Lone Eagle Visit - 09/26/16

(I'm in an effort to write something, anything every single day.  It's been awhile since I've been writing blog posts, so I'm hoping this will get me back in the groove.  Hope you enjoy my rambling.)

Tonight I am sipping on a glass (or three) from my growler of Flounder Brewing's Genevieve IPA that I picked up on Saturday.  It is tasting mighty fine, and I highly recommend it.  If you want to know what kind of flavor notes it has, go ahead and pick up a pint and try it yourself.

A few months ago, Lone Eagle Brewing opened up near the outlet mall in Flemington, NJ.  A unique aspect about this new brewery is that it is in a completely newly constructed building instead of being in the local industrial park.  Its not really a positive or a negative for me, its the beer that counts and speaks for himself.

So we paid a visit to Lone Eagle yesterday to relax after a little bit of shopping at the outlets.  I will give a more in depth write-up when I go and tour the brewery in the future.  During this stop, I had pints of two of their beers.  First, their Dry Irish Stout brewed with Homestead Coffee.  Second, their Ordinary Bitter.  Both were around 4% ABV, and both were delicious and bursting with flavor

The taps and bar at Lone Eagle
A pretty neat feature of the taproom is that it consists of an upstairs and a downstairs.  Downstairs, there is a large bar with a few high top tables with bar stool, while upstairs there is a small bar and several picnic tables.  The upstairs was appealing to me as I prefer the picnic tables, and also it overlooks the brewery and downstairs taproom.

Some other beers that Lone Eagle had on tap were:
  • Extra Special Bitter
  • Black IPA
  • Downton Abbey Dubbel
  • American Pale Ale
  • Marzen
  • Red Farmhouse Saison
  • Rye Pale Ale
  • Porter
  • West Coast IPA
  • S.M.A.S.H Mouth Ale
Oh yeah.....they'll be canning really, really soon via Iron Heart Canning!
