Two Roads Brewery Doubletap



In all my excitement with blogging about the opening of Two Roads Brewery I was remiss in doing a review of the two new beers I tried while I was there.

When I had my sneak peek of the brewery prior to them opening their doors to the public I had the opportunity to try their Holiday Ale, Road 2 Ruin and Honeyspot Road.  All of which were outstanding brews!

When I was at the opening I got to try two new beers . . . 

Worker's Comp Saison is a very sessionable 4.8% ABV.  It is murky golden color with a fluffy head and a hearty wheat aroma.   Worker's Comp is a very wheaty beer that is lightly fruity and a little hoppy . . . making for a delicious, well-balance brew.  If you're a fan of wheat beer then this one is definitely for you!  Light and refreshing . . . very good!

The saison was good and all that but . . . 

Ol' Factory Pils was the star for me.  A clear golden colored beer with a thick head and a mouth-watering hoppy aroma.  A very drinkable and sessionable 5.0% ABV, Ol' Factory is a surprisingly hoppy pilsner.  It's not as hoppy as an IPA.  It is smooth, crisp and has just the right amount of bite.   Oh . . . and lacing?  It's got that! This is one of those beers I could sit around and drink all day . . . and enjoy every single sip.  Delish!!

However, I must admit that Honeyspot Road white IPA remains my favorite of all their beers . . . so far.

Hi Cher. Love your reviews. and appreciate the honest feedback. Now, thanks to the Mayans being wrong about 12/21 we can look forward to having you here again. Of course, that does mean we now have to go Christmas shopping. Brad
