morning coffee

(no subject)

There's a restaurant I go to about once a week that stocks 150 different beers from around the world, with an emphasis on local microbreweries. After flipping through their menu recently, I decided I should be a little more adventurous and try a different beer each time I'm there. I started with Hop Head, an India pale ale made by Tree Brewing in Kelowna, BC. It had a good head and a strong hop flavour, as might be expected from the name. I'd order it again. I want to try their Thirsty Beaver and Cutthroat beers, too. Yeah, I'm mainly going for interesting names at this point. Last night I tried Midnight Sun Espresso Stout, made by Yukon Beer in Whitehorse. Their website describes it as "fine as frog’s hair, full bodied yet smooth, rich with coffee aromas and flavours without ever losing sight of the fact that it’s beer", which sounds about right. It went quite nicely with my yellowfin tuna steak.
