It’s officially spring in New York City. I know this because I bought my first iced coffee of the season at lunch yesterday and the pull toward bright, lighter clothing is so strong. I am resisting but one thing I can’t resist are all the spring beers available on tap. If you are a little nervous about beer, I feel like spring is a good time to do a few tastings. Everything is light! (But it tastes better than anything labeled “light” or “lite” — score!)
This month, we’re getting into the spirit of Earth Day and in the spirit of recycling and reusing I’m going to chat about a beer I’ve had before but had again recently: Captain Lawrence’s Freshchester Pale Ale. It’s wheat-y, it’s light and it goes down so easily… you could probably have three and not even realize it. Bonus: this beer is recommended to be paired with pizza or Mexican food. Does it get any better?
It does! I am so pumped for my book recommendation today.
First There Was Forever by debut writer Juliana Romano pubs on the 14th of this month and in the spirit of Earth Day, the main character, Lima, loves to garden, her mom’s big into health food, and they love to go to the farmer’s market. She’s only 16 but she’s sort of an old soul and that’s probably why I felt for her so much when her best friend starts to change and life gets complicated very quickly. One of my favorite books this year, the cover is beautiful, and the inside will certainly get your heart pumping and your toes dying for a dip in the Pacific Ocean.
I have a hunch we’re in for a lovely spring — whether we’re talking brews or books. Go out there and have an adventure, okay?
