Just a quick message to let you all know that Pizza Boy Brewing Co. is up and running with several "Test Batch" beers on tap at Al's of Hampden. I stopped in last week and enjoyed a Citra dry-hopped lager on the hand pull and it was quite tasty. According to the most recent tap list at http://www.alsofhampden.com/, all three beer engines are active, with two DIPAs and a hoppy pale on at the moment. Additionally, there are two beers on tap - a Belgian pale and a lager. So stop in to see what Al has been brewing!
Editor's note: Stopped in again on Thursday, December 22 and Al had THREE of his beers on the beer engines: a Warrior/Galaxy DIPA, a Warrior dry-hopped DIPA, and a cherry wood Belgian Pale. I had a pint of the first and third mentioned above, and they were both very good. The DIPA was nicely balanced with a pleasant nose. The pale was intensely bitter with a huge Belgian yeast presence. Al later told me that all of the bitterness came from the cherry wood and NOT from hops. This was definitely an interesting take on a Belgian pale. So stop in soon and try some of these. I've been told that two more new beers will be going on around New Year's Eve, and they are sure to please the masses! I'm definitely looking forward to more new beers from Pizza Boy!
