Mardi Gras, Vermonty-style

The other night, I sampled some of the Magic Hat Brewery’s Mardi Gras Ale. It was dark, with a mouthfeel and flavor almost like that of a porter, yet spicier. Another fine beer from a brewery that continues to stand out on the cluttered American micro scene.

…Mostly, I’ve spent the weekend rediscovering the pleasures of Grolsch. It’s better than Heineken, and comes in a flip-top bottle that’s oh-so satisfying to dick around with while quaffing.

In other news, Brue and fellow Beercrafter Bob Thomas have begun homebrewing again. We spent last Saturday in their basement brewery drinking Baltika 6 Porter and brewing a Munich Lager. More to come…
