Twin Peaks Restaurant and Brewery, San Antonio, TX

I stopped in at Twin Peaks Restaurant and Brewery in San Antonio, Texas for a quick bite and a beer.  On the server’s recommendation I tried the Dirty Blonde American White Ale.  Twin Peaks boasts of the temperature they serve their beer.  Very cold.  I have often heard serving beer very cold disguises the taste.  Well, although I’ve never said anything bad about a beer to date on my blog, let me just say this beer was not my favorite.  I did not finish it.  It was very cold and refreshing to some extent, though.  The quesadilla I ordered was good.

New South Brewing in Myrtle Beach South Carolina is so cool that I stopped twice, once in 2012 and once in 2013.  Both times I stopped with my family and enjoyed the tour.  During the tour the owner and brewer gave in depth descriptions of the entire operation.  And they also shared tastes of several beers along the way.  This is definitely a cool diversion during vacation in Myrtle Beach.  The White Ale is a Belgian wheat ale that is perfect for the beach – light and crisp.  The Nut Brown Ale is a rich malty and caramelly flavored beer which is a smooth and satisfying.  I’ve purchased numerous six-packs of both to bring home and enjoy and share with friends.  And, I look forward to future visits to Myrtle Beach and New South Brewing.
