The Beer

Light Lager - Pass
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Pale Ale - A little hoppy in the finish, but not too much in the mouth that I could even identify it as a PA, which is not necessarily bad. Very drinkable, however, as a lighter ale.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Amber - Nothing special. Pretty thin medium-sweet malt, Cascade hops, generally nondescript.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Velvet Amber - The Velvet is ultra ultra smooth, almost like a Guinness amber would be. Spicy notes with a huge flavorful aftertaste.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Nut Brown - It features a nice body, creamy but tart. A little fruit/citrus balances the chocolate/coffee bean dry aftertaste well.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Dunkle Weizen - Definite Banana undertones, a hint of chocolate. It's an interesting blend to enjoy in smaller quantities.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Oatmeal Stout - Featuring rolled oats, the Oatmeal is really sweet and smooth, balanced by a pronounced alcohol taste. Again, fine in small quantities.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Bourbon Stout - Bourbon? Yes! Like it? No. I'd rather have beer or liquor, not both. But if you like bourbon, you'll love this.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Discussion with Brewmaster

Jason Dorpinghaus, Head Brewer. With apparently too much free time, Jason discovered his name is an anagram for "Join Sugar and Hops." Destiny calls, I guess. I spoke with him only briefly, sorrily. Jason, if you have time or feel short-changed, please contact our site. Most of the brews feature Yakima Valley Hops.

The Atmosphere

Sorry for the brevity, but I was late for dinner with family. It was foolish of me to go on a Friday evening, I know. It was an impromptu visit. The Bar Manager, Brian, was very accommodating and helpful. The place was packed, and the crowd was more of the yuppie/preppie variety, and it is located next to the MCI Center. I would like to visit when it's quieter and sample some food, because I believe they're more restaurant oriented.

Afterthoughts

I enjoyed the Velvet Amber, Nut Brown, and Pale Ale.
