So last night I find myself back in the brewpub which was serving the cloudy IPA a few weeks back. This time the beer wasn’t murky, but it still had considerable haze and tasted a bit young. At one time this was the biggest complaint most people had about brewpub beers. They were often rushed and not given enough time to age in an effort to keep the taps flowing. I think this is a bad idea. If you get unsatisfied customers they will stop ordering the beer that wasn’t up to snuff. In all fairness the beer was good, but I’ve had it when it was great. All it needs is a little more time and it will be on track. Since this particular brewpub is located in a college town I figure once the winter break comes the beers will get to spend a little more time in the fermenter and once again the world will be balanced. Let’s hope they do since their IPA is the best beer they make and currently it isn’t quite worth the effort it takes to drive to the pub to have it. I’m sure I can find some other dive in town with a beer or two which has been properly aged which will provide some excitement for the old tastebuds.
