Billsburg Brewery by Fly Away

Rik S. is drinking a Fly Away by Billsburg Brewery at Billsburg Brewery

Kinda pineapplee with a spice I can’t quite put my finger on. It wears its hops well in kind of a forward sort of way.

BIRRIFICIO AGRICOLO BALADIN - Baladin Indipendent Italian Farm Brewery by NAZIONALE

Rik S. is drinking a NAZIONALE by BIRRIFICIO AGRICOLO BALADIN - Baladin Indipendent Italian Farm Brewery at DoG Street Pub

A pretty beer with a slight hint of citrus (from the bergamot) in the nose, but no overwhelming fruitiness (I was afraid it might taste like a screwdriver). The coriander comes through only after you swallow. Might have to have another later this week.

Alewerks Brewing Company by Good Luck Irish Stout

Rik S. is drinking a Good Luck Irish Stout by Alewerks Brewing Company at DoG Street Pub

IMHO, stout in a glass should be a place where light goes to die. This ale fits the bill. Not a real chewy stout, but that nitro smoothness and an underlying sweetness make for a very nice experience. Dog Street Pub is a great venue, every town needs one.

The Virginia Beer Company by Free Verse

Not a very robust IPA (to be fair, the brewery’s description says as much) that looks almost like a milkshake and has a sweetness that is not my cup of tea. For a non-IPA drinker, though, it could get them on the turn.

Blue Mountain Brewery by Kölsch 151

I don’t drink a lot of Kolsch, but this is a delightfully refreshing quaff following an hour of walking around in this hot, humid, Virginia summer weather.
