Up To $850 In Stimulus Checks for Maine
The rollout of Federal checks is over. But state stimulus checks are available for Maine residents and ten other states. During the pandemic, the federal government made trillions available to Americans. This money got released as stimulus payments to businesses and individuals. The payout helped many buy necessities while their economic situation remained uncertain. But these checks have dried up. And families face new challenges such as record-high inflation and stagnant low wages. (source)

“Dirty” language is one step closer to being removed in Maine
Do you have a vanity license plate in Maine that may have questionable or offensive language? Well, &%$&, it’s one step closer to being removed from the roads. Maine's Secretary of State released draft rules on Thursday that would eliminate references to genitalia, profanity, and sex acts on vanity license plates after the state loosened restrictions in 2015. The rough language on these vehicles led to numerous complaints from citizens and was too much even for, as AP News reports, “a secretary of state who previously served as director of American Civil Liberties Union of Maine, which has fought for First Amendment rights to freedom of expression.”
Allagash Swiftly IPA
I drink beers in a whole range of styles, but my favorite style by-far is IPA. I'm a hop-head, haze bro, and every other term you can find for a lover of hop-forward beers. With that being the case, some may find it interesting that one of my all time favorite breweries is Allagash Brewing in Portland, ME. While Allagash is highly respected amongst brewers, beer geeks and many casual drinkers, the are well known for their creative ales that showcase traditional Belgian brewing techniques, with a focus on flavors imparted by expressive yeast strains balanced by malts, adjunct additions, and hops. It is not often that you would label any Allagash beers to be hop-forward. Needless to say I was intrigued when Allagash launched Swiftly, their new IPA. Allagash Swiftly IPA is brewed with Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops and is available now on draft and and in 16 oz cans.

We Went Lobstering in Marietta, GA
When photos from our 2019 trip to the Maine coast popped up in our memories, we began craving a traditional lobster roll. A long way from Maine or even the Georgia coast, we went lobster fishing at Cousins Maine Lobster at the Marietta Food Hall. The plentiful chilled lobster on a traditional toasted bun satisfied our appetite, though it made us long for a return trip to the Northeast. So we've spiced this video with a few of our best lobster memories from Maine as a side dish to our Cousins lobster roll.

New Maine Lobster Roll Restaurant is Now Open
A new lobster restaurant has opened in town.Louis Hansel/Unsplash. For anyone who has traveled to the state of Maine, they know there’s just something about a fresh lobster roll that’s unlike anything else out there. The way the buttery bun or toast wraps around the juicy lobster meat, all while the meat is allowed to be on its own, without the masking of too many other ingredients. It’s a food that, primarily, hasn’t made its way out of the greater New England area (although some versions can be found in Baltimore). Thankfully, for anyone living in the Valley, a taste of this Maine delicacy is coming to town.

Ice fishing for the famous muskellunge, aka the musky, in Maine! Maine ice has been safe for quite a while at this point. Recently, I took a trip up to a northern Maine lake for the fish of 10,000 casts. The fishing shocked me at how many we were able to catch over the span of a weekend!

Battery Steele Roving Jewel NEIPA
There might not be a more divisive sub-style of beer than "milkshake IPAs", a version of New England/hazy IPA that is brewed with lactose, a type of sugar that brewing yeast cannot ferment, so it adds noticeable sweetness to the beer. While lactose has been used in other beers, mostly milk/sweet stouts, the addition of this sugar to hoppy beer is relatively new. The reasoning makes some sense, NEIPAs tend to have some sweet qualities, either perceived sweetness from the fruity hops or actual sweetness due to residual sugars from the fermentation. Beer Geeks and brewers are heavily divided on this sub-style, many consider the beers to be a disgusting abomination, while others love them. I fall in the middle, there are some lactose infused IPAs that I've really enjoyed, and others that were a cloying mess. I usually avoid the versions with vanilla and added fruit, that is just too much sweet for me, but a subtle lactose addition can be a great complement to a fruit-forward NEIPA. One beer I recently tried which falls firmly into the later category is Roving Jewel from Battery Steele Brewing in Portland, ME. Roving Jewel is a NEIPA brewed with Citra, Galaxy, and Motueka hops, a healthy dose of oats for added body, along with a bit of lactose. It is available on a rotating basis on draft and in 16 oz cans.
Things to Do in Rural Maine
It's always been a dream of mine to travel to new places and discover what life is like there. When I was younger, I wanted to travel to well-known cities such as New York City, Paris, and Rome. Most of the places I wanted to go to were in Europe. As much as I love cities like NYC and Paris, I realized that most of these cities just have better PR than others. The older I get, the more I'm attracted to nature and less well-known locales.
