Yesterday I was enjoying lunch with my DH at a local Belgian-style bistro (there are now at least 3 places in our town that serve Moules et Frites), when a four-top was seated next to us.
After a few moments, the older gentleman said to the group, "they serve artisnal beer here."
The younger gentleman asked, "what's that?"
"It's, it's, well, they make it from water that comes from really, you know, deep underground wells..."

I'd meant to make a post about this, but then time got away from me. This past November, I had cause to be up in Kansas City (my husband had training in Overland Park). Since we were in the neighbourhood, we did the Boulevard Brewery tour. It's a fantastic place to visit if you ever get the chance. I fell in love with the floor; I wanted to roll round on it. Seriously. It was lush. 

We sampled their wares, but as it usually goes when I'm in that part of the country, Schlafly's seasonal was the one to write home about. I've heard that people run hot and cold on Schlafly, but I've yet to sample anything on tap that wasn't spectacular.

As it so happened, one of my husband's favourite singer/songwriters, Jeffrey Gaines, was in town the same time we were. So we bought tickets and hied us hence to the Riot Room for the highlight of the week. I knew I wanted something from Schlafly, but my husband was feeling adventurous - so he asked for a flight of Southern Tier's Creme Brulee, and... well, it was strange. It did taste exactly of creme brulee, but we bought decided that this was a flavour that beer simply shouldn't have. XD

Schlafly's Double Pumpkin, on the other hand, was heavenly from start to finish. I think I made a Schlafly convert of him. I'm trying to sort out a jaunt up to St Louis in April, and the Schlafly Tap Room is where I plan to spend a goodly lot of my time.
