Two new breweries opened in my Town. How about yours?

Just went to the second grand opening in a month for a micro brew in Kalispell Montana and it was fun. Got some real good beer, a Rye Pale Ale, a coffee Blonde, and a Blackberry Sour. Brought home some additional Rye, via a 32 ounce growler. They had tacos there also which were good also. Good times indeed. How about your home town?

I love brewery tours, especially the ones that give free samples during the tour. We would take weekends and hit them all sometimes, it was a great afternoon. Or, so I had to be told the following day...

I'm kinda sick of breweries opening up, mainly because Maine is bursting at the seams with new microbreweries; there's a new one opening every few months, it would seem. There are two or three new ones in the downtown area of my town, plus one restaurant whose brewery has exploded to statewide service over the past couple of years. There's also another statewide staple just a mile or two away. Oh, and another new one set up shop near the mall area within the past year.

The novelty has worn off, although the microbrew scene is extremely strong. My biggest issue - and this is still a national trend - is the tendency toward IPAs. I mean, I get why so many upstarts rely on them (you can fuck 'em up and still make them drinkable by making the errors with hoppiness), but I'm tired of IPAs!

I know, but there are plenty of beers that are not IPA's, no IPAs in my consumption tonight. A Rye Pale Ale, I love rye especially in beer form, it could have been stronger but was nice and spicy. The Coffee Blonde, a wheat beer, was nicely done and the Blackberry Sour finished it off on a nice sweet note. Really enjoyed it here. We will have 9 micro's in the Flathead valley by summers end. Variety is nice.

I fought the IPA trend for a while but I eventually caved. I don’t seek them out necessarily but I do enjoy them when they’re offered. As for breweries, there are a lot in CT including Two Roads in my home town. I live one town over these days but my brothers, our Dad, and I will head down there for special events from time to time. I don’t drink nearly as much beer as I used to but I do love having these breweries all around. The beer is almost always good and it’s cool to see the local restaurants serving local beers instead of the standard generics.

One of the other things we do every year in the fall is go to the Carolina Renaissance Fair. Some of the local microbreweries are featured there so I get to enjoy the Fair (it's really a great time, I cannot recommend it enough) and a variety of fine micro-brews. It's a great combination.
