Hurricane Sandy is moving out, and leaving behind a wide trail of destruction. Thankfully, we were spared any significant issues - lost power for about ten minutes, and we have some branches down in the yard. Nothing to write home about, which is great, as last night all you heard in our neighborhood was the wind howling and police/fire/ambulance sirens going off around the clock. Obviously everyone wasn't so lucky, including a neighbor six houses down who is currently extracting a tree from their roof. Best wishes to all of the blog readers out there for a safe and speedy recovery from the storm.
As I'm fairly sick and tired of rain, wind, and dreary weather, today I'm going to pretend it's summer again and sample a Point Nude Beach, a summer wheat beer from Stevens Point Brewery. This one is a hazy, pale yellow color with a big white head. You pick up the aroma of yeast, grain, and spice, and when you take a sip you find light citrus and a slight peppery spice, along with wheat and a hint of sweetness. Great beer for summer - I could easily picture a case of this on ice for a baseball game or concert tailgate, or even a day at the beach. And, if we see more hurricanes like the one that just blew through, I just might own some beachfront property here soon (sorry, New Jersey - you had your turn)! To honor this beer, I hereby decree any beaches outside my door will be Nude Beach only.
