If you've been following along this week, you'll know that we've been enjoying some American craft beers. We've tried - click the name for my tasting notes! - Ommegang's Hennepin, Sea Dog's Wild Blueberry, The Bruery's Tart of Darkness, and Clown Shoes' Luchador en Fuego.
To cap off American Craft Beer Week, and to celebrate our kid-free day, we stopped at Peter B's Brewpub and opted for the tasting flight of five beers.
We tasted their Belly Up Blonde Ale, Inclusion Amber Ale, Stout Resistance, Fort Ord Wheat, and Legend of Laguna IPA.
While I am not typcially a hop-head, I have to admit that I really enjoyed the Legend of Laguna. It's impressively floral which seems to temper the bitterness.
I was tickled to see a soft pretzel on their bar menu. Fun! Of course, I had to order it. It came with a large grain mustard and a spicy cheese sauce.
And when Jake mentioned, to our waiter, that the IPA was a little too bitter for his tastes, he brought us a taster of the Citra IPA which had 20 fewer IBUs than the Legend of Laguna. Nice guy and nice beer.
I think I'll squeeze in one more craft beer tonight! Stay tuned...
