Stopped in at my local neighborhood Belgian Beer Bar … Tripel Brasserie. This is basically my watering hole. Let me know if you want to meet and have a brew there!
The beer selection is excellent, the staff is great, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Oh … the food is excellent too.
But on to the Beer! Today I had a nice Schlafly … This local (regional) brewery is making very good beer — as a matter of fact, their Pumpkin Beer is near the top of the list for best Pumpkin Beers in 2013! (Great to see Selin’s Grove and Southern Tier in the top 10 … those guys are awesome!)
Since I was at a Belgian-style restaurant I had the Tripel from Schlafly.
A nice touch at Tripel … as far as I know there are only a couple of places you can get the Tripel on tap and they have it. This is a very good beer … right in style, goes down smooth … love the crisp hoppy flavor in this one. The right spicy yeast too … very nice!
Recommend a trip to Tripel … you won’t be disappointed!
