  • Caught the bug in the summer of 2011...My "brewery" is called Pilgrim Abbey. I like to brew with anyone in the south shore of Mass, so drop me a line if you want to get together.

  • Posted in thread: Worst Commercial Beer You've Ever Had? on 06-20-2016 at 01:07 PM
    Huh? The thread is dedicated to the worst commercial beers that people have had. Even if it

    I would have to say that being a local and tasting the winners over the past years, you really

    Over the years, and over the course of this site and its advice, I've just learned to deal with
    it. Done all I can to avoid it, sometimes super clear...sometimes not. Done nothing...sometimes
