Every single Sunday since October 2010, Steve and I have gone to the Tremont Taphouse for brunch and sometimes/many times have stayed for dinner. This is the story of our lives.
When we wake up on Sundays, we read the paper, have some cereal, drink some coffee, maybe exercise, and then head to the bar. The rest of the day is devoted to the art of drinking and whatever goes. Some days we stay a few hours, have some brunch, drink some beers, and then head out for other venues or our couch. Some days we stay until night fall. Tonight was a night fall kind of day.
The good news is that it is still early enough for me to write this and hang out on the couch for a few hours before bed. Mondays can be fairly rough following those type of nights. Since this Monday will be the first Monday where I have to work since June, I thought I would take it a bit easy. So, I decided to try a Phin and Matt’s.
Southern Tier Phin and Matt’s Extraordinary Ale
Pale ales are difficult to brew in my opinion. Since there isn’t a ton of flavor, you have to do it right. Southern Tier did just that with this beer. It was crisp, clean, and fresh. This is a beer that I could drink all day and really enjoy. There was a slight hop presence at the end that helped make this beer move from an average Pale Ale to a stand out one. I would definitely order this beer again, especially on a summer day when all I have plans to do is relax and simply enjoy a beer or two.
