Summer Series #6/Second Pint Internet Archive

Hammer & Stitch's amber ale, in a pint glass outside of Proper Pint

The nose on Hammer & Stitch’s Amber ale is phenomenal. A little fruity, a little malty, it almost seems like the quintessential beer scent.

And it’s a tasty beverage to boot. Very subtle, with the darker malts coming in later, and a finishing crispness that makes this quaffable ale quaff.

Sitting at the Proper Pint, I realize that I’m running out of spaces that are close to home. It’s time to adventure, while the adventuring is possible. I don’t want to waste time going to spots that don’t have someplace to enjoy my beer outside, though. I suppose I’ll have to do some research.

One of the nice things about going out is that I have options. Proper Pint has a solid 16 beers for me to chose from, and a few ciders too. Not that I wasn’t picking from a selection in a fridge beforehand, but I can make more spur of the moment decisions. I appreciate that.

The pub is quiet today. If I wasn’t under blogging rules, I’d probably consider drinking inside, as the indoors is populated by 3 people, including the barkeep.

But a promise is a promise. I generally believe that a person is only as good as their word-because the actions they take stem from what they tell you. I see it time and time again, in good people and bad. While Maya Angelou’s quote ‘when someone shows you who they are the first time, believe them’ is generally used to warn people away, there is a case to be made for trusting good folks.

I told you I’d sit outside. It’s a nice day-if I’m going to keep my word, let’s make it a word that is easy to keep, right?

Today’s second pint is going to the Internet Archive organization.

  1. If you’re going to say (promise) what you mean… think very hard on it… before you say it. Same applies to meaning what you say. Thanks for keeping the promise.
