The next brewery we went to was Tributary. This was in a strip mall and seemed to be quite crowded when we entered. When we took a seat at the bar, we noticed that we were probably the only people there without an AARP card. The space was open, with plenty of seating and appeared to be dog-friendly as well. We tried a sampler paddle here as well. The beers were only okay at best. There was not one (including their collaboration with Earth Eagle) that was easy for me to get down. There weren’t any games at this brewery either, but even if they did, it was obvious we wouldn’t be staying long. We finished the paddle and headed to dinner.
Style: American Blonde Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A new series showcasing collaborations at Hill Farmstead with friends, this one brewed with Ryan Merithew of Siren Brewing. Low abv, hoppy blonde ale (3.75%) with Lady Grey tea; dry hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Centennial.”
Random: This was the beer that I had Val order so I could review it.
This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left the glass covered in lacing. The body was a cloudy yellow color with light carbonation visible. The nose was light with yeast and some spice. I didn’t pick up the tea in the nose. The taste was equally light, but had more depth. I got notes of lemon, white peppercorn and tea. The yeast and spice were present, but very subtle. It had a light body with moderate carbonation. It finished quickly with lemon and tea. This was a really nice, easy-drinking beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.
