A Weekend in Vermont!

Hello all! Stacy’s fianc√© Andy here with a little guest blog action. Last month, me and nine of my closest buds traveled up to Stowe, Vermont for a Bachelor Party weekend of craft beer, wiffle ball, video games and general debauchery. Why choose the middle of nowhere in Vermont as my Bachelor Party destination? Well,…

Beer Blog: Two Ton Brewing

After a long winter of sicknesses and snow, Andy and I decided we needed a date day. Ever since they opened last October, we’ve been wanting to check out Two Ton Brewing. Located in Kenilworth, the brewery is owned by a fellow alumnus of Montclair State, Matt Barbiere (see page 54!). We first met Matt…

Wine and Beer!

Everyone knows that I love beer. In fact, you might say that I am a bit of a snob about it. But, here’s something… I also love wine! But I am definitely not a wine snob. Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s? Sure thing! Let’s face it, I spent my college years (and several of…

Beer Review: Vegas Edition

Ah, beer. What is a vacation without some? Don’t ask me. Or Andy. We wouldn’t know the answer! As you probably know by now, Andy and I are *avid* craft beer drinkers, and always like to research local breweries when we go on vacation, and Vegas was no exception! A quick scan of Beer Advocate…

Leap Year and Craft Beer

Last weekend and Monday, we celebrated Andy’s 7th birthday. No, really! My boyfriend, Andy, is a leap year baby. His 28th birthday is really only the 7th birthday he has ever had. In honor of this big birthday, we kicked off the celebrations on Friday, 2/26, with a Craft Beer Tasting Party. I printed out…
