Logs for this venue

Pungent wood-sap IPA. Good flavors but quite bitter.
Draft
There's probably a decent pale ale here underneath but the whole thing is overwhelmed by an oil slick quality to the dry hoppping. Finishes bitter, unpleasant not because of its level but because of its resemblance to spraying perfume directly on my tongue.
Draft
Woody, strong stout, Slightly sour and boozy, the latter quality not coming through more as pure alcohol than whiskey. Otherwise it was drinkable, but nothing's going to distinguish this beer in a strong field.
Draft
Perfectly decent, coffee-ish brown ale. I wish I could tell you more, but I let this go too long before writing down my thoughts. Much better than the lamb meat pie I had with it.
Draft
I couldn't tell you much about this if I tried... It was just that far into the evening. I remember enjoying it, though, if not quite as much as the Seapine one.
Draft
Mildly sour, mildly salty gose with an appealing lime pucker. Another good beer from Wingman after an initial disappointing stretch.
Draft
A tasty saison of the fruity-funky variety. Lots of juicy strawberry flavors but not much if any mint at all. The flavors were very appealing, though.
Draft
Hearty stout with a mild roast chocolate flavor and a touch of spice on top. This was very nice.
Draft
A cross between roasted malt and espresso.
Draft
Nice citrus, manageable resin.
Draft
Nice dry pear cider. Doesn't taste like apple juice, which is like... 80% likely when trying ciders. Nicely bitter and tart. Real tasty.
Draft
Weird first taste, very wheaty after
Draft
Great biscuit maltiness and body and a crisp finish
Draft
A bit of funk on the nose and good malt, but a touch watery. Lots of yeast presence, mostly tending towards bubblegum.
Draft
Grassy lager, but also candy-sweet on the malt. A bit too much sweetness to really enjoy, honestly, although the rest of the beer wasn't bad.
Draft
Smells like a whiskey shot with a chocolate cream egg whipped into it. Strong but smooth, with a somewhat creamy, pungent finishing sweetness reminiscent of milk chocolate & a lot of late hop bitterness. The tacky, sour aftertaste is an unpleasant minus.
Draft
Odd, almost appley fruit esters. Not very bitter.
Draft
A bit bitter with some citrus
Draft
This wasn't bad at all, but it was very confusing. I couldn't pin down this style at all. On the one hand, it was similar to all the other beers in the flight, but with a slightly off-kilter balance. Maybe that was the buckwheat... but who knows? Maybe one to explore on its own.
Draft
Bready, with some definite hop bitterness and booziness around the edges. Tasty, if not especially memorable.
Draft
A clean, dry ale with a fruity-but-not-citrus character throughout. Not especially IPA-like, in my mind.
Draft
Smell and taste are mainly citrusy, some tropical fruits. Lighter body, hint of bitterness.
Draft
Sweeter pilsner, no spiciness. Great cereal flavors
Draft
Very cereal, not funky sweet like some kolschs
Draft
Dry, clean and crisp with good cereal and pilsner-like bitterness. None of the weird, zesty yeast character that most Kölsches seem to have. The aftertaste is awesome, dry and cider-like.
Draft
I liked this! A light, but characterful blonde ale with noticeable green tea flavors, which (as usual, it seems) mellowed the flavors quite a lot in addition to adding sweetness.
