Hopping Along

I just tried an excellent ale last night at The Growler & Gill called Seeking Alpha Triple IPA, from Captain Lawrence.  I had it on draft but I brought a bottle home.  Very rich with the hops in balance with the malt, and quite strong (10% ABV).  You should be able to find that nearby, I would think.  I also tasted one Evil Twin and had another, the taste was of Ryan and the Beaster Bunny (god knows where they came up with that one!), and I had 12 oz of Evil Twin Falco IPA.  Started fairly small but grew as I drank more, quite satisfactory by the end.

Over the weekend, Janet and I visited The Little Pub in Ridgefield CT.  It’s very much worth a visit. Here is last summer’s beer menu:


In addition to their main menu they have daily/weekly specials and reserve beers.  Janet had an Ommegang Glimmerglass, which was really special.  I started off with Deviant Dale’s IPA (from Oskar Blues), and finished off with a bottle of Ommegang Take it Black Stout, one of the Game of Thrones series.  It’s quite good, though not as great as the Blood and Fire Red Ale that I had on draft.
