Logs for this venue

Great, balanced blueberry cider. Medium tart, semi dry, very clean flavors.

So. First thing is this doesn't taste like Pineapple, so let's get that out of the way. Past that, this is a super easy-drinking pale with vague tropical fruit flavors and a light finish. Quite nice.
Draft
Sweet banana, honey, faint smoke. Coriander and pepper subtly in the background. Surprisingly yeast-bitter on the finish.
Draft
Pithy IPA but with a hefty hop flavor to match. Pine, cereal and yeast. Lingering bitterness.
Draft
Decent pale, on the resinous, dry side.
Draft
First thing to note is that the oyster is nigh undetectable. Nor is the beer briny in character at all. So that's a bit of a miss. But! For a Gose, this is delicious and light, with a bit of lemon zest, slight salt. Would make a good liquor to base a mignonette to accompany an oyster, at least.

My main impression of these Sticke beers, at least on America, is that they mostly show off alcohol. This tasted strong, and here more than a few hops as well. Caramel, yes, but very dry. I wanted something a little sweeter and a lot more malty.
Draft
Frankly, this wouldn't have been my first choice, but there was nothing else remotely interesting on the tap list this time. Lots of candi sugar in a boozy, somewhat spicy Belgian. There's a lot of piney hop character and finishing bitterness as well, which wasn't what I was looking for. They say this was aged on Madeira and oak... but I couldn't tell at all.
Draft
Has the flavors you'd expect of a winter ale, with a fruity hop character and sweet malt, but rounded out beautifully with wine notes from the pinot noir barrels (while still tasting like beer).
