This is an interesting story for me to write. I have worked at Offshore Ale since 2005, which dates back to even before Phil and Colleen McAndrews bought it. So much has changed with them becoming owners, and I think they are part of the reason I have been committed for so long. The staff […]

This pizza place that was once located in Nevin Square — just across from our new Point B Real Estate Store — quickly made a name for itself. With fresh, inspired combinations of topics, […]

Finally, an official beer pairing dinner at Offshore Ale, and not just one dinner, but a series! I bet you’ve been to plenty of wine pairing dinners, but beer? There are so many beer styles and beer can be a great way to compliment a dish. Offshore hosted its first beer dinner on Wednesday, January […]

A year ago, a couple of parents got together to discuss the playground portion of the Niantic Park renovation. The whole Oak Bluffs park was getting rehabbed. How thrilling to have this happening for the Island community. However, the budget for the playground portion of the park, which also includes basketball courts and tennis courts, […]
