I got antsy seeing winter is coming on and camping has been over for almost some 2 months or more. On Saturday I visited Hitchcock Brewing in Whately MA. For the first time that it’s been opened this year. To find that finding it would be an adventure with just a sign like people running for some town election would put on some one’s lawn, and then some 1000 feet off Christian Lane just past a lama farm and a couple of homes. Now that I’m writing this I should have taken pics of the farm, but sorry about that just imagine that I did. The tasting was free, and you could try all 9 brews from a 2-oz. plastic cup, and then purchase cans or a growler fill to go. The brews I tasted, and pictures are below.
Crossover Golden Ale Very good ale.
Single Bottom IPA Big on citrus aromas and flavors. Nice bitterness to it.
Double Bottom IPA nose of faint citrus. taste is big and over whelming of bitter aromatic flavors. very frigging good
