One sentence Brewery Summaries
« on: November 27, 2017, 10:14:05 PM »
Found out about Jeff Alworths blog (Thanks Denny), and have been catching up. I kind of like the idea of a 1 sentence summary of breweries. I'd like to hear about some of your local places:

Riggs (Urbana, IL)-German beer if they made it with corn
Triptych (Savoy, IL)-NEIPA, but in Central IL
Obed & Isaacs (Peoria, IL)-Beer in a beautiful old church
Destihl (Bloomington-Normal, IL)-Mostly sour beer
New Belgium (Fort Collins, CO)-Great place to hang out while drinking flagship beers
Tangle Root (Ottawa, IL)-The nicest brewpub I've been in in a very small town (It has an approximately 3 mile long marble bartop)

I guess I extracted that out from the article a bit:
Harpoon "If you don’t want a second pint, that’s not a beer we’re likely to make."
or

"You’re in a bar. French guy next to you says he’s in the US to sample beer. He points to three names and asks you to tell him briefly about them. In 1-2 sentences, how would you describe: 1) Sam Adams, 2) Lagunitas, 3) Deschutes?"

Sam Adams - In Boston, Lager tastes like a Pale Ale

Lagunitas - Spanish for Heineken

Deschutes - Its a pond AND a river

That came narrowly close to making me LOL at work. Brilliant, and so true  ;D ;D ;D

I love the idea for this thread.  Nice work.

In my own local little area:

PetSkull (Manitowoc, WI) - The one, the only, microbrewery in town, even though some say there's another one.
Courthouse Pub (Manitowoc, WI) - Great if you love stale extract and exhorbitant prices.

Expanding to the rest of Wisconsin:

Lakefront - Mecca of the State and for good reason.
Titletown - A little bit of everything and it's all good.
Noble Roots - Cute little joint.
Ahnapee - Even cuter littler joint, literally in a garage -- fortunately on tap everywhere.
Karben4 - Let Lady Luck smile upon thee.
Ale Asylum - Mmm... hops...
3 Sheeps - Best place on the big Lake.
New Glarus - You wish you could get some, but no worries -- overrated.
Hinterland - Would you have any Grey Poupon?
Moosejaw - Marty Moose!  Marty Moose!  Marty Moose!  Heh, heh, that's me!
Central Waters - Strong dark bourbony specialists.
Capital - German lager specialists.
Stillmank - Fruit specialists.
O'so - Stick with Night Train -- or wait -- is it Night Rain?  Can't make up their minds.
Sprecher - The food is good.  The beer...
Grumpy Troll - So that's why he's grumpy.

Okay, maybe I should get back to my day job now.

Cheers all.
Dave
