At least my sixth visit to this Dog house, following three in the scorching hot summer of 2018, one this time last year, and another a good few years back.
Tonight it was time for a couple of relaxing drinks to unwind, after an evening of networking with the day job. After around five hours of talking shop, it was time just to kick back and chill for a bit. No football on tonight (this was my World Cup venue during my week here in June), so just time to unwind with a couple of interesting beers. This was Buck Craft by Moncada, a collaboration with this very bar.
When was the last time that you had a kettle sour inspired by Buckfast Tonic Wine, brewed to the Flemish Red style? No, me neither. Loads of grapes mixed with lactic acid results in a refreshing kettle sour, although not as awesome as it should be given the description.
I also had another collaboration beer, Crossover by La Calavera, a Berliner Weisse sour with Lactobacillus, a pretty standard sour with not much on the finish. It was nice just to kick back here for an hour. Off to bed now as I’m an invited speaker at a conference tomorrow…
