One of the hardest things to do at a beer fest is to choose your favorite brew. For this very reason I decided to compile a small list of some of my favorites. Without further ado, here are my top five beers from All Pints North:
#5 Ginger Pale Ale from Barley John’s Brewpub – Ginger and beer? Yes please. The ginger was not overpowering and was a nice addition to the summer friendly, and easy drinking Pale Ale.
#4 Park Point Pilsener from Fitger’s Brewhouse – Sometimes there is nothing better than a nice clean Pilsener on a warm summer day, and no one knows a good Pilsener better than Dave Hoops. Aside from Schell’s, this is probably the best local example I’ve tried.
#3 Coconut Milk Stout from Dangerous Man Brewing – Velvety coconut milk meets chocolatey Stout. The crew at Dangerous Man concocted one of the better Milk Stouts I’ve had in a while.
#2 Imperial Wit from Blacklist Brewing – By far the biggest surprise at All Pints North. Blacklist did not fail to impress with this one—chock full of kaffir lime, citrusy goodness, this wheat-based brew was unique and well crafted to the point where I may just crave it for the rest of the summer.
