My wife and I were finally able to stop by Lazy Monk Brewery a couple of weeks ago. The beer was amazing, and the brewer was a nice guy as well.
The highlight for me was the Bohemian Dark Lager. I had been waiting to sample this dark concoction for a few years. It did not disappoint. Malty, some toffee and cocoa notes, and did I say malty? Just the right body, and smooth. Brought a four pack of tall boys home, and drank them Too quickly. On tap I got a slight roasty note, but did not get that in the can. Overall, this is my ideal beer.
My wife's favorite was the Pilsner. Nice and hoppy with a good bite at the end. Fantastic.
I also had the Maibock, and loved the malt profile. Wish I didn't have to drive a few hours after the visit so I could down a liter of this.
Leos was kind enough to give me a taster of the Bier de Garde, and the Keller pivo. Some nice spicey notes, and a full body on the Bier de Gatde. I could drink a lot of this in the lovely Wisonsin summer. Loved the aroma on the Keller.
I cannot wait for the new location. It looks like it going to be a mighty nice place. I am going to stop by as often as possible. Hopefully we will get the cabin in Minnesota fixed up, so that this becomes a yearly stop.
Lastly, I got to meet one of my brewing heroes. It was so much fun to visit the brewery, and I got a nice little tour of the brewing setup as well. It was great getting to meet Leos, and there is nothing like a good conversation with a good beer. A wonderful time. I look forward to the next visit.
