One Girls Crazy Outlook on life in Southern Maine

In December 2010 I moved to Southern Maine from a small town next to Bangor (Bangor is right in the center Maine and is one of the largest cities in Maine for those of you wondering if it's in Canada). Here are some crazy stories of outings, hikes, beer and just the general mayhem that is my life. Welcome. Enjoy. Love it.

Okay, Let me explain

Now that my life has settled down, I have decided that I am going to start blogging again.

Let me start by saying that I took that photo of Portland that is being used for the title. I am pretty proud of it. Please don't steal it. It's not yours. :)

I am switching it up though. Mostly because I am bored with just posting about food. Also, we are trying to save money, and eating out doesn't help with that. Also, We have so much more going on in our lives than just food. When I say "we" I am talking about my boyfriend and I.

Together we want to lose 100 pounds. Eating out is not going to help this either.
Also, we LOVE hiking.

We got some new hiking books for christmas, and have every intention of using them. I will tell you all about it.

Beer is another love of ours. Don't read into it, we aren't alcoholics (alcoholics go to meetings). If we have the oppurtunity, we will try a new beer.

I am sure I will write about a lot of other things that go on in my wild and crazy life.

Enjoy the ride.

Shipyard Applehead

While I would love to sit here and tell you this beer is amazing. I can't.

As someone who counts down the days to Pumpkinhead, you can imagine my excitement when I saw there was an applehead beer.

Shipyard Brewing Company is located at 86 Newbury St. Right here in lovely Portland, Maine.

Pumpkinhead is a cinnamon pumpkin malt beverage made by Shipyard Brewing Company.
It comes out just before Halloween  every year, tastes just like a pumpkin pie. When I drink it at hope, I add brown sugar to the rim of the glass. This makes it taste more like a pumpkin pie.

Now, back to the applehead malt beverage.

When I bought this beer, or "malt beverage" I thought for sure it was going to taste just like apple cider. It doesn't.

The mixture of apple and cinnamon is just not balenced. I have not tried it with the brown sugar on the glass rim, but I am sure I will ample oppurtunity to do so considering I bought a 12 pack. Why would I do this you ask? well, because thats the only way they sell it at RSVP. Oh, AND it's $15.99. Yea, we all make mistakes.
