I stopped in at the Fairhope Brewing Company in Fairhope, Alabama and enjoyed the Painted Black IPA. This beer has all of the deep rich color and texture of a stout and all of the intense hop flavor of an IPA. Definitely worth the trip.
I stopped in at the Dangerous Man Brewing Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I tried the Matchbox Coffee Porter which was a delicious cool-weather beer with flavors of coffee and chocolate. This was a delightful beer for relaxing and spending some time at the tap room just hanging out.
