As I mentioned in this post, J and I went to Square One Brewery and Distillery in Lafayette Square on Saturday afternoon. We had eaten a big lunch (late lunch since I was out ice skating with my little) so we went just to try their beverages although their food menu, with lots of local food, looked great!
I got a beer sampler because I was unfamiliar with their beers (which they brew on site) and so many of them looked tasty. I tried the following beers (from right to left):
- Keller Double Pilsner: my favorite of the sampler: a little bit bitter and hoppy but with a smooth finish
- Park Avenue Pale Ale: my second favorite of the sampler. A little less smooth than the Keller pilsner
- Bavarian Weizen: the description said it would have a hint of clove and banana flavors. I definitely tasted the cloves but the bananas was pretty light compared to some other hefeweizens I've tried.
- Light Squared: a beer they touted as a great introduction to micro brews for those unfamiliar with them
The glasses all had their logo printed on them.
J tried a gin cocktail: gin on the rocks with an olive and twist of lemon. I tried a small taste of it as well but I am not a big fan of liquor so it tasted mainly like lighter fluid to me. J assured me it was better than that!
Overall, it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon together and we will definitely be back to try their food soon!
Have you been to any good breweries lately? Do tell!
