For those who don’t know this about me and pint nights, if you tell me I can keep the glass I’m going to be there.
If you tell me that glass is going to be a mason jar from Lagunitas Brewing Company, I’m coming and I’m bringing a few friends.
Now, I’ve been to Urge Gastropub before and I really love it there. The selection of what they have on tap is always impressive and the bottle selection is nice as well. As for the food, well, the food is simply amazing. I mean, these guys really know what they are doing in the kitchen. Tonight I was only snacking due to a meal waiting for me at home, but the mini corn dog lollipops with sculpin mustard was fantastic and my friend let me sample a bite of truly out of this world meatloaf. So when you go, do yourself a big favor and eat.
As for Pint Night itself, with it being a Wednesday night and me being a little further out from home than I prefer when drinking during the work week, I keep my pints limited to the IPA, which isn’t a bad thing at all. The Lagunitas IPA is a superb mix hops and malts. The beer deserves your attention when you drink it. Just wonderful bright, hoppy flavors.
So if there is a downside to tonight it was my own limitations. I would have loved to sample the Waldo’s Special – Double IPA and the Farmhouse Gueuze Saison. I’ve made a mental note to check back, while out and about this weekend.
And as for the mason jar glass? As you can see, it’s pretty damn awesome.
