Went to Steam Bell Brew works in Midlothian, Va for their ‘secret’ opening. They had 3 beers, one sold out before I could try it. Of the 2 I tried,
The “Grisette” saison: very drinkable, lots of flavors. This is the beer I had 2 of! Just a great session beer
The “Time is Money” IPA: great nose, which is one of the things I look for in an IPA. Not bitter, again very drinkable. Would be a great one to introduce people to the style without burning their taste buds. I love IPAs, hop bombs incuded. I still liked this beer. Good flavor, very balanced. But people who say ‘ I don’t like IPAs’ should still try this.
Great place, friendly vibe, neat pictures on the wall. Southside now has a kick ass brewery!
