A friend of a friend decided one day that he needed a change of pace. “I know!” He exclaimed. “I will spend my entire savings on traveling and beer and blog about it.” Extraordinary! He did just that. And thebeertraveller.com was born in good ol’ Seattle, WA. It’s not a very pretty blog, but it’s knowledgeable nonetheless. And he uses terms like “lizard draining”. The best part is that he’s just getting started. If you’re a beer lover, check in on him from time to time. He’s a fun read.
I was being tagged team by both Nicole & Sara at the bar. Being Sara’s 1st day on the job, Nicole was helping field my questions about bar history & beers on tap. I decided to go with a pint of Roslyn Beer (a dark mild lager) & a sample of Brookside Pale (a pale lager). See my reviews. Nicole threw me a curve ball when she asked if I have had a mix. She poured me a sample of 50/50 (dark/pale). Seemed a little weird at first, but she said â€œthey’re both lagersâ€¦why not?â€. More I think about it, it’s like a Black & Tan. It actually worked out quite well as the Pale removed some of the sweetness of the Dark & the Dark removed the tartness of the Pale.
