curds, gravy. Comes with a referral to a cardiologist.

First time at Rising Tide in Portland, ME. Great little tasting room, and corn hole in the front!

Highly recommended- Portland Hunt and Alpine Club. Great cocktails and Scandinavian food. Match made in heaven. 

It’s been a great summer. When I’m suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder in a couple months hopefully I can look back on this post for a cheap pick me up.
