Monk Brewery Reviews

Paddys Irish Pub Portland OR

The sign outside lists it as one of the top 10 pubs in the country… Had to stop in for a few lunch pints.

So, first selection was the Frearless Brewing Scottish ale. It is a lite brown sweet ale with a pretty good body. Head was disappointing because it did not last long and now a little flat :-(. Not a huge selection of beers on tap other than the normal fair of Irish brews. I wanted to try more Oregon locals since this was my first time in Portland!

Oh well on with lunch. You know the place has something on the ball when you can walk in at 11am and there is a cop sitting at a table drinking a beer! Food should be decent… having the reuben when it comes out.

DIA airport – New Belgium pub terminal C

Waiting on a flight home and had to stop by to have the seasonal release of Hoptober from New Belgium. As everyone knows by now, Pappa J has never been a hop-head, but in recent weeks he has been a hopvert and coming around to the dark side of beer. This seasonal brew is very tasty and deserves a few pints to really get a good buzz going before the flight 🙂

So anyone flying though DIA in the near future, I recommend the Hoptober brew for those who want a great beer for the road and something to remember from Colorado!

Not very frothy, but still went down smooth!

Vintage Chophouse in Calgary – Creemore Springs

The only beer they make that is very tasty lager that looks lite, but has a rich and full taste, but not hoppie or too IPA. It is a red shaded golden with a very good frothy top and holds that head all the way down the pint!

This was a recomendation of the tender at Vintage Chophouse in Calgary over Traditional ale.
