Sometimes you get delayed, sometimes a good blog post just takes time to craft.
Choose whichever you want as the reason for my delay in delivering the goods on a fantastic trio of beers coming from Due South. They were still fantastic and I’m still going to sing their praises.
Come to think of it, this was part of their Father’s Day releases, which saw me enjoying this as I taught my daughter the joys of Cornhole. It’s the little things.
It’s funny, since it was also the first time that I had seen the new enclosed tap room. It looks great, but it’s odd to see things from behind windows that I’ve always seen up close before.
Regardless, the beer. On the left was my pint, their Historic London Brown Ale (Brown Ale, 5.9% ABV) on Nitro. Holy crap was this mind blowing. I love English Browns, since they are nutty and just a bit on the aggressive side. Give this a smooth Nitro pour, and everything is enhances and amped up. Incredibly delicious and deeply satisfying.
My wife had the beer in the middle, Calling All Cars (Porter, 8.2% ABV). This is actually my favorite Due South beer of all time, and the main reason I wanted to go that day. It’s a coffee and doughnut porter, mixing a solidly malty porter with robust coffee notes and a nice hint of sugary sweetness. It’s fantastic and a total shame it doesn’t go on tap more often.
On the right was my dad’s choice, a Coffee Caramel Cream Ale (Cream Ale, 5% ABV, 16 IBU) treatment that brought a welcome, intriguing coffee bitterness to a great beer that is already bursting with caramel goodness.
Due South always has great beers on tap, and I was happy to try this trio of fantastic beers when I was there. Whenever that is.
