I picked up a six pack of Shipyard Brown Ale at my local Ralph's supermarket, after enjoying the Porter and Blueberry Shipyard varieties earlier this year. While I enjoyed drinking it, the Brown Ale fell short of my "amazing flavor" expectations that the Porter had previously established. It's a fine beer, very drinkable, pleasant; not wimpy, diluted, or corporate by any means. I just don't know if I'd buy it again, if there are other choices to be had. Not a failure, but not a 'home run' either.
It was good, but not great. Portland Maine continues to make some good craft beer.
Create your own visitor map! Gray Background tones, because despite many peoples' view that Everything in the world is simply Black or White, (all fundamentalists, many engineers, few scientists, lots of confused persons, many digital thinkers) there's all sorts of shades of gray, everywhere you look. Good wine doesn't have to be expensive. Conservatives do not have to be selfish and insane wing-nuts. Liberals do not have to have socialist-abortion-producing-crystal-worshiping-gay-marriages. Racists, xenophobes, fundamentalists, and willful ignorance suck. The Earth is Much Older than 6000 years. Don't be afraid of Science, embrace it. The web's a great tool. ..in the humble perspective of this INTJ alpha male.
