Been nice to get back to get back to the Shore. Good to see the wife adjusting as well. Amazing what some good seafood will do! Plenty of company. Friends. Family. Now August. Summer in the apex. Mix in a little surfing and primo summer beer. Goes a long way in dissolving the stress of a move. Puts you in the swing.

Dogfish Head ixnayed the Brew Pub. Put up a literal venue. Remodeled the brewery into an oyster house. Had to check it out. Good grub with all the added brews. An added advantage to our piece of the Right Coast. They haven't lost their touch.
This one impressed me. 17.5% ABV
70 IBUs. World Wide Stout.
Brewed with roasted
malts & tons of barley. Throw in
some coffee. Some vanilla. Age in
an oak barrel. Dogfish did this
stout good. Black Velvet brah.
Knock ya on yo ass!
