Well, it was a Saturday afternoon and rather than wash dishes at the Cafe and I decided it was time to taste-test a few of the beers I hadn't sampled before.
Saugatuck Brewing company provided the beer at the front. Don't let the lack of foam at the top fool ya...I sipped most of it off. Good taste...crisp.
Beer in the middle is definitely better than middle-of-the-road. Breakfast Stout...a double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout from Founders Brewing out of Grand Rapids, MI. My pouring was perfect for me...since it's the foam I'm looking for. This beer goes perfect with another little treat at the Cafe...brownie bites. While I avoided the double dipping during the tasting, I highly recommend you try it...
Last but not least...the Golden Cap saison ale from New Holland Brewing...farmhouse ale brewed with spelt, an ancestor to wheat. Interesting taste...spicey. What catches the eye with this beer is the label. Fans of the Wizard of Oz will recognize the flying monkey...no yellow brick road here, just a field of spelt and a winged monkey apparently looking for a cold brew.
So that's beer at the Cafe...at least three of them. On the First Friday of every month we're open late with music, beer and wine. About a dozen bottle beers to choose from .... and we'll uncork any bottle of wine as long as you're willing to take the bottle to the bottom.
Looking to add some tap beer to the line-up sometime in June and a little bit more...you'll have to stop in and check it out.
