yes! Dietrich's Meats! Well I will definitely try more Saucony's then. Try the Carton Panzenella - well.. I thought it was good. It didn't growler well but a pint is swell!
I could use a nice lager right now... horse show today - then I was painting for the 4H fair. I really wish there could be a beer tent at the 4H fair. Why can't we get our priorities straight here like the UK?
We always get growlers these days and Weyerbacher - our everyday home beer is great bottled but Dogfish head just seems to consistently blow it away from tap. I think maybe we're trying to like Weyerbacher... we have been trying to visit the brewery all Summer but just have to speed by. We seem to be living out 78 - I'm so not a fan of 78 --
Speaking of which -- I was trying to get to the fact I also tried the Saucony Kutztown lagerbier - it was nothing special on tap I'd love to like it. What's the butcher out there in Kutztown just off 78? I love going there... our local butcher just retired. 82 and he thinks he deserves a little time off now. Mareska's - I cannot believe they're gone now. My husband was seriously considering apprenticing under Emil Mareska. anyhow -- beer and meat -- I digress ANYHOW - I want to try more Saucony stuff.
Then Carton's Boat beer was also on tap and that was yawnsville.
yes...Nik's food was to laugh -- and they themselves said the biergarten was mostly just a smoking area
The flavored beer - like a Maple beer -- I somehow have grown out of them I had that Creme Brulee beer the other day and it was like drinking hazelnut coffee -- it was just wrong to my taste buds. I'm anxious I'm not going to like pumkin ales this season.
At Nik's we must have been in the salted beer mood. I had the hintochino plum ale -- that was extremely cool. Brother-in-law had the Carton Panzanella. We got a growler of the Panzanella for home. As salty beers go I liked both. The guys liked the Carton better but I think it was partially a locavore thing on their parts. My husband got the BerlinerWeisster I think -- it was a sour beer - anyhow it was like a riesling wine -- it was very good once you got over the shock. My sister got the lambic
