CASK NIGHT THURSDAY. The first thing you’ll notice about our Elderberry FrambÖzen cask is its reddish color with purplish hues, topped by a creamy pink head. The elderberry flower’s aroma is a perfect complement to the raspberry’s rich, delicious flavour. Berry flavours, subtle floral notes and hints of tropical citrus evoke a notable fruity bouquet from the very first sip. Hungry? 🍗@great_wings will be onsite serving up tasty eats. 5PM until supplies last.
Location: Lancaster, MA | Bolton Flats | 288-290 Seven Bridge Rd.
~ This slow moving stretch of the Nashua River called Bolton Flats is by far my favorite portion of this stream. The water is very clear and has a distinct sandy riverbed that is perfect for swimming! We launched right before a bridge off of a sandy beach, and headed south upstream. Beautiful farmlands surrounded us on both sides and a chorus of birds were following us. Along the way there were many sandy beaches, where we were able to get out and take a swim to cool off. At one point the river forked and we were able to explore a cove that had a canopy of trees above and a narrow brook that was feeding the river. After exploring the cove we paddled around a few downed trees as we started to notice some small rapids forming. When paddling around the last corner we came across a large beaver den that was not passable. Overall, a very peaceful river with pristine water quality.

~ I don’t know if it’s because I’m a sucker for blood orange or if this beer was sent from the hop heavens!? This juicy NE IPA hits every single mark and packs a complex flavor profile. At first sip you are smacked in the face with blood orange, clementine, fresh vanilla, floral hops, and cracker malt. The fresh vanilla lingers throughout and combines very nicely with the creamy lactose of the body. A bit light on the carbonation, however it allows the juicy hops to come through and take center stage. It finishes on the dry side with bitter orange rind, creamy wheat, and an orange creamsicle taste. So far this is the best beer of 2018—too bad it’s a limited batch!
