This was the last beer I had at Beertown. When I ordered it, I had people around me looking at me like I was from Mars. It’s 10%! That’s a lot! Are you insane? Pesh! I have a 14% in the fridge at home. I’ve had many a beer above 10%. I can handle this. And besides, this was the last draught beer that I hadn’t tried. So it was kinda symbolic.
[UPDATE: When I took these notes, the description of the beer in their printed beer bible stated it was 10%. Looking at it now, it is 8.5%, same as every other website in the world]
When it came, it was in a cute snifter glass with pink elephants all over it. It was a pale, cloudy, saison colour and it smelled like booze. Well, booze and wheat, but mostly booze. It tasted like a really smooth farmhouse.
Pretty uneventful for a big beer. It is kinda cool that Beertown is the only place I’ve ever seen it. (turns out you can get it at TBS…but only in kegs)
That concludes my first trip to Beertown. My summation, the food was OK, the beer choices, for the non-beer-blogger, where plentiful, but their prices stink. As a comparison, I can go downtown to Milos and grab the exact same beer for $1.75 less….and their servers know the difference between a cream ale and an IPA.
