Don't look out the window in Maine. You won't be cheered by what you see. So let's keep it indoors.
Marchin made some home brew, for the first time, over the last month or so. It was a crafted lager. Last Sunday, after getting home from the parade, it was sampling time. I was impressed! Great taste. Fine color. Super head. Beautiful amber. For me, it was all there. He and a friend made it, and since they both have yellow dogs, they called this batch: Yellow Dog. Annie must be so proud!
We're approaching Maine Maple Sugar Sunday, and coming up with sweet maple sugar for pancakes, ice cream and such is quite a long process and entails lots of hard work. I think, if I had a choice, I'd take the micro brew road. I'd savor the end product a lot more. As a matter of fact, Marchin's going let me tag along next time. Maybe something for Memorial Day?
I might be saluting the flag with a bottle of Birdman's Best? You never know.
So, I'm saluting the arrival of spring with sips of Yellow Dog!
