Last Saturday, May 14, Captain Lawrence Brewing Company hosted their 5th Anniversary Pig Roast and BBQ. With Capt. Lawrence slowly becoming my favorite brewery, mixed with my love of supporting local businesses, I decided to check the party out. All I knew was that were was going to be great beer, food, and music. Thats all I really need to know to convince me to show up somewhere. Similar to Greg Behrendt’s “there might be cake”, if you tell me “there might be craft beer” its almost a guarantee that I will show up. It didn’t disappoint.

Walking from the train station I heard music similar to the Grateful Dead playing in the distance. I knew that had to be where I was headed. Following the sounds of the groovy jam band, I found myself at the brewery where I instantly saw a large and happy crowd gathered throughout the Captain Lawrence parking lot, some under a very large tent and some gathered by the stage where the band was playing. The beer selection consisted of the Freshchester Pale Ale, Liquid Gold, and the Saison, all excellent beer choices. I indulged in each beer, a great pulled pork sandwich, free pretzels, and five different bands, all of whom were very good. The gravy was convincing my girlfriend that Johnny Depp was at the party. For a better portion of the day, she believed that we were graced by Jack Sparrow’s presence. She was ready to approach him for a picture when she found out that it wasn’t Gilbert Grape, but rather a man named Jason who happened to be in one of the bands playing that day. His band, which I can’t remember the name of, happened to be very good and he did have me fooled as well for a good minute. Overall, I have to thank Scott at Captain Lawrence for throwing this party and look forward to their 6th year.
