Where I try to muse over pints

For David:

Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, I thought I would try to muse over some pints of real beer while I was in Indy last week.

We stopped at The Triton brewery on old Fort Benjamin Harrison.

Clockwise, I started with the Fieldhouse Wheat, MSgt J was having the Railsplitter IPA, Mrs B loved the Four Barrel Brown and Mrs J had the Magnificent Amber.

They were awesome beers. For the second round, everyone stayed the same except MSgt J, who switched over to the B-Java Brown. A dark ale brewed with ten pounds of Espresso beans.

You heard me right...Coffee. Flavored. Beer.

We were using the delicious brews to wash down fries, and not just any fries.

We started with Chef Dan's regular seasoned fries (awesome Cajun) and then followed up with a batch of the best sweet potato fries I've ever had (seasoned with brown sugar, cinnamon and something else I just couldn't put my finger on)

We talked the waitress into selling us two of the little round beer-tasting glasses you can see on the table there. She also threw in some stickers and some coasters because I'm so damn good looking.

My 'Happy' Face

I was musing just fine until I got halfway through that second beer. They sure do make them strong out there in Indy.

Well done. Sounds like a great place, glad you shared.

And now you know the hazards of beer blogging. Yea, it's tough job but it must be done!

I like going to the micro-brewerys around here. So many different taste. And I have to say, you sure do look like a happy camper.

David - Thanks for the inspiration

Coffey - I'm usually a Miller Lite guy, it was a nice change.

A Girl - I'm always happy (after a couple beers)

Old NFO - It was a blast
