I stopped in at Prairie Brewpub in Tulsa, Oklahoma to try their beers. The beer I was most interested in is BOMB. This must be the most complex beer I’ve tried and I’ve tried a lot of beers in the last ten years (at over 500 breweries). BOMB is an Imperial Stout aged on espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans and ancho chile peppers. Sipping this fantastic beer is a taste treat. Each of those flavors is present and can be distinguished. Although it sounds like a lot going on, and it is, it tastes fabulous and those flavors complement each other and make for a delicious beer. This was a great way to end the evening.
I stopped in at Elgin Park in Tulsa Oklahoma for lunch and a beer. I enjoyed their Greek Salad and Hey Bitter, Bitter ESB. Nice salad and nice beer.
I stopped in at 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown, Delaware on the way to Bethany Beach, Delaware for family vacation. Several family members tried beers. Baby’s lunch was good. I really loved Gutentart, but I’m somewhat of an outlier enjoying sour beers. Seed Free & Joy was the favorite of beers we tried and we bought a sixpack to bring along for vacation. The tasting room was pretty busy, with one group having pizza delivered to them right there. The outdoor fire pit area looked really cool. I’m looking forward to saving one of the Delaware state map caps for my beer bottle cap map.
