Gotta give a shout out to one of my local favorites who just had a nice write up in the Boston Globe:

If you are in the Portsmouth, NH area (which basically means if you are in New England...yes everything is that close), definitely make a plan to stop by.

I can also give you recommendations for several other places around as well.  Tod Mott's place, Tributary Brewing is right across the bridge in Kittery, ME.  Tod is famous for Kate the Great Imperial Stout (now called Mott the Lesser) and the creator of Harpoon IPA back in the day.


If I ever open/own a brewery we'll just do a Torso series of beers named Bob, Phil, Matt, etc. Sure it will be in poor taste, but at least no one will get all bent out of shape over the names!

Don't forget Eileen...need something for the ladies (and hipsters :) )

If the Red Sox don't get some pitching soon, I'm going to have to start pulling for the Cubs.  Anyone's team got a bag of balls they want to trade for Buchholz?

I'm just hoping Price has a second half like last year.

Congrats!  Now start saving those SS checks and bottle return money to fund your trip to Minnesota next June :)

I never heard of Larry Bird being a douche.  Michael Jordan, either.

MJ will come up to you on a plane to see if you're wearing the right underwear...decent guy if you ask me :)

I'm just glad it's over so sports radio can stop talking about it.  I mean the Sox are in a race for first place and the Pats have had their first offseason workouts...who watches basketball anyways.

The only curse I want to see broken is the Cubs (assuming the Red Sox are out of it).  And of course that Patriots curse of not winning a Superbowl for 1 year straight...we've waited long enough! ;)

Wish I could be there with everyone. Hopefully NHC makes it up to New England sometime in the next few years.

The post-conference survey they sent out had Providence as one of the cities you'd like to see NHC at.  Don't see that happening anytime too soon.

Boston would be great (and expensive) but I'd really love to see Portland (Maine...not that other Portland imposter :) )

Congrats to forum regular theDarkSide who got a Silver in European Amber Lager!

Congrats! I take full credit if I judged it. lol

Or blame because I didn't get Gold :)

Although the gold went to the Ninkasi winner, so I can't be too upset.  My silver in 2012 was 2nd to the Homebrewer of the Year...always a bridesmaid.. ;)

Who's the guy without the beard and why is he there?


I don't have a beard but Toby is blocking my face so you can't tell.

Dang it... I was hoping for Austin Texas.  Oh well.  Should still be fun.  I'm not making it to Baltimore this year, but I'll hope to go next year (and hope they change the name back to NHC.....)

I think in the past Texas was out due to some outdated alcohol laws.  I'm not sure if it's still the case though.
