Well… that is she’s enjoying a flight of micro brews in Grand Junction without me and had the NERVE to send me a photo of her flight of beer and her great looking pizza. I guess you’d say she’s BEER cheating!
She’s at Kannah Creek Brewery right across the street from Mesa State College… Coincidence?? I don’t think so! Funny thing is that when we met 3 years ago I only drank Bud light, and hated wine and she only drank wine and hated beer other than Blue Moon. Flash forward to now… her favorite brews are porters and stouts… I guess this makes sense… they do mostly have chocolate in them in some fashion and us guys all know how women feel about CHOCOLATE! And the only wine I like is a Cab or Pino Noir.. and she’s all into Stouts and Porters. I guess you’d say we are expanding each others’ horizons!
So here is her report on the beer there without my knowledgeable expertise to influence her. She doesn’t really care for IPA’s, so no review for them.
Her favorite.. no big surprise was the Pigasus Porter. Description: Dark brown with emphasis on CHOCOLATE and roasted nuts with a lingering coffee taste.. Hello.. who wouldn’t love that?! Followed closely by the Black Bridge Stout (We also really like Black Bridge wine and have been to that winery on the western slope of CO) This one also has the infamous chocolate, coffee and roasted flavors and a bit of carbonation to give it a creamy head. Man am I jealous she is there without me! Island Mesa Blonde Ale comes in third. This has a a slightly hoppy flavor and is very light.. for those new to the micro-brews… this is a great one to try says my neophyte beer drinking wife… She didn’t care for the Hefe called Highside Hefeweisen she said it has the “Bleckhy” micro-brew taste! Sooo technical… and the Lands End Amber was quite tasty also. She enjoyed these with the Basil and Tomato Pizza with freshly grated cheese on top. Very good.
I’ve been to this pub myself a few times and the atmosphere is very homey with a great patio out front. The regular crowd is a mixture of locals, college students and a few tourists from the front range like us. If you are ever in Grand Junction Colorado make sure and stop by for a flight!
