Can’t say that I have had the chance to try that but my new favorite ‘experience’ is the Tower Tap Room in Montgomery.
It’s a self-pour establishment, sort of like a beer ATM. You provide a CC and they give you a card that will allow you to activate the taps. As you pour it keeps up with what you have poured, how much it costs (from about $ 0.45 to $0.80 or so an oz) and will cut you off if you pour too much in too short a time. You have to go to the desk to get checked out to be sure you are still OK to be drinking. It factors in your food purchases, but not your size…
The screen over each set of 3 taps gives more info on the beers in that group such as who makes it, tasting/flavor notes, ABV, IBU etc.
@kizen99 yeah, and while you are here you can check out Chattabrewchee in West Point GA.
That was the first Pour-Your-Own I had ever encountered and is a craft brewer as well. Owned by a military couple (she is still active duty with the JAG, he is a retired army Lt Colonel) They do the “beer ATM” like I mentioned above but on a smaller scale (though with their own beers). They don’t do food, but you are welcome to bring your own from outside. Fun place and cool that they are military… a big plus in this area with Ft Benning, Maxwell AFB, and Warner Robbins AFB in the vicinity.
BTW Chattabrewchee is a play on Chattahoochee, the name of the river that is the border between GA and AL and is minutes away from their doorstep.
@daveinwarsh yes! great beer and good food ! we got a 12 pack of elder to go too…! the younger was great, glad i got to try it, and take a few home, don’t think i would wait in line again that long… i think we had a fairly short wait compared to some though…
/giphy check off the bucket list
Got in queue last year to get a ticket to have a glass at a local watering hole - “Tony’s Darts Away.” Younger was indeed yummy; however, I have a steady supply of Elder so I am not sure younger was worth the hassle… Still good though. On second thought, all of the pomp and circumstance may have added to the pleasure? Ah the life of a beer enthusiast.
@stolicat@zinimusprime I’ve never had the opportunity to try it. I once tried to make a Pliny clone recipe but it didn’t turn out well - there were so many hops that it clogged up the brewing equipment.
I had it for the first time yesterday. They had it on tap at a local bar and heavily promoted it. Shockingly, there was maybe 20 of us waiting in line when they opened. I was shocked when I saw on Instagram they still had some left.
