I stopped in at Saints Row Brewing Company in Rockville, Maryland to taste their beers and pick up a growler or two for Thanksgiving. Neon Suede New England IPA was just perfect to serve with dinner. A nice, hazy IPA; a little fruity, a bit hoppy, easy to drink. And, the coffee milk stout was perfect to serve with dessert. Both made for a memorable Thanksgiving.
I stopped in at 7 Locks Brewing in Rockville, Maryland. My daughter recently moved in to a condo within a couple of blocks from this great brewery. We stopped in so we could try their beers and so I could buy a couple of growlers for my daughter. We had a great time. The beers were tasty. My wife even liked the Honey Ale and she doesn’t like beer. My daughter and her boyfriend liked the IPA. I really liked the Farmhouse Ale. I also really liked the Coffee Stout. The other brews were tasty as well, but these were our favorites. We bought growlers of IPA and Farmhouse Ale. The growler beers wend well with some Chinese takeout we brought back to her new place for dinner. 7 Locks Brewing has a great vibe – warehouse feel – and my wife, who isn’t as in to breweries really liked it. With our daughter now living close by we are looking forward to stopping in often. A few other details. The bartender that served us was really nice and really patient. The brewery also had a feed truck outside – we didn’t try any of the food but it looked good.
