I stopped in at Moon River Brewing Company in Savannah, Georgia for dinner and a beer. I started with the Boo Hag Black IPA which was a good black IPA. Refreshing, drinkable, hoppy and delicious. For dinner I enjoyed shrimp and sausage creole which was delicious. And I finished the evening with Taterlicious sweet potato beer which was good. I think I was looking for more flavor in this beer but it was smooth and mild. the glass rimmed with honey and brown sugar was tasty.
I stopped in at Fossil Cove Brewing Company in Fayetteville, Arkansas and enjoyed the Blizzle Black IPA. I also tasted the Paleo Ale, La Brea Brown and IPA #3. These are all enjoyable beers. And, the brewery had a nice crowd of craft beer enthusiasts which made the atmosphere really cool. This is a great place to visit. This brewery was one of my stops on the Fayetteville Ale Trail which I highly recommend for those who love craft beer and are in the Fayetteville area.
I stopped in at the Apple Blossom Brewing Company in Fayetteville, Arkansas and enjoyed a taste of their Armstrong APA, Mockingbird Black IPA and Applewood Stout. I enjoyed them all. I found the Applewood Stout to be especially smooth and creamy. I’d go back just for the stout. This brewery was one of my stops on the Fayetteville Ale Trail which I highly recommend for those who love craft beer and are in the Fayetteville area.
I really enjoyed stopping in at the Broad Ripple Brewpub in Indianapolis, Indiana. The atmosphere feels like an authentic English pub which I tried to capture in the photos. It felt really cozy and I was wishing I had been there with friends. When it was time to select a beer to try, I chose the Black Eye P. A. which the bartender recommended. What an excellent choice. This was a delightful combination of hoppiness and rich roasted maltiness. Excellent beer.
I stopped in at The Granary ‘Cue & Brew in San Antonio, Texas for dinner. I ordered pulled pork for dinner which was out of this world! I enjoyed their IPA which was a nice mixture of malt and hops, not too over the edge. And, I enjoyed their Black IPA which was like a stout and an IPA combined. Rich, malty, sweet, and hoppy all in one beer. I ate at the bar and enjoyed the chalk drawings on the wall:
The Granary is located in the old Pearl Brewery section of San Antonio. Pearl is a food and culture center in San Antonio and is located on the northern part of the Riverwalk for those ambitious enough to trek roughly two and a half miles from the downtown Riverwalk area.
I stopped in at the Carolina Brewery in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for lunch. The turkey bacon wrap was served with chips and made for a nice meal. I enjoyed a Black IPA which was every bit IPA and every bit dark beer all rolled into one. I also tasted the Funky Monk Belgian Dubbel which was smooth through and through.
I stopped in at the Fairhope Brewing Company in Fairhope, Alabama and enjoyed the Painted Black IPA. This beer has all of the deep rich color and texture of a stout and all of the intense hop flavor of an IPA. Definitely worth the trip.
