I stopped in at Last Best Brewing Company in Calgary Alberta Canada. Ever since I’ve been traveling to Canada people keep telling me about poutine. Well, I finally tried it here. I enjoyed it! The bartender recommended their Baltic Porter to accompany it which was a great choice. This beer is dark and rich and heavy and sweet and a great way to end the evening. (in a good way)
I stopped in at The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in Charlotte, North Carolina. The atmosphere is German bierhall and biergarten. It’s a great place. I tried a flight of beers. The Fat Boy Baltic Porter was just as I had hoped. Smooth, malty, caramelly. The Copper Amber Ale is a great mix of malty smoothness and a little bite. I was pleasantly surprised with the Hornet’s Nest Hefeweizen. This was crisp and enjoyable. Finally, the Radler, a mix of Captain Jack Pilsner and Sprite (lemon soda) reminded me of the Radler I had in Munich decades ago. Delicious!
