On tap at Black Bridge Brewery that you need this weekend:
- Wagonwheel – an American brown ale, beautifully colored – with enticing red highlights – and tasting of late fall. It makes you want to just sit, relax, contemplate. Medium body, a little caramel and some nutty flavors (as in the edible part of a tree, etc., not the street roaming eccentrics). Superb.
- Locomotive – it’s a stout, cuz black beers matter! Deeply dark, heavily roasted, a masterpiece. The Darth Vader of stouts. Seriously, epic music should begin when this is tapped.
Guest taps are available: Mr Pineapple from SanTan (this one is meh, in my opinion, though generally their beers are stellar) and Big Blue Van from College Street in Lake Havasu. This beer seems to be one that has polarized peeps into two camps, the Lovers and the Haters. I love it. A great wheat beer, refreshing, with blue berries. They pull it off magnificently. Three bucks for guest taps, y’all. Come have a drink.
Couple these beers with an uncritical atmosphere and a PERFECT soundtrack for a Friday – Def Leppard radio, the ultimate 80s rock music! – and you will be able to completely decompress from your week of labor!
And be good to your bartenders for the night, Jen and Lee! (Thanks for the tunes, Jen!)
