I heard that Mr. Pineapple was at SanTan Brewing Company in Chandler, Arizona, so I stopped by to meet him. And, what a pleasant meeting it was. He’s delightful and delicious. This is the first pineapple wheat beer I’ve ever had and it was very tasty – restoring my faith in wheat beers.
I had heard that The Perch Pub and Brewery in Chandler, Arizona was different. Well, that’s an understatement. I’m not sure where to begin. The rescued wild birds are fabulous to watch! That alone in itself is worth the trip. It’s like an exotic bird zoo. Then there’s the food. The fish tacos were the best I’ve ever had. Then there’s the bartender. E is the best bartender ever. He’s awesome. And the whole reason I stopped is the beer. I had a flight: Paleyeah! is a solid pale ale / Desert Blossom Saison is very tasty – one of the best saisons I’ve had and possibly my favorite / Rosemary IPA – if you like rosemary – YES – if not – NO / Belgian Peach – delicious – sweet – peachy goodness / Velocirazter Gose – tart, salty, raspberry refreshing goodness / Stirabout Oatmeal Stout – a happy ending. Very few flights are all good – this one was. Excellent.
