Stoutmeister here with another correspondent piece, this time from our good friend Adam Auden. He checked out two events that the rest of us missed out on for various reasons.
ABQ Beer Week, Northeast Edition
Friday of my first ABQ Beer Week saw a couple of events in my neck of the woods. Convenient and delicious, how could I refuse?
Oskar Blues’ finest beers shined at Horse & Angel Tavern.
Oskar Blues @ Horse & Angel
First up at the Horse & Angel Tavern we had Oskar Blues bringing some swag and special pours.
I began with a pint of Dale’s Pale which paired well with the fish and chips that had been recommended to me.
Of greater note was the Fat Slim. This was the Colorado-brewed version of the OB/La Cumbre collab (you may have had the locally brewed version around Winter Brew time named Full Pint). This proved to be a well-balanced, sessionable IPA. Dry, biscuity malts, fragrant but not fruity hops, very spritzy and fresh, I will have to seek it out again whilst it’s in town.
