An awful brew and an amazing musician.

This weekend, the husband and I decided to try and expand our beer views and give Oskar Blues another try. 

We arrived at the Tasty Weasel. 

Here we were greeted by a tasting room that was actually in the brew house.  This would’ve been cool but it was indeed very warm and loud.  Not my ideal Sunday hangout. 

The Selection

We decided to do a taster set before deciding on what pints we wanted.  This was when trouble began.  The Dale’s Pale Ale and their red were not that bad.  However, we then got the Gubna.  HOLY YUCK!!!  I don’t know if it was the batch or the beer but it was flat up front and then I couldn’t get the aftertaste out of my mouth, the taste of ROTTEN MEAT!!!  It was disgusting and no amount of water from the employee cooler (no bar glasses for water) could make the taste go away.  We quickly settled up and headed out!

This was what was left. Notice the Gubna at the top of the tray.

The only thing that I could get that taste out of my mouth was going to be a Jackman’s from Lefthand!

Heaven in a glass

When we arrived we were greeted by the musical stylings of Scott Von.  He was amazing!  I highly recommend taking a listen on his website (scottvon.com) and then purchasing a CD or two.  How amazing!!  The folky, upbeat sound was not entirely one style and therefore everyone in the tasting room was quiet and enjoying the music. 

He was so very aware of me snapping all kinds of photos!

What a wonderful way to end one of the first fall weekends!

    Hmm. I’m going to a local bar like this tomorrow night. I’ve decided to try something new, too, but hopefully it won’t taste like something died…. Haha! Here’s to being adventurous!
