On Saturday morning, I was on my way to a birthday party for my friend’s 1 year old son and we decided to stop at a new-ish brewery to pick up beer for the party. When we walked into the Bucket Brewery, the super nice employees offered us a free tasting of their 4 beers. Oh, and it was only 10 am. Oops.
They like to decorate their mini kegs:
Thank goodness the beers were all relatively low in alcohol volume. Drinking that early took a toll. Even though it was probably 12-16 oz of beer total, I felt kind of crappy the whole rest of the day.
The beers were great though. With all of the breweries we visit, a lot of them tend go wild with big flavors. Not that I know much about how to talk about beer, but I felt that these were flavors were subtle and balanced. I chose the Pawtucket Pail Ale for the party, since it was smooth and light and seemed like it would go well with food. If you randomly find yourself in Providence, stop by the Bucket Brewery!
