This past weekend I managed to strike half of one New Year’s Goal off my list: visiting one new state.

Yeah that’s right.

I went to Delaware.

It’s okay to be jealous.

It’s a small state, and besides being the first state, home to tax-free shopping and dueling liquor stores, as well as home to part of some very beautiful beaches, I’m not really sure what else there is to do in Delaware.

Except maybe drink beer.

Turns out, Dogfish Head Brewery is also located in Delaware, and if you like beer at all then it would be in your best interest to make a pilgrimage out to the tiny town of Milton, Delaware (are there any big towns in Delaware?), for a brewery tour. The tour itself is only about 20 minutes long, but like at any good brewery there are free samples after.

Lo, how I love thee, free samples.

And the brewery’s brewpub happens to be a short 20 minute drive away.

We may have trekked over there as well.

And eaten our weights in a delicious appetizer called the “Dog pile.” It involved fried pita chips, artichoke dip and 100 million pounds of melted mozzarella cheese.

And then we maybe washed it down with more beer.

I really can’t think of a better way to achieve a goal.

    I don’t want the beer, just the cool sparkly thing. Mmmmm sparkles.
