Moby Dick Brewing Co. – New Bedford, MA

Good day for the ol’ Brew Guide today, as we finally hit 1,000 followers on Instagram! As a token of my appreciation for all the love and support I’ve received, I plan on running a 1k giveaway starting next Monday! Why not just start it now, you ask? I’m going to try to curate some excellent hard to find brew, and that takes the extra mile. As a hint, there will be some recent purchases from Trillium included, which you may have seen a post about. I’ll also drop hints on my Instagram story once everything has been acquired. So if you don’t already, make sure you’re following @nebrewguide on Insta and you might get hooked up!

Now let’s head to the whaling hub of Massachusetts, with Moby Dick Brewing in New Bedford!

Night Shift Brewing – Everett, MA

August is going to be very busy, unfortunately not really in the brewery hopping sense. Some people happen to be getting married and are really putting a damper on the ol’ Brew Guide travels. But, towards the of the month, you’ll be getting a bunch of new spots as I head up north for a whole week. I know I’ll at least be hitting Tuckermans (and might actually take enough pictures to post about it this time) and be revisiting Woodstock Inn, but I need more suggestions! If it’s an hour(ish) away from Conway, NH I’ll take the drive. Post in the comments or shoot me an email (nebrewguide@gmail.com)!

Speaking of finally visiting places and taking enough pictures (barely), I spent some time at Night Shift on Saturday…let’s talk about it!

Newport Storm – Newport, RI

I should apologize for something. It’s been a real long time since I’ve given a Marvel update. Don’t worry though, I’ve still been on top of it!

Spiderman was a fantastic movie in case you somehow missed it. Tom Holland is waaaay better than Andrew Garfield and Michael Keaton sure can play a bird like no other. And then the ComicCon trailers for Thor & Defenders came out and look damn amazing. It’s a good time to be a Marvel fan, so much great stuff is happening.

And this concludes our Marvel minute. Now onto the beer with Newport Storm!

Magic Hat Brewing Co. – S. Burlington, VT

With all the excitement about the “I Drink New England” Shirts being released yesterday and my first try at beer journalism (please check it out and let me know what you think), I forgot to talk about the We’re Funk’d festival on What’s Goin’ Down!

Night Shift and Springdale put together an awesome first year event with a lot of really fantastic sour and wild beers. The German BSV Center in Walpole was a nice venue with the perfect set up for such and event. Next year should be a must attend for anyone that enjoys a bit of Sour Patch tongue. Only critique, hopefully next year they can get a few more food options and a bunch more porta-potties.

Time to put a wrap on Vermont for the time being, with a stop into an old favorite of mine, Magic Hat Brewing Co.
