Buzzard's Bay Brewery Visit
We made a visit to Buzzard's Bay Brewing this weekend, way down in southern Massachusetts. In fact, they're so far south (we consider the Rhode Island border the Mason-Dixon line) we might not have made the pilgrimage if we hadn't tried their beers at the New England beer fest. We're glad we did, because they had some beers on tap that we seriously dug.
We got there too late to take the tour, but the folks working were extremely nice and let us wander around a little bit and check out the man behind the curtain. They had four beers available for tasting - a pale ale, a black lager, a hefe weizen and a dopple bock.
Our standout favorite was the Dopplebock, which clocks in at 163 days of lagering time (whatever that is) and offers a hefty 8.5 percent ABV, and most importantly offers a tasty and chewy sipping experience. We were also impressed by the Hefe Weizen, a type of beer we usually don't cotton to, but this one goes beyond the usual "mask the taste with lemon" and offers a hint of cloves and a surprisingly clean taste. We ended up getting a 12 pack of the black lager, if that tells you how we felt about it, and we certainly didn't have any complaints about the pale ale. Check them out in your liquor store if you're local, and grab the address so you can visit the brewery yourself at BuzzardsBrew.com.
