Southern Tier Pumking Ale

Southern Tier Pumking Ale

Last Fall, I did a little write-up about pumpkin beers. I tasted them and used my patented “pumpkin meter” to rate each beer. The highest mark went to Terrapin Brewery’s Pumpkinfest – still a great beer and one I highly recommend.

At the time, though, I had not yet discovered Southern Tier Pumking. And thus I write today, as the fall seasonal beers hit the shelves for 2013: buy this beer. This is the gold standard, the king, if you will, of pumpkin beers.

Ben’s Chili Bowl and Other Recent Happenings

Bens Chili Bowl and Other Recent Happenings

Despite the combined DC-living experience between my wife and I of 36 years (most of that experience being hers), somehow neither of us had actually ever tried Ben’s Chili Bowl. Ben’s is sort of DC’s version of a trademark junk food—our Philly cheesesteak; our Chicago deep-dish pizza; our Baltimore crabs, I guess one could say. Well, this weekend, we found ourselves at a Nationals game, and decided to give the classic half-smoke a roll.
