From the Chicago Desk:
THE BEER: Begyle Brewing’s Comb the Desert
WHAT IS IT? A schwartzbier
THE SERVING METHOD: a growler
HOW DID YOU CONE BY THIS BEER? I finally got off the wait list for Begyle’s CSB membership. CSB is “community supported brewery.” I live in a beer neighborhood. It’s actually considered that.
HOW MUCH IS THIS CSB MEMBERSHIP? $77 with tax and growler.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET A NEW BEER? Every month for six months!
SO HOW IS IT? It’s not bad. It’s roasty. Feels very light for a dark beer, but it is a lager. The mouthfeel is not heavy, if you follow. It’s not hoppy, either.
WOULD YOU DRINK IT AGAIN? Well, yeah. I got a growler full of it!
I MEAN WOULD YOU ORDER IT? Would you choose to get it? I would drink this again, but I would prefer to try something different. Is that an acceptable response?
DEEP THOUGHTS? Nope. None.
