I had just gotten back from a run and Novak was swinging by to drop something off. She mentioned that she was going out for beers with our friend Rob. I promptly invited myself, rinsed, changed, and was out the door in less then 15 min.
We headed to Rhodeside Grill which is within walking distance of her place, so it was quite convenient.
They had a surprisingly decent beer menu!
I got the Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Ale by Brouwerij van Steenberge of Ertvelde, Belgium at 5.5% abv.
Always a good choice. I recently found out that this beer is brewed specially for the bar in Philadelphia called Monks Café. I’ve never been there, but just by the name it sounds like a must if you are hitting up Philly!
And next up was The Poet by New Holland Brewery of Holland, MI at 5.2% abv.
The Poet was good. Creamy and smooth. Very light on the hops so its also not very bitter. Plums and nuts and earthy leather. Reminds me of late fall weather I can get all of my favorite beers easier!
