Tyler and I had rounded out our errand-filled Saturday with dinner and drinks at Brewster’s which was right around the corner from home. We wanted to make it a nice, long experience with different foods and beers! We started with beers (only made sense).
Tyler had the River City Raspberry Wheat Ale and I had the Strawberry Blonde Ale. I liked mine
We enjoyed these with the Lobster ad Artichoke Dip
‘But Jen, you done eat seafood!’ you say. Ah, this is true. BUT, alcohol altered my decision and artichoke has my heart..
Next, we split a sample tray. We were able to choose 5 beers and we got a 5 oz. sample of each.
We started with the Flying Frog Lager.
Since I recently have fallen for lagers, I thought this would be great, but Tyler and I agreed it fell short of expectations. (plus, we were coming off our high from the delicious first round).
Next, the Farmer’s Tan White Ale
This was similar to a Blue Moon, but a little lighter in flavor. We both thought it was good.
Third up: the Original lager.
Nope. We didn’t like. Too bitter. Too hoppy. Too not hitting the spot.
Next, Blackfoot Blueberry Wheat Ale. Similar to the raspberry, it had medium body with a sweet finish. We liked.
Last stop: the Hefeweizen.
We both liked this beer. It was light and had a pleasant finish. Once we finished the tray, Tyler decided to have another Hefeweizen, while I opted for the raspberry ale. Perfect to go with the burgers we ordered.
That’s no ordinary burger, my friends. That’s a BISON burger. I’ve never had bison before, and since I was feeling all ballsy, I went for it. And the verdict? Loved. Will definitely be ordering that again. Mmm.
We rounded out the evening with the 5th Harry Potter movie, a Strongbow
And some candles that took 2 screwdrivers and some serious elbow grease to light. Thanks a lot, Ikea.
Great movie (for the fifth time. There’s seriously 8 of them?! Oy vey)
