"We realize the influence of those closest to us only after having left their presence." Shaun Hill

Raising a glass tonight to Norma & to all those grandmothers whose warmth of spirit has touched our hearts & marked our lives in ways too innumerable to count.

"I cannot understand how anyone conscious of mortal sin can laugh or be merry." St. Thomas Aquinas

I’m certain ol’ Tommy boy would’ve changed his tune had he wet his holy whistle with Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!’s “Péché Mortel”. Deep, rich coffee notes with a velvety smooth chocolate finish bring to kind another quote, this one from “Anansi Boys” by @neilhimself: “Black as night, sweet as sin.”

Cider-making time at Clyde’s never fails to impress. Love how the smells & sights in the old mill building can instantly take me back 30+ years to my childhood visits.  (at B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill - Mystic CT)

Last night’s Lemon Cello IPA, a unique collab from @sirencraftbrew, @mikkellerbeer, & @hillfarmstead. I was nervous at first that it would be too sweet/shandy-esque; but the sharp bite from the zest kept the bitterness at the forefront. Definitely a different interpretation of the style. #collabeeration #hillfarmstead #mikkellerbeer #sirencraftbrew #latergram

In an East Coast salute to @goodbeerhunting & @intelligentsiacoffee’s #UppersAndDowners series, today’s #latergram from the holiday weekend features @beerdbrewing’s Crack-of-Noon. The brainchild of co-owner @preciousbeerdbrewing, this Espresso Amber Ale rocks one pound of espresso beans per barrel for a rich, dark roast flavor profile while maintaining a surprisingly light body.

Nothing like a little #beermail to set the world to rights after a trying day, particularly when said beer is @fiddleheadsbrewing Mastermind DIPA. #vtbeer #fiddleheadsbrewing

… but if you feel like loving me, if you got the notion, bring Friendship & Devotion.

Thoroughly enjoying this unique collab from @hillfarmstead & Luc Bim Lafontaine (formerly of Dieu du Ciel!), a juicy citrusy IPA with just a pinch of salt & touch of tart. #hillfarmstead #vtbeer #collab
