I stopped in at Dakota Point Brewing in Rapid City, South Dakota. Rarely do I see Scottish Export and Wee Heavy on the tap list. Both were wonderful. Peat Digger Wee Heavy is rich and caramelly and does have notes of peat in it. Naughty Angus Scottish Export is smooth and delicious. On a cool fall evening these were just perfect.
I stopped in at Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego, California. It’s been nearly ten years since I first stopped in here (predating this blog). It was like visiting an old friend. Great tap room vibe. I enjoyed their Soul Style IPA. Nice and citrusy. Green Flash is well known for their west coast style IPAs. I also wanted to try something different so I tried Old Sharemore Wee Heavy and enjoyed that as well. The caramel and butterscotch really come through. It is rich and malty. The food truck out front was a great source for some garlic parmesan fries that I shared with industry colleagues who were with me. Great stop and great beers.
