The Beer Column

As a beer snob, I am horrified when I see someone drink a cheap beer when there are perfectly better alternatives at hand. To sit in a beer bar poring over a menu featuring the world’s finest beers and hear some chump order a Bud Light makes my blood boil. I can’t understand that in…

SUPER BOWL XXXVI

In case you didn’t know, the Super Bowl is on this weekend.

The Beer Column

As some of you may have experienced, the Massachusetts Blue Laws can be frustrating to those of us from out of state. In puritan tradition, they mandate that all alcohol must be sold in licensed package stores under strict guidelines. Stores have to close by 11pm Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday. These rules…

The Beer Column

To truly appreciate a favorite food or drink it is necessary to understand what it’s made of. Once you understand the ingredients and how they affect flavor and aroma, you learn to recognize which brands or varieties you enjoy the most.

Winter Beers: Of Strength and Spice

It’s beginning to look a lot like I’m behind the times. Beer columnists are supposed to write about holiday and winter beers before Christmas, when they are first released. But between the holiday parties, Christmas shopping, and a head cold, I just didn’t have the time to get it done. I did want to cover…

The Beer Column

As the New England winter creeps up on us and the days become unfairly short, the beer drinker seeks something a little more robust to help keep the cold and darkness at bay. We seek a beer that has the girth to accompany a hearty winter meal without being overpowered by the full, rich flavors….

The Beer Column

One of the greatest gifts the beer gods have given us is the brewpub. Short of making your own, it is the only place where you can get a fresh pint made in small batches with the utmost care and tenderness. While brewers in large breweries make the same old thing over and over again,…

Guinness Goes Too Far

To many beer drinkers, Guinness Stout is a familiar and reliable beer that instills a sense of comfort and cheer. A pint of Guinness is more than just a beverage; it’s an icon. Ordering one can be as much a celebration of “Irishness” as it is a request for a beer. Thanks to this image,…

Drinking in German Culture a Liter at a Time

Thousands of Oktoberfest revelers singing “Hey, hey baby, I want to know, if you’ll be my girl” and “Ein Prosit, ein Prooosit der Gemuet-lich-keit” still rings through the minds of twenty-seven EC students who celebrated Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany over the Columbus Day weekend. Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Munich every year since 1810, and…

Spring Break in The Cayman Islands

So, it all started with a body cavity search and seventeen bottles of rum. I wonder where they all went. This is the story of a few silly people, lots of beer and some sunshine. Well, they say that sun, sea, sex and surf are the way. We found it all in Grand Cayman. The…
