I had taken a trip to Jay NY to close up my brother’s camp that I donated stem cell to, too fight off his cancer. Well I did my best to enjoy every moment of a very nice Saturday with a stop at Olde Saratoga Brewing to see Dan and Kim, and if you know me by now I had empty growlers, three to be exact. Found out they were doing a contact brew for Fishermen’s Pumpkin Stout for Cape Ann Brewing Co it was delicious, but it was their last keg and would not fill my growler with it. I enjoyed most of my favorites and got my growlers filled with Mendocino Red Tail Ale and Oatmeal Stout along with Olde Saratoga IPA. Dan had asked me if I wanted to try a very nice IPA so I said sure, and he came back with something from the back room called Hurricane Kitty for Keegan Ales which I been and had before. It’s a much different IPA from the norm and you would have to taste to see why. Now I know they make it I will fill a growler on my next stop! By the time I got home it was 10pm, so I talked the badassbeerwife in to going to our local Four Main Street Bar and Grill to have a couple. The BBC Lost Sailor IPA and Magic Hat Howl where both very good, and the owner John had opened a bottle of Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Ale and handed me a sample which was most excellent, I will have to get one to enjoy soon. And one final note here for my stem cell brother start drinking beer it could cure you!
