I mean, I talk with you guys all the time but...
While out on the road for work this week, I found a local micro/potential nano brewery. Catawba Island Brewery in Port Clinton, Ohio. They had a very nice tasting room with very nice people. They also had 9 of their beers on tap. I had the privilege to speak with the assistant brewer while there. I've never had such opportunity. We shared a few ideas and techniques.
The great thing about the visit is that they had a mango/habanero hefe on tap since I am planning on a hab/mango pale ale in June. I got some insight about the habanero addition. I was not a huge fan of the clashing flavor of the habs in the hefe yeast. He agreed that a pale ale could be a more favorable environment for these flavors.
Anyways... This is a good place to stop by if in the area. There were several guys there that had just gotten off Lake Erie from Walleye fishing. They didn't know much about beer. But they had their own beer for the BMC drinkers too called.... "Intentionally Sh!&#*y Lager." I didn't have it, but I thought that was unique.
