It took a little Decatur pub and a friend's insistence that I try his beverage to forever change how I viewed beer. Many thanks to The Brick Store Pub, Anthony, and Duchesse de Bourgogne for showing me the light!
So far, my taste in beer tends to favor Belgian styles, white beers, and brown ales. Some of my favorites so far:
- La Folie
I considered thinking long and hard about the last few beers I've had and writing about them in this initial post. I decided against it because I'm too lazy to hunt them all down on BeerAdvocate.com (there's been 20+ new brews to me in the last two weeks) and if they made good impressions, they'll show up later on future Beer Log posts! I will mention that I've tried several breweries new to me lately, and they are Sweetwater Brewing Company in Atlanta, and Green Man Ales, Highland Brewing, and Asheville Brewing Company in Asheville. I can definitely recommend all four breweries (Green Man will likely be our pick to supply the wedding) for having at least 2-3 good recipes.
I'm a very lucky soul to live in Fort Collins, surrounded by several excellent microbreweries!
