Flip N' Breakfast

We were recently mentioned in an interesting article about drinking during Labor Day (always a great idea, unless you're pregnant of operating heavy machinery or fireworks). 

The article covers a lot of ground, from beer's role in the origins of the labor movement to thematically appropriate beers for the holiday.  There's also a recipe for a porter-tinged "flip," which is a traditional cocktail that counts an egg among its ingredients.  Being curious and ever-thirsty, we asked our friend Gavin Beaudry from the Black Birch in Kittery, Maine to show us how to make the Flip N' Breakfast.

Try making your own Flip N' Breakfast and let us know how it turns out!

Happy Labor Day folks!

Brewing Victorian Style in the UK

Director of Brewing Operations, Dave Yarrington and Minister of Propaganda, JT Thompson, traveled to the UK in February to brew a batch at beer at Wadworth Brewery which was to be in 850 JD Wetherspoons pubs as part of their Real Ale Festival.  The beer was called 'Murrican Mild, 4.2% American-style mild ale brewed with orange peel and lots of late boil hops and dry hops. 

Here's a videologue of their adventure.
