My wife and I did a father's day brunch at an over priced Foo Foo joint. I figured I'd at least have a beer or two. Well the entire list of 10 beers was either some form of IPA or Saison. Millenials and hippies ruin everything.
Upscale joints tend to be more wine focused anyway.
This is definitely more of a beer joint, Vermont foo foo in the hippie sense. In the past they've had some good selections.
Saisons are great if you don't like more hop forward beers. Of course if they are barrel aged saisons, that's a totally different spectrum.
I'll have to try another I had one that didn't suit me. I'll give one a go this week and report back.

Out of curiosity, what was the restaurant? I'm curious as to what their beer list was.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

My routine after biking is to have a beer—I read some time ago that it's a strong means of rehydration and I choose to believe that this is entirely true—and today I'm trying something purchased entirely for the name:

I immediately thought of online reviews for beer. Not that keen on the stuff myself—more sour than I prefer—but it's drinkable.

9/12. Probably should have been 10/12. Most are actually reasonably intuitive.
