Something about sitting with a beer in hand and your eyes gazing over brewing supplies that just gets those creative brewing juices flowing. So on a convenience scale Bear Roots is right up there, because you can shop and drink all at the same time, perhaps even on the same tab! I didn't ask but I would love it if that is the case! This store is top of the line in C02 fills, tank exchange, grain choices and a special water program for specific water profiles.
I had tasters of everything my first visit and my second stop in I knew exactly what I had to have more of..... drum roll please...it was the Peanut Butter Milk Stout! I am not the only person that is crazy for it. While watching the crowd and ease-dropping on what they were ordering, I was validated in my favorite by listening to one person after another come in to order exactly that! Such a gorgeous cocoa nib aroma and the flavor was a combination of peanut butter, vanilla and coffee. What sold it for me was the bitter finish which had me wrapped around its little finger, that must stem from my love of IPAs. Just talking about this stout makes my mouth wanting for more, and I have a good feeling that Bear Roots Brewing Co. knows exactly what a little gem they have with this one! GO! GET IT! But maybe call first and make sure all the other folks haven't drank it all up! Cheers!
