I stopped in at Lamplighter Brewing Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts after a long day of training for a beer. I enjoyed Birds of a Feather New England IPA. A delicious hazy IPA in New England style. And I loved Coquito the Rum Barrel Aged Stout with Coconut on Nitro. Is that enough sensations? Stout – Coconut – Rum – Nitro. WOW!
I stopped in at BEERWORKS Brewing Company in Boston, Massachusetts for dinner and a taste of beers. I enjoyed the Pear and Sprout Salad with Grilled Chicken and also enjoyed a flight of beers. Everything from Pilsner to Porter to Altbier to IPA were very good. The beer that, hands down, captured my attention was the Blue 92 Light American Ale with Maine blueberries. The bartender even tosses a few fresh blueberries in the bottom of the glass. There’s enough blueberry flavor to be significant but not too much to be overpowering. The beer is sweet but not too sweet. It is light and easy to drink. Absolutely delicious!
I stopped in at Vinyl Brewing Company in Hammonton, NJ with industry colleagues. We each enjoyed a flight and some tasters. Everything I tasted I enjoyed. Disrupt the Paradigm Vanilla Porter is delicious (I love vanilla flavor). We all enjoyed each of the beers we tried.
I stopped in at Tun Tavern in Atlantic City for a late snack and beer. Their fried Brussels spouts were tasty and this flight went well with them. The Citra Crush and South Pacific Hop IPA were both nice IPAs. Not too hoppy and very easy to drink. And, both very pairable with a meal.
I stopped in at Garden State Beer Company in Galloway, NJ to try their beers. The fruit inspired options seemed to be calling to me. The Cranberry Ale and the Blue Jersey American Wheat both had just the right amount of fruit flavor without being overpowering. Tasty beers.
