I stopped in 12 Gates Brewing Company in Williamsville, New York to try their beers. After consulting with the bartender I learned that their West Coast IPA is their flagship. Despite being somewhat bored with IPAs I gave it a try. I’m glad I did. It was really good. And, if I were going to have an IPA this is one I’d want to have. Thoroughly enjoyable. Wonderfully hoppy but not overboard. And, not resiny like some IPAs. Delicious!
I stopped in at the Buffalo Brewpub in Williamsville, New York for lunch. Their Buffalo Chicken Salad was the best I’ve ever had. Surprise, Surprise. Buffalo Chicken in Buffalo. And I can see why their Amber Ale is their flagship. Its delicious. Many Amber Ales can tend to be blah. This has flavor. It is malty and a little hoppy. Perfect balance. Just a bit of additional spice flavor to give it some backbone. I loved it.
