|Cheers Adam and Jason!|
During this same trip I made friends with a couple of regulars Adam and Jason who for no reason other than it would be a good time were clad in lederhosen. We became acquainted as I came out of the glorious barrel room Lost Abbey and Port Brewing have installed. The significance is that they make their barrel aged creations for the Lost Abbey side of the operation in this room.
|Barrel aging at its finest|
There is a symbiotic relationship between Port Brewing and Lost Abbey, one that I was unaware of until this visit. Port Brewing is the more commercial side of the operation, producing the American and West Coast style beers while Lost Abbey has the awesome responsibility of brewing up the Belgian-inspired and premium beers. How can you tell the difference besides name alone? Port Brewing bottles traditionally, while Lost Abbey’s brews are all bottled and corked.
|Off we go|
As we left Lost Abbey and Port Brewing, it was clear that our group had hit the level where it was either going to be a great rest of the day or downhill from here
