Logs for this venue

Yeasty/buttery, light Belgian spice. Golden and sweet.
Draft
Really unhappy smell, like rubber tubing. If you get past that it’s more or less a Blue Moon underneath.
Draft
Somewhat flat, starts hoppy and bitter, lightly tangy yeast and finishes with a buttery cereal mellowness.
Draft
Similar flavor to Pumking, custard and pastry. Maybe slightly more fruit and a darker, more caramel flavor. Slightly bitter finish.
Draft
Fragrant, pleasantly sweet, buttery. Very light bitterness and finishes with an appealing, aftertaste.
Draft
Still quite spicy. Still very good. Don't drink this at the beginning of a flight.
Draft
Juicy, clear stone fruit, only mildly sour. More on the juice than funk side, light cereal sweetness to close. Faint salt on the lips afterward.
Draft
Just a taste. Very lightly carbonated, almost cake-like. Light bubblegum and buttery notes. Very mild finish.
Draft
Pleasant dark lager. Roast barley at the forefront, finishes slightly buttery and moderately bitter.
Draft
It gets a little ding because it's Nitro, and I think that takes away from the flavor balance. Sweet and light with mild coffee notes. This is still awfully pleasant to drink. It had the advantage of tempering the stronger notes of the other beers in the flight too.
Nitro Draft
Tart, very tart. Gummy in the back of the throat. Faint melon that grew stronger over time, especially after a sip of the Black House. My memory of this out of the bottle was fonder, but this was still decent.
Draft
Yup, still more hoppy than anything else. Like a light IPA more than even a typical IPL flavor.
Draft
Jibes with what I wrote last time, although perhaps not as strongly pronounced in any direction.
Draft
Very, very sweet. Maybe too sweet? Hard to tell with some of the other beers, but this seemed a bit blunt. Slight cherry wood, sweet bourbon. Otherwise mellow.
Draft
Slightly funky blonde saison with Belgian spice. Fruit flavor is round and believably strawberry (without tasting fake, thank goodness!). It wasn't as well-balanced as the Stoup, but it was a nice beer, second best in the flight.
Draft
Very solid hefe, lots of banana and light clove spice. A very balanced flavor; I don't know that I would have noticed this normally but coupled with some very unbalanced beers this seemed glowingly good.
Draft
Super-fake orange creamsicle flavor tacked onto a light golden ale. Smells like candy. At first I was hoping it would actually taste like orange instead of nondescript citrus notes, but this is certainly too far in the other direction.
Draft
This tastes nothing like any other California Common I've had. It's primarily a fruit-hoppy beer with an amber hue and flavor. Not an IPA, but maybe a malt-bomb hoppy pale. It tasted a bit like a little sibling of Brown Shugga.
Draft
Yams and chilies in this beer; neither comes through very distinctly but add up to a mellow, medium-bodied, sweetish porter with a bit of a smoky lick on top.
Draft
Slight honey graham opening. Pleasant, biscuity flavor, but finishes quite bitter, and together with the somewhat flat texture added up to a "meh."
Draft
Very lightly banana with very few other Belgian characteristics... Some top bitterness and cereal funk. A really nice beer.
Draft
Just sweet enough that is tasty. Malty. Balanced.
Draft
This is good but I'm getting kinda tasted out.
Draft
Tastes like danger. If danger was a wet boiled peanut wearing an Alex Trebek wig. Weaksauce!
Draft
I kinda like this dryness, but then again it's kinda plain.
Draft
I wanted to like this but it's the things that aren't ginger that Ms alle this kinda bleh.
Draft
So I was really looking forward to this but it just tastes weird. Too sweet? Something. I dunno.
Nitro Draft
Okay, I get the Coriander white peppercorn thing that Mike mentions, but I don't believe went fruit or tart. So, it's more like a wheat, except that I get some sweet matrix that reminds me of a marzen.
Draft
Are you gonna' log that? Are you gonna' log that? Are you gonna' log that? Yea! I AM! Ooh more gingery than the last two ginger beers I had--the rye helps.
Draft
This is like a very clean kolsh, with this strong core of "buttery" cream and hints of honey. Like that lovely flavor with some sort of huge cream soup that you shouldn't easy because it will give you an instant heart attack.
Draft
Ipa mixed with the milk leftover from a bowl of frosted flakes, only better because it is almond milk and it hasn't been sitting out for more than an hour or two.
Bottle
Wow. It is like nuts. Like those red nuts you get at fairs and carnivals. Dry Spanish peanuts. Actually this is really pretty good.
Draft
I rather like this, though it is the sort of sour that makes your stomach hurt. Like that Illinois beer set that I bought a few months back. From Destihl. The Synchopathic Sour, actually.
Draft
Tastes like sour patch powder as a beer, minus any fruit flavor.
Draft
Fresh, sweet scent. Flavor is spicy sweet. Like nutmeg and coriander combined.
Draft
More shot taste buds. Like water root tea that's gone just a little bad.
Draft
Sour lemonade infused with socks and Roy's sour-eww-face tears. No hint of ginger.
Draft
My taste buds are shot, unfortunately. I only taste yeasty water.
Draft
Murky, with a long term funky aftertaste like rotting leaves. It really catches me in the back of the throat and doesn't make me want to keep drinking.
Draft
Can't taste the coconut. Kind of an insipidly sweet porter.
Draft
Light, clear, really more like a cider than a beer.
