It took forever, but we finally visited Captain Lawrence. Val is from Westchester County, NY, so we’re up there with some frequency, but never had a chance to visit before. The brewery itself is pretty large and has an indoor and outdoor space. The outdoor space has cornhole, which I love, and has a decent selection of food. If you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth a visit.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “American Sour Ale aged in French Oak Fourdres with New York grown apples sourced locally from Harvest Moon Orchard in North Salem. Bright and acidic, with notes of apple and funk. Enjoy now or lay it down for years to come.”
Random: This season of “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” has a lot of crying it. It’s bordering on annoying.
The beer poured with a thick, pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was very cloudy and yellow. I couldn’t see a lot of carbonation. The nose was filled with funk and oak along with some fruit. The taste was even brighter. It started with a lot of tartness and apples. It quickly went into some oak along with vanilla. It had earthiness as well. The body was medium thickness with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with lots of funk. I bought this beer directly from the brewery during my last visit and I forget how much I paid for it. Either way, this was an outstanding, funky beer.
