6 months in …

Well folks, it’s been right around six months since Drink & Hunt was conceived in the bowels of a random dive bar in Boston. We’ve been having a lot of fun ever since!

In the past six months, we’ve Hunted with over 500 people, helped people find some great new watering holes and made some awesome new friends. Not bad for a little start-up!

So what’s next for the D&H crew? Well, we’re playing with the idea of doing monthly or bi-montly Hunts that are open to everyone. Similar in style tour “Big Hunt” series that ran for 8 weekends in September/October of this year.

Here’s a look at some of the themed/seasonal Hunts we’re thinking about:

80's Ski Gear Hunt

Rockin' some old school Ski gear!

  • Ugly Sweater Holiday Hunt (Happening Saturday Dec 4th!)
  • The 80′s Ski Hunt (January)
  • Life’s a Beach, Think Warm Hunt (February)
  • St. Paddy’s Pandemonium (March)

Of course, we’re always ready to put together a Hunt for you, your friends, the bachelor or bachelorette!

As we move along, we’ll keep you advised of how this all pans out! Stay tuned folks – and remember to get after it!

Feeling like summer, playing with our hearts!

We’re big fans of summer. Swimming, getting a good tan (or at least trying to!), long days – you know the drill. We were okay when it started getting cooler here in Boston, too. But this back and forth is killing us! We don’t even know what beer we should be drinking. So we took a trip to the liquor store (or for the Bostonians “the packie”) and got ourselves a couple of six packs.

While we were there, we were reminded that there is indeed beer for every season, and thanks to our local purveyor of liquor, these seasonal beers run into each other. So in addition to the Sam Seasonal (Octoberfest!), we picked up one of the last remaining Shipyard Brewing Company’s summer seasonal packs too. Yeah, we know those come only in 12-bottle boxes, but consider it two six packs together!

So now we’re prepared. Bring it on weather! Hot, cold, summery or crisp .. we’re ready for you and ready for the weekend!

Bringing Beers to the Masses

Well, we promised it, and we think we delivered.

This weekend was a blast! The first of several weekends for Drink & Hunt fun with our partners www.buywithme.com, The Grand Canal and 21st Amendment.

Folks, it’s THE BIG HUNT, and if you haven’t heard the word already, it’s a fantastic deal right now.

Drink & Hunt is offering folks the chance to partake in a Hunt of their very own. If you don’t know the drill already, we’re looking for Hunters to put together teams of 4-8 people and get their drink on while finding some of the best watering holes around Boston!

So in our own little way, we’re helping to bring beers to the masses. Not telling you how to drink it, not really even telling you where to drink it. Just enjoy it and all of its beer-y goodness!

TTDWB Does Dallas (recap)

Well folks, it was a fantastic long Labor Day weekend, and as we’re sure you understand, the weekend got away from us a little bit. That’s the price the Drink & Hunt crew is willing to pay for an amazing weekend! It’s only every so often that you get a chance to hang out with great friends and see new watering holes (and some old favorites) in The Big D.

A couple of shout outs while we were down there – some truly epic places to check out if you’re dead down to Dallas anytime soon: , The Loon and were all great places to get your “suds” on. It’s safe to say that those establishments offer a great choice no matter what your fancy is.

Uptown Bar & Grill: Karaoke! Need we say more! A great place to see and be seen in the heart of the McKinney Avenue social scene!

The Loon Bar & Grill: Just outside of West Village, (a 30 thousand dollar millionaire’s dream) this place is just old school. Brick, no windows, a great dive bar with some really generous pours! Oh, and its CHEAP, like the budgey!

Meddlesome Moth: One of the newest hotspots in the Design District. Great outdoor area and a ton of craft and local brews. They do a pretty sweet happy hour special as well!

So yeah, there were more places visited, but we here at TTDWB look to give you the “high hard ones” … the places that we thought were amongst the best of the best. Well, that and things got a bit hazy!

TTDWB on the road!

TTDWB is on the road for the start of a long Labor Day weekend. We’re coming at you live from Memphis, TN – the home of Ghost River Brewing Company, Elvis and some lip smacking BBQ!

Okay, we’re not really in Memphis, it’s just a connection at the airport on our way to the final destination: Dallas, Texas! Yeehaw!

More from The Big D, soon!

A good “cleaning beer”

So its a beautiful Saturday afternoon here in Boston, and our office here at Drink & Hunt/TTDWB is a mess. What does that mean for us? Well, we’re doing a little bit of spring cleaning. Well, let’s call it “late summer cleaning”, that seems more appropriate. That got us thinking, what is the perfect six pack to accompany an afternoon of cleaning?

We’re currently enjoying some Long Trail Ale – cheap, not too heavy and good on taste. There’s nothing worse than being active and getting bogged down by a heavy beer. Then again, there’s not point in drinking a “Light” beer either, ever. Unless of course your cleaning is complimented by drinking games. Unfortunately for us, that’s not the case today!

The Great American Road Trip

So Billy Simons (website ) is a good friend of ours here at Drink & Hunt. Billy is an up and coming artist from western Massachusetts who is making big moves! Starting out in New York and headed to LA, Billy has done an amazing job of documenting his journey.

In addition to the amazing photos, Billy has met a ton of interesting folks all along the way, and shares his experiences in an amusing and descriptive way. Bikers, Hillbillys, the sights and sounds of heading west in a van and sleeping in Walmart parking lots. Its like sitting alongside him in the passenger seat!

So yeah, this is kind of a plug for his blog – but us folks here at TTDWB don’t think it’s anything more than a great bunch of stories written by a true road warrior and gifted artist. Give it a read and take a trip!

The Red Lobster Beer Guide?!

First things first … what?! Second, shout out to “wchesak” on for pointing this out.

Apparently, somewhere buried deep in its , Red Lobster, the moderately priced seafood chain found near every strip mall on both sides of the Mississippi, has a guide to help its customers pick a beer that works best for them.

We get the idea, not everyone knows much about beer. If you’re coming off the farm for a fancy lobster dinner in Tumbleweed, Iowa you might know nothing other than Bud, Bud Light and the “fancy beer”, MGD. Maybe you want to try something “exotic” like a Guinness or Stella Artois. Perhaps it will go better with your Lobster that hasn’t seen the ocean in more than a week? This gives those folks a shot at trying something different.

It just seems strange. Stack on top this the pixelated logos, some odd coding … we’re not judging, it’s all just a bit strange. Maybe it was never meant to be seen?
