It's Friday...let's have a drink!

Hopefully this weekend I can catch up with some posts on our trip to Florida, but for now it's let's have a drink!

On a side note, we went to Ruby Tuesday's tonight and I asked for a pomegranate margarita and somehow ended up with a pomegranate saki martini...don't ask.  It was okay but definitely not my favorite.  I'm just not a martini girl. 

Before Ruby's we went to the local packy to find a "wintery" beer so I have something to drink for our holiday party tomorrow night.  I ended up getting Harpoon Winter Warmer and I'll probably do a post on that eventually, but today I am focusing on one of our favorite beers of all time...

Sea Dog Blue Paw Wheat Ale

We kept passing this in the cooler section and then saw 12 packs, as well, and this made me think of our wedding, weekend trips in Maine, and warmer weather :-)  

I can't remember how I fell in love with Sea Dog Blue could have been when we went up to Maine for a weekend once.  Almost every time we go to Portland, we hit up the Shipyard Brewing Company tour so I'm guessing I tried the Blue Paw then, since they bottle Sea Dog in the same warehouse as Shipyard beers.

Blue Paw is best on draft and is perfect with a handful of fresh blueberries.  It's a light ale and something I recommend to friends and co-workers who don't drink a lot of beer.  Fruity beers are usually the way to go if you're not a big beer drinker and you just can't go wrong with Blue Paw. 

This was of course one of the beers we asked our wedding site to have in the bar for us.  Here's a picture of me chugging one down inbetween posing for formal pictures.  Yup, I'm pretty classy.

The last weekend we spend in Maine was this past Labor Day and we visited the Sea Dog Microbrewery Restaurant in South Portland.  I highly recommend going there for a casual meal - they have a lot of their Sea Dog beers on tap (also try Raspberry - amazing!) and the food was great and inexpensive.  I remember having an open-faced turkey sandwich and it was like a mini Thanksgiving dinner.  I wish they had a restaurant closer to us, as I have a feeling we would be there every weekend. 

Happy Friday!
