by Mast Landing Brewing
A beautifully aromatic and balanced milk stout with delicious notes of peanut butter, coffee, and dark chocolate. This dark, mythical beer nods to the long-passed legends of Maine’s region’s seafarers. Brewed with natural flavors to taste like peanut butter and chocolate, without using either; nut free, and contains lactose.
A return home.
A perfect pairing for mischief and imagination, I drop the needle on this all-time classic piece of music as I continue to crack open a Gunner’s Daughter and pour it into my favorite glass as my microwavable dinner cools on the counter. This Pandemic Thanksgiving of 2020 is quite unusual! My parent’s living room in Maine, once filled with family in years past, is now just me and my mac and cheese. As my folks are off for the night, visiting my grandparents. It’s time to start laying out my plans. I’m the man of the house now. The first attempt for entry will definitely be the garage. I bring my beer downstairs and turn off the power to the electric door opener. The lights won’t turn on when the door is pried open and the intruders enter. The gallons of unused hand-sanitizer spilled across the floor should take them off guard. Next up: the back door. First, I dump countless Vitamin D pills and other supplements onto the concrete steps. The weather is cold enough. These bad boys should freeze and be hard as marbles. There’s a little trap door for the cellar at the top of the steps. I open the latch, drop the door, and pile on all of the empty Amazon Prime boxes. What may look like a sturdy structure to climb over surely is not… And now, the pièce de ré·sis·tance: 10 rolls of loosely wrapped toilet paper mounted in front of two industrial leaf blowers that will be triggered when the door opens. Nothing too intricate but a fun little set up for my brother and I to act out for TikTok. Oh! He’s early. A car door shuts. I open the window to tell him to wait outside. But that’s not his car...and whoever it is already made their way up toward the house...oh no! They’re back early. “Wait! Mom, no!”
