Last week the CBG show featured a repeat of the Jim Koch “Sammosa” show from Spring 2009. This was because Chip was sick, but as it turns out not really sick, unless of course you consider golf-itis to be sick, so he was really golfing last Friday instead of entertaining us, but more importantly his intended beer of the week for last week was supposed to coincide with St. Patrick's Day even though the parade and the day itself had passed, so because he missed parade day, St. Patrick’s Day and the Friday following St. Patrick's Day, our beer of the week today was St. Patrick’s Best Ale. So after that somewhat confusing and lengthy explanation, I find myself a little worn out.
Of course I’m just kidding, but it would probably have been less confusing to do the entire show in Gaelic than follow along with the bouncing beer of the week on a sleepy Friday morning.
Our beer of the week is a contract brewed beer from the Strangford Lough Brewing Co in Northern Ireland and it sounded interesting. Not sure where it is brewed in the US, but I’m always a fan of English Bitter styles so this is one I’ll be sure to check out.
Not too much to report beyond that so I’ll just say Cheers guys…
