I hope everyone had a great weekend, filled with lots and lots of awesome beer! I know that I checked off a few beers off my wishlist. Here’s a few of the best beer blog posts that I read last week…

Brookston Beer Bulletin: The Onion Punks Sam Adams
You might want to check out this unique case of beer that The Onion re-decorated, especially if you’re a Yankees fan. Just for the record, I’m a huge fan of Sam Adams and I wanted to thank them for providing the beer at Datz last night for a domestic violence prevention¬†fundraiser.

Blog About Beer: Baxter Brewing Stowaway I.P.A. Review
I’ve been going to the beach just about every other weekend and sneaking in cans of beer with me. Unless you want to go for a dreaded macro beer, there’s limited selection. Here’s one canned beer that I wish I could find at a store near me.

The Full Pint: Flying Dog Brewery Pulls Out of 13 States
And the bad news is that one of my favorite brewers is pulling out of a good chunk of the country. Luckily, I’m not living in one of them and I can understand why these companies are doing it, but I hope they realize it makes for a lot of unhappy (and former) fans.

      I have a friend that started a chocolate blog last year, the coffees that she was trying made me realize that there’s a lot more to chocolate than what I see in the stores, the same way that there’s more than beer than just Bud Light. BTW those links are really making me want to buy some chocolate, but I don’t know if any chocolate could survive transit through the hot Florida weather.
