About alewifecove

I am a home brewing, hop growing, history loving foodie from the Coast of Maine. In my daily life I endeavor to make people think I have a few brain cells that still seem to function. Usually I succeed. I am married to a woman who has the patience of a saint and the strength of a high priestess. For some inexplicable reason, she has chosen to tolerate my presence for some 19 years now.
