I stopped in at Adelbert’s Brewery in Belgiium – OOPS – Austin, Texas, last night. While I was sampling their beers I sure felt like I was in Belgium. Belgian styles are their passion and it shows in every beer. I especially enjoyed the Tripel B. It was malty and sweet just as a Belgian Tripel should be. And it was strong!. When I mentioned that I was planning to write a blog post, the manager insisted I try every beer on tap. Honestly, each was delicious. Even the tea they brew to cleanse the palate was tasty. I wish it were easier to bring beer on a plane, I’d bring some back for my friends at home. I also wish I had more time to sit back and relax at the outdoor seating area and enjoy the beer but I was on a quick trip in and out of Austin. I highly recommend this brewery – everyone should stop here. I hope to the next time I’m in town – and hopefully for a longer stop!
Uncle Billy’s Brewery and Smokehouse, Austin, TX
I stopped in at Uncle Billy’s Brewery and Smokehouse for dinner and a beer. The brisket, beans and potato salad were delicious and they sure did go down easy with the Imperial Red Ale. Great stop.
Zilker Brewing Company, Austin, TX
I stopped in at the Zilker Brewing Company in Austin, Texas and enjoyed the ESB and the Coffee Milk Stout. The ESB was a solid representation of this style. The Coffee Milk Stout was simply delicious. I enjoyed it so much I had a second sample. I’d come back here just for the stout. Well worth the stop!
Kamala Brewing, Austin, TX
I stopped at Whip In, otherwise known as Kamala Brewing in Austin, Texas. What a place. They have numerous taps of remarkable craft beers from all over the country. They also brew their own beers. I tried the Bitterama ESB which I found to be a very smooth and drinkable beer. Malty and almost sweet. Very nice.
Jester King Brewery, Austin, TX
I stopped in at Jester King Brewery in Austin, Texas today. I’m really glad I made the trip. At the recommendation of the “ID checker” I tried the Ol’ Oi barrel aged sour brown ale. This is definitely a choice that is outside the typical beers I drink. It was excellent. Very light and refreshing with a sour twist to it. Definitely worth the trip!
Black Star Co-op Pub and Brewery, Austin, TX
I stopped in at the Black Star Co-op Pub and Brewery and tasted the Vulcan Rye IPA. This beer alone is worth the trip. Spicy and tasty.
North by Northwest Restaurant and Brewery, Austin, TX
I stopped in at North by Northwest Restaurant and Brewery in Austin Texas and enjoyed the Asian Salad with some of the Hey Joe Coffee Stout. Both were delicious. Great restaurant. Great brewery.
