As expected, after the first few weeks we have mostly devolved into drinking hard liquor and cheap wine in our rooms on the weekends. Such is the dorm life.
Tonight, though, I picked up a new kind of beer at the grocery store: Stone Mill’s Organic Pale Ale from the Green Valley Brewing Company. I managed to drink a whole bottle before I even remembered it was a new kind of beer. It’s just a little malty, a little hoppy. Very drinkable, even for people who don’t always love a pale ale (like me!). They’re USDA certified organic too, as much as that can mean in beer.
As I was looking around on their website, though, trying to see if they even brew any other kinds (they don’t, as far as I can tell) and found out that, although the beer is brewed in New Hampshire, they are owned by Anheuser-Busch. Sigh. I always check the package carefully, because A-B has a lot of sneaky little fakeouts like this, but it wasn’t on the bottle. I have no idea how autonomous they are, but they do make a tasty beer.
