Saturday Links Week 34

On subscriptions:

The important point is that, if you’re able to readily switch to a different app when your current one changes its payment model, then… do it. Just vote with your wallet, and don’t worry about it. To write a pissy review of an app you liked yesterday, in an attempt to vengefully damage their business, is pretty reprehensible, right? It’s like giving one star on Amazon because…

Some photos from our road trip to the Tired Hands Brewing Fermenteria in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Bhavna and I were on our way back from a road trip to Hollow Earth Brewing in Oxford, Pennsylvania.

This place is much bigger than Hollow Earth Brewing. Way bigger. We sat at one of the high chairs. The restaurant has a very “hipster” vibe. Bhavna and I ordered four ounce pours of ale. I had four IPAs. My favourite was the Alien Church.

We had hoped to bring some of the beer back to New Jersey but we soon learned that Tired Hands only fill beer in their branded growlers. Our server offered to trade our Troon Brewing growlers for one of theirs. But … Bhavna and I have an emotional attachment to the unique design of the Troon growlers.

I asked if they offered cans and was told yes. But … not the ones we had just had. Sigh. We left the Fermentaria and walked down the street toward the brewery store. I’ve never seen anything like this for a brewery. The store was designed like the inside of a Banana Republic.

We bought one stem and one stemless glass and a four-pack of Hop Hands.

Virginian multi-culturalism.

When I first moved to Northern Virginia in 1980, it was common to see Confederate flags and to hear “good ol’ boys” talk with racist overtones. Today the region is a multicultural success, has some of the best schools in the country, and is renowned for its globe-spanning ethnic food.

It also helps that Virginia’s immigrants are a mix of…

Last weekend Bhavna and I drove a few hours out to Oxford, Pennsylvania. We wanted to visit Hollow Earth Brewing and try the New England style IPA. A few weeks earlier — maybe even a month or more — we met one of the brewers sitting at the bar at Brick Farm Tavern. He was there with his girlfriend drinking some of the craft ales produced by Troon Brewing. He had seen on Untappd that Troon was rising in the popularity rankings. It’s currently rated among the top 25 breweries in the United States on Untappd.

We talked about the town of Oxford and the sort of beer he likes brewing. Bhavna and I promised we would travel out to visit the brewery. We were happy we found the time to make good on our promise. The ales were excellent.

Bhavna and I arrived just around noon. The friendly staff showed us the menu and recommended the mushroom tacos for lunch. That worked well for both of us. Bhavna is vegetarian.

We each sampled four 4oz pours (16oz total or one pint). My favourite was the Riot Juice. Delicious! We liked it so much we took some home with us. Hollow Earth Brewing prepares cans of beer while we waited. Right in front of us. How cool is that?

We got in the car and drove toward Ardmore toward the next stop on our road trip.

Golden

[exif id=”31122″]

Gravitational Pull by Conclave Brewing in Raritan Township, New Jersey. Juicy and hoppy. An American IPA (“India Pale Ale”) double dry hopped with large amounts of Galaxy, Motueka, and Azacca hops.

That golden colour is an indication of the delicious juicy taste.

Last weekend I attended a macro photography workshop by Don Komerechkahosted by the Princeton Photography Workshop. It was a fun but challenging workshop and I learned just how much I have yet to learn. I am so far from where I want to be with macro but with patience and perseverance I think I can improve my craft. Water droplet macro — or in this case the term “micro” might be…

I like Sourland Mountain Spirits. I took a tour of the distillery shortly after opened to the public and I was impressed by the distillers expertise and attention to quality. I uploaded photos from the even back in March but never got around to writing a blog post about it. With this post, I have repurposed those photos.

I love blueberries. I like eating them a handful at a…
