I’m recovering after a roller coaster week of bachelor living and Jersey Shore extended family “vacation.”  I’m taking things slower this week.  But here’s a couple thoughts.

I love shrimp and scallops.  I tried to beer-brine and grill some this sunday.  The brine was a bit too intense for the little shrimpys, but the scallops came out awesome.  I used Victory Hop Devil with some sea salt and spices.  I really like the idea of marinated/brining in beer.  I hope there will be much more of such things in the future.  I just need to get my Lucy Saunders book back from my brother in law for more beer cuisine ideas!

This Saturday is our monthly “Beer of the Bike” ride.  We had to change the plans at the last minute, and honestly, I like the new plans better.  We’ll be riding out to Sly Fox (Edit: I found out that the Sly Fox site was just redone, check it out, it looks great!) .  I’ve been really enjoying their beers lately, and I’m looking forward to trying to grab some growlers at the brewery!  It exciting to me that a silly idea I came up with, as a new years resolution of sorts, has taken on a life of its own.  I’m expecting close to 20 people to ride with us on Sat.  I can’t wait!
