Lake St. George Brewing Company Review

Lake St. George Brewing Company — Liberty, Maine   Lake St. George Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery located in Liberty, Maine. To say my visit to this locale was a pleasant one would be an understatement. In fact, I can easily say that it will be “the place” to go when I’m looking for a cozy atmosphere and a delicious craft brew. The building itself is reminiscent of a large, renovated barn- which I find particularly appealing. Inside are high vaulted ceilings and wooden beams. A scattering of both low and high-top tables and chairs provide ample seating...

Top 10 Book Boyfriends List

Top 10 Best Book Boyfriends   I have a confession to make. I’ve had countless relationships with men. Some that I remember fondly, others that are merely a vague recollection of sigh-worthy moments, and some whose names are forever imprinted on my mind and heart. These past beaus are neither one alike. In fact, some do not even exist in the same century. Others come from differing backgrounds, such as piracy, the mafia, and dukedoms. Others are not entirely human. For example, I’ve dated a brooding werewolf or two, a mysterious vampire or four, a sea king, a god,...

Two Gramps Brewing Review

Two Gramps Brewing – Gardiner, Maine Two Gramps Brewing is a microbrewery located in Gardiner, ME that features eight of their brews on tap. The craft brews range from double IPA’s, German pilsners, and Scottish ales to pale ales and cider-like ales. For those looking for a dark, smoky brew- Two Gramps’s “Beam Me Up Scotty” is perfect. For those like myself who prefer a light, somewhat fruity brew- Two Gramps’s “Beane’s Tonic” apple ale is the beverage to try. The more dense and hoppy brews would be the 104 Stars (a double IPA) and Even Steven. These will...
