Craft Beer Craze

Ever wonder what exactly is a craft beer? Why are some of these beers so hard to get? And what’s up with all the funny names and labels on the cans anyway? Now is a great time to be an adventurous beer drinker in the United States. While Americans are drinking less beer than even a few years ago, we are drinking better products that quench our thirst in more ways than one. A craft (or micro) brewery produces small amounts of beer and is typically independently owned by the brewer and perhaps a few investors, unlike the big beer houses that are mass-produced and owned by a corporation. Many of the smaller breweries begin as a side project in someone’s basement or garage with an emphasis on quality, flavor and brewing technique, and eventually grow their experience and exploration into a bigger space.

Knight LIGHTS of Nantucket

For anyone arriving on Nantucket via the ferry, one of most iconic and picturesque scenes you will see as you come into the Nantucket harbor is also one of the island’s most recognizable structures.   Nantucket is home to not one, but three lighthouses, and this is what you will see when first arriving to island on a boat. Lighthouses are an essential part of maritime navigation at sea or with inland waterways. For Nantucket, this means making your way through the Grey Lady fog and avoiding the dangerous shoals off the coast. The US Bureau of Lighthouses was created by Congress in 1789 but today lighthouses fall under the United States Coast Guard. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses that are monitored by actual personnel has declined due to the expense of maintenance and also the use of electronic navigational systems. While it is safe to say that getting to see all three of the Grey Lady’s lighthouses...Read More >
