Bill’s parents are in town and watched the kids yesterday so we could go out. We ate lunch at the Dogfish Head Ale House. I don’t get the name. I don’t care.
Bill, noticing the Wi-Fi sign on the door, said, “It’s a good thing I don’t work near here.”
Normally, I would drink water, especially with lunch. But I knew ordering a beer would make Bill really happy: see New Month’s Resolution for August (2008). So I pondered the extensive list of craft brews and picked the Fort because it has a raspberry flavor.
“Sorry I picked such a girly beer,” I apologized.
“It’s not such a girly beer,” he said pointing out the 18% alcohol content. He went with the Raison D’Etre at 8% ABV.
When the server helping our waiter delivered our drinks, mine was in a cordial glass. “And who has nothing else to do today?” he asked regarding my selection.
I ate a lot of carbs. And drank a lot of water. I was cheerful and warm.
Unfortunately, they do not sell the Fort for take home. I guess you can’t bottle happiness.
If you live in my neck of the woods and have not eaten at the Dogfish Head Ale House, I really recommend you try it. Bill has eaten there three times, and I have eaten there twice. We have never been disappointed. Although I am moving, I know we will be back here in a few years. This place will be one thing to look forward to when that time comes.
A beer we had at our house over Christmas was Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale which all the girls seemed to really like (I didn't have any), but the guys really like, too. It does come in a bottle, but only in real beer/wine stores. It comes with a little brandy snifter for best smells.
I haven't eaten there, don't live remotely close, but DO enjoy Dogfish Head 60 minute ale regularly. Hmmm. Is it noon yet?
