Homebrew Party Review
We swung by for a bit on Saturday to see what the party would be like. It was packed like I've never seen the bar area before. We lucked out with 2 seats at the bar and ordered up the award-winner: Witbier. It was very good, smooth, and mildly hoppy with hints of citrus. We both put back 2 glasses easily - maybe they went down extra easy due to the half-price special during the party!
We enjoyed our fill of the complimentary cheese & fruit offerings but never saw any of those elusive chicken skewers for the taking. Those must have gone quickly. The event felt a little clique-y, kind of like we crashed a private party, but we didn't feel unwelcome, just like we weren't "in" on the big party. We asked the bartender who the winning brewmaster was and were able to congratulated the twenty-something guy on the way out. Watch out Budweiser, this young guy knows what he's doing!
We asked the bartender if this winning beer replaced their seasonal blueberry beer and all the bartender said was that they don't have blueberry beer. Wha? Not exactly the answer we were looking for - especially since this is the same bartender that's been there for at least two years. He seemed to be off on another planet during the party, so we let it slide. In a round-about way I guess we got our answer.
Not a bad stop for free cheese & cheap beer if you were already at the Boardwalk but I wouldn't make a special trip just for this.
