First day of summer and a hot one the Badassbeerwife and I stopped for one at the Tavern restaurant Westfield before their closing. The place was doing well with patrons and the owner John was there. I got to say a few words to my favorites Chris and Judy along with Mark who orders the special brews. I had asked him when he would fill the new 7 taps and he told me within the next couple of weeks. I tried to talk him into one of them for a stout but he said they don’t sell well but I asked him to take a try! They are having a release party for Westfield River Brewing IPA on Monday the 25th. We then came home to split a big bottle of a new Belgian brew I got the other day, and it’s hard to say which one stood out the most to me both where great but I would say the wife!
IPA pours yellow with good head and lots of sticky lacing. Nose of grapefruit with pine earthy note to it. Taste is more on an earthy side with nice hop mouth to it, very good! On tap at Tavern Restaurant Westfield 6/21/12.
Spine Tingler golden Belgian style triple pours yellow with great head and sliding lacing. Nose is all Belgian with that light malt and yeast smell. Taste is big time Belgian with a great mouth feel. Very Good at 8.5% 22oz bottle 6/21/12.
