Hell’s Beer


Holly shit is all I can say for my visit to Smith’s Billiards for their Stone triple threat night on Thursday that started at 6pm, along with bike night and free concert at Stearns Square, there were motorcycles packed in for a good two block radius. Smith’s was almost packed but I found some room and ordered a four sampler of the three Stone brews along with a had to try stout by Ballast Point called Sea Monster, all for of my 4oz samples were excellent and Josh that bartends this night would give me a 4oz sample of the Bruery sour stout called Tart of Darkness which was the most sour and tart brew I have had so far. I would finish up the evening there with a pint of Founders Red’s Rye PA and check out the concert and motorcycles on my way home.
