I enjoyed many fine New England brews during my recent trip to Massachusetts, and most of them were supplied by Colonial Spirits.
We arrived in Carlisle, MA outside of Boston after a 7-hour drive from Kensington, MD. As soon as we unpacked the van at my in-laws for our President’s Day weekend visit, I was back out the door on the way to the beer store.
Colonial Spirits is ten-minute drive from my in-laws in nearby Acton, and it’s one of my favorite beer stores anywhere. I loaded my cart with beer that I can’t find at home, including the Opa Opa Brewing Company Mixed Pack. The 12-pack included:
- Opa Opa Light, perfect, since I’ve been on a Light beer kick lately trying to keep the beer calorie count down
- Blueberry Lager, brewed with Beth’s favorite fruit beer ingredient
- Red Rock Ale, a sessionable Red
- Opa Opa IPA, a tasty and bitter IPA
I liked the mix of brews in this 12-pack, and it left me wanting more Opa Opa. I really want to visit the Opa Opa Steakhouse and Brewery in Southampton, MA. It sounds like my kind of place – a family friendly restaurant with a long menu of pub grub and steaks. And did I mention that they brew their own beer on-site?
