I stopped in at Happy Bassett Brewing Company in Topeka, Kansas. I enjoyed every one of the beers in the flight I had. The beer that stood out to me was their Thin Mint Porter. Delicious. Just like the Girl Scout Cookie. It is made from their base Purebread Porter which is also awesome. Chocolate and Mint prevail. Just wonderful.
I stopped in at Norsemen Brewing Company in Topeka, Kansas for a beer. I couldn’t decide so I tried three. The one that really stood out to me was the Nobles Only Red India Pale Lager. I enjoyed the maltiness and the hoppiness of this wonderful beer. Quite a complex brew. Very enjoyable and warming on a cold evening.
I stopped in at Blind Tiger Restaurant & Brewery while in Topeka, Kansas for work. I stopped late one evening after a night flight into town and just missed the kitchen, but the Maibock and some peanuts were a perfect late night meal. The Maibock was everything it should be – strong, malty, filling. The next day I enjoyed their Burnt Ends for lunch along with the Pils Vom Fass Pilsner. Great food and great beer. The pilsner was a great pairing with lunch and it tasted spot on for its style. Great food and great beer.
