“The best beers are the ones we drink with friends.”
So it was on Saturday.
Lunch, conversation, laughs and beer with a good friend.
Biking/beer buddy and I finally scoped out a microbrewery in Oshkosh that had escaped us since it opened two years ago.
Not sure how that happened.
After a yummy lunch that included chicken panini, crab cakes, assorted sides and a ancho chocolate strawberry creme brulee, we headed over to Fifth Ward.
Our favorite micro-brew? Tangerine Sour. Because it tasted like fresh-squeezed tangerines and summer.
Least favorite? Burl. Because how can you add cinnamon and molasses to a stout and have it taste so nondescript?
The two in-between’s were okay…at least Peanut tasted like peanuts and S’mores tasted like the bourbon barrel it was aged in while awaiting our arrival.
The atmosphere at the Fifth Ward was nice, the one owner we talked to was uber friendly, and neither he nor the bartender batted an eye when we asked for a few more samples. Good times!
So, in summation…
What would life be like without a very good friend who enjoys road trips, good food and taste testing adult refreshment?
Answer: Just like Burl beer. Nondescript and boring.
