I went to Connecticut to DJ a wedding this summer. Across from my hotel was a restaurant called GW Carson’s Burger Bar. That’s where the bridal party went for the after-party. So I went to have a brew or two with little expectations. Imagine my surprise at the awesome selection of beer they had!
The first brew was Stony Creek (203) IPA. It was 6.15% ABV. There were flavors of malt, pine, and tangerine. It had a light bitterness. It was a great beer!
My second brew was Thimble Island American Ale. It came in at 5% ABV. There were flavors of caramel and grass. In the background, there was a slight apple cider vinegar flavor. As it warmed, that vinegar taste became more prevalent. It wasn’t terrible, but I won’t look for this beer in the future.
The third beer was Back East Porter. It came in 6% ABV. This was really good! There was a light roasted flavor. The body was almost creamy. This was a good beer to end the night.
