The Outer Limits of Beer

Sam Adams came to visit the other day, which is always liberating. Rather, I should say it was Jim Koch, the mastermind behind Samuel Adams and the Boston Brewery. He has such zeal for brewing that it's always exciting to talk beer with him. Which is what we did...sort of.

I’ve been on a bit of a Pepin kick these days. When I saw the blue label sitting on the shelf of some random shop in the area, I had to pick a couple up for review. I can’t remember the name of the shop, but I do remember the selection was limited, and the [...]

Camp Smokes

My buddies and I took our children camping this past weekend. We pulled up to a small island off the Connecticut coast and waded ashore, using a small raft to bring in the kids. We started unloading the gear while the boys and girls began playing, enjoying the water and sand.
