We have a new Brewery in town, it opened on October 5th and its called Tin Bridge Brewing Co, located at 487 East main St Westfield MA. It occupies a building that has been a restaurant with several different names for many years. My visit was on Saturday 14th, and it was quite busy with almost every seat taken along with a food truck outside their big overhead backdoor, they also have a couple free play video games and other games for kids and adults. I did their predetermined 5 sampler board, which was not disappointing. I will post my write ups on each of them below. I would like to say the session IPA was like high test in flavors and bitterness best I’ve had so far for a session. Prices are on the moderate side as you can see in the picture of what’s on the tap list and sizes of pour.
The Grip session IPA pours yellow with good head and sliding lacing. Nose of citrus and fruit aromas. Taste is big on bitterness that lingers with a grapefruit and melon flavors. Very frigging good at 5%.
Radio Metal pours yellow with short head and sliding lacing. Nose of malt. Taste is mouth puckering of malt and hop flavors and bitterness. Very frigging good at 6.2%.
Mosaic pours hazy yellow with short head and sliding lacing. Nose of citrus and fruit maybe? Taste is big on mango and citrus flavor with a gentle bitterness that lingers. Very frigging good 7.5%.
Brown is Down pours brown with short head and sliding lacing. Nose of rich dark roasted malt aromas. Taste is wet of dark malt and a porter flavor? Very good 5.8%.
Porter Pounder pours black with short head and sliding lacing. Nose of rich dark malt aromas. Taste is wet of dark malt and a semisweet porter mouth flavor. Very good 5.2%.
