Fishing gear and good New England microbrew beer? These are two of my favorite things.
And so, we decided to create a new video series called — you guessed it — “Gear & Beer.” With each episode we will review a new piece of fishing equipment and pair it with one of our favorite beers.
For the first episode we reviewed Fishpond’s Thunderhead sling pack (full in-depth review coming this week). We paired it with Maine Beer Company’s Lunch, simply one of the best beers made in New England, in my opinion. We were lucky enough to get a keg of it recently, and have been drinking it at the beach house.
In the review you’ll see a new face: that’s my dad, Andy Sparks, a big fisherman in his own right. He lives on the beach in southern Maine, and can be often found chasing stripers. He’ll be joining me on a bunch of these reviews.
Enjoy the video, and let me know what you think of the new series!
