No glass at the beach, but cans are okay.
St. John Brewers has just released “Island Summer Ale” in cans. An acceptable adult beverage for the beach, a boat, or poolside.
St. John Brewers also just re-released “Liquid Sunshine,” a Belgian Ale that’s part of their small batch seasonal series, a follow up to this year’s “Pale Tourist” ale. It’ll be available for about six months.
As for the new Tap Room at Mongoose Junction, destroyed by fire earlier this year, the plans are to reopen in early 2016. The
temporary Tap Room is a fine place in the meantime.
Don’t know the St. John Brewers story? Check our our video with Kevin and Cheech from a couple of years ago…

Above, the Huevos Rancheros, with that bacon. Triple B: Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
Did you miss our video with Amy and Erin this summer? Here it is…

Recent rain has greened things up a bit, but this will give you a sense of how badly rain is still needed on St. John.
It may be brown on land, but a drought can’t change those turquoise waters.
