I love a good beer. It’s one of my favorite things. Sitting with a few friends, enjoying a really good beer and a really good conversation, at any time of the year. Over the past couple of years I’ve been really enjoying the dark, full flavored, character rich beers.
Last night involved sharing in a couple of different craft beers available here in Peterborough. First, for dinner we shared a growler of ’8 or better’, which is available from the Publican House Brewery in Peterborough for the next month or so.
They describe it as “a Belgium style trippel made with Abbey Malt and two row malted barley. Hops include Sazz, EKG and Perle all of which are sourced from Europe. The yeast was acquired from White Labs and is used by two traditional Trappist Breweries. 8.1%” I describe it as “delicious,” and “so good I’ll have another”.
Following a quick planning meeting for Ride for Africycle 4.0 — we’re still accepting new riders so sign up now — and a plate full of warm freshly baked cookies, we headed downtown for a pint(s) at the Olde Stone. If you’ve never been there, you must go.
They make fine beers on site, with a variety which would appeal to anyone in attendance. Last night I sampled their seasonal — Anniversary Ale, and the old standby, the Or Dubh Stout. So good.
These are just a couple more reasons why I love Peterborough.
