Nine Band Brewing Company, Allen, TX

I stopped in at Nine Band Brewing Company in Allen, Texas.  i had heard about this place last night at Lockhart Smokehouse.  Lockhart Red Ale is brewed by Nine Band Brewing.  I also learned later this evening that the beers featured at Two Row Grill are also brewed by Nine Band Brewing.  The most unique beer i had tonight was the Candy Corn Scream Ale.  This is a cream ale, which can often be sweet, with extra sweetness and flavor of candy corn.  It was pretty sweet but also tasty.

I stopped in at Legal Draft Beer Company in Arlington, Texas.  I enjoyed a great flight of beers.   Nowhere But Texas is a solid lager.  Easy drinking.  Smash and Grab is a solid IPA and Hazeas Corpus is a solid Hazy IPA.  Amicus is a really nice Mosaic IPA.  Old Fashioned Justice is a barrel aged IPA.  I’ve had a lot of barrel aged beers.  Yeah, this one is special.  Really special.  Tartfeasor is a nice Berliner Weisse.  Tart.  Crisp. Clean.  Backberry Tart is a really nice Radler with juice and beer – reminds me of the Radler in Munich.  Summer Recess is a Grapefruit Shandy – also gives me the Radler feel – yum – makes me want to cycle 20 miles and come back for more.   Lawktoberfest is a vey smooth malty Oktoberfest – would be great with pretzels – etc.  Legal Holiday is a dark spiced ale and feels right for cooler evenings.  Exhibit M is even richer and a nice dessert replacement.  Yummy Imperial Stout.
