I took Jane out on a “date” Wednesday for a birthday happy hour at the Memphis Taproom.  I met Jonny and Lana, and immediate had a glass of Cantillon Vigneronne.  Man I love real Lambics!  I actually thought this was a Gueuze at first.  The grape flavor is really mellow.  I also had a Uerige Doppelsticke, which I knew little about when I ordered it.  I was rather blown away by this beer.  Its a strong Altbier, almost a doppelbock, but crisper.  So good.

They were also passing around plates of food.  It was a nice chance to taste some of the meaty options at Memphis that I’ve yet to have in my meat eating adventures.  Chicken liver mousse, not really my cup of tea.  Kielbasa and sauerkraut, much much more so.  I can’t wait to get back there for dinner to have a whole one.

So happy beerthday Memphis, and others…
