I was at Fatheads Friday night. I’m still wishing they had that Gouden Carolus Cuvee. Alas, they do not.
They did have their #1. It tastes completely different than last year’s and the year before’s #1. Apparently, #1 is the first beer brewed at Fatheads and they only make it once a year. The first time I had it, it blew me away. Last year I loved it too. This year, I am unimpressed. Oh well.
So, next I tried Ayinger Brau Weisse. Delightful. I just love unfiltered wheat beers. This was lovely and I would definitely get it again.
Then there is the pizza. I would never suspect that a place like this would have good pizza. Nothing against Fatheads. The rest of their food is really good. I just wouldn’t expect them to have solid pizza. But they do.
I originally ordered Avery’s Collaboration Not Litigation Ale. I had this a few weeks before at Fatheads and it was amazing. But they had just run out 😦 There are too many beers to try to be upset for long.
Right around beer two, I need food. And there was food. I love Fatheads smokehouse wings. The beastie sauce is very good. I like the killer sauce the best. But I understand not everyone likes a fire in their belly. Fatheads smoked wings are the shit.
Then there was the pizza. I wouldn’t expect a place like Fatheads to have good pizza. This has nothing to do with the quality of anything they have. The rest of their food is really good. I just wouldn’t expect them to have good pizza. Oh, but they do.
It has beans and, I don’t know, by the time I finished I was very drunk. That doesn’t make the pizza any less good. Even drunk, I know good food. This was completely amazing. If I’m going to blow my training diet, this is the way to do it, Fatheads wings and pizza. It was so good, I don’t even feel guilty.
The biggest surprise of the night, however, wasn’t the food, it was the last beer. Fathead’s Fuzzy Wuzzy. I didn’t pick this beer, it was my husband’s. He almost didn’t get any. It had a delicate peach flavor and was crisp and light and I wish I had brought the growler because I so would have filled it with this. But that just means I have to go back for more. That and I never got to try Fathead’s Udderly Smooth Milk Stout. Maybe I could go back tonight. I did 8 miles or training yesterday and another 8 today, that deserves a beer or three, right?
