I went in to the Vista Country Store in North Conway, New Hampshire to grab some 1/2n1/2 and cream cheese. While I was in there I figured I check to see if they had the new beer from Woodstock Inn Brewery - Double Pig's Ear. Why would I look for a craft beer in a little country store? Because Vista Country Store has a remarkable selection of local and non-local craft beer! Apparently, they have the best pizza around, as well.
When I walked into the store I said, "I only want to get the one beer. Oh, and maybe if they have the one from White Birch that we can't get at home."
Yes, of course, they had the beers I specifically wanted. I also I walked out with a bottle each of those . . . plus 11 others and a six pack of Mama's Yella Pils from Oskar Blues. I got the six pack to be entered into a contest to win a pair of custom Oskar Blues skis.
I have all of those wonderful brews to drink (and blog about) and maybe - just maybe - I'll win a cool pair of beer skis!!
