Cowtown Brewing Company, Fort Worth, TX

I stopped in at Cowtown Brewing Company in Fort Worth, Texas.  I enjoyed their barbecue very much and it paired nicely with both of the beers I tried.  Their Rhinestone Cowboy Kolsch was delicious, very drinkable and fresh!  Their The Last Kaiser Imperial Marzen Oktoberfest was rich and delicious, malty and hoppy.  I recommend a stop in here if you’re in the Fort Worth area.  Grab a beer and a bite.  Yee Haw!

City Steam Brewery, Hartford, CT

I stopped in at City Steam Brewery in Hartford, Connecticut for dinner and a beer.  It was pretty obvious that I needed to try the Naughty Nurse Amber Ale, their flagship.  And this beer did not disappoint.  A great blend of amber maltiness plus enough hop bite to make it interesting.  And it was delicious paired with their fish tacos.  I also tasted Jungle Crush IPA and Oktoberfest and enjoyed both beers.  I also love the vibe of this historic, restored location in downtown Hartford.  Very walkable from nearly any location downtown.  I welcome the opportunity to return to Hartford and stop in again.

Thomas Hooker Brewery, Bloomfield, CT

I stopped in at Thomas Hooker Brewery Colt Taproom.  It was dinner time and they offer a nice menu with a few items.  The Trio of Tacos was delicious – even the roasted vegetable one!  The beers I tasted all went well with the tacos.  I especially liked the #nofilter IPA.  I’m getting more interested in hazy IPAs these days.  The Oktoberfest was smooth and malty with a hop bite.  Perfect for the season.  And the Milking the Clock milk stout was a tasty, sweet ending to the meal.  Great place to stop in. Glad I did.
