Val and I did some hiking recently and found a trail that at one point, had a pretty steep incline. It was also incredibly muddy. Like, getting water and mud inside the vents of my shoes. Next time, I’ll take my hiking shoes that don’t have vents.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Eight & Sand Beer Co. is a full production brewery and tasting room featuring 20 taps. All beer is made on premise in the brewhouse seen right through the windows behind our 40-foot bar. Our tasting room has a rustic industrial style that feeds right off of our train brand. Sitting in our beer garden or even at our bar you can hear the occasional train go by just a few buildings away.”
Random: The brewery itself was spacious and the staff was incredibly friendly.
The beer poured with a two finger, off white head that dissipated quickly. It left limited lacing on the glass. The body was a bright pink color and clear and had a lot of visible carbonation. The nose started with a lot of raspberry extract and a touch of lactose as well. The taste was raspberry extract dominant as well and there wasn’t lactose in the taste. There was a hint of grass, but that was it. The body was medium thickness with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with raspberry. The beer was alright and definitely had some raspberry flavor, but not much else. I wouldn’t have this one again.
