late March, I had the good fortune to crash 515 Brewing's Terrible
Twos Birthday Bash, featuring a hefty compliment of beers,
delicious cupcakes from Crème
Cupcake made with 515's Wired Heifer coffee
milk stout, plus eats from Guru BBQ. I flew through several
flights of 515's product.
IPA American pale wheat (5.6% ABV) is such a bright
offering. Hopped, but most decidedly an appealing wheat beer.
The Mediocre American pale ale (6.2% ABV) is a
wonderful balance of hops, creaminess, and effervescence.
Grapefruit nose, wee orange on finish. The BlackWheat IPA
Thang (6.5% ABV) sports an indescribable aroma and
flavor. Strong, likely polarizing, but worthy a try.
outstanding Belgian Paradise pale ale (7.7% ABV)
is a mouthful of bubble gum that's creamy, yet bright. The Passé
American pale ale (6.2% ABV) is dry, hoppy. Tingly
effervescence, goes down like a wheat beer. The Hopititis
Imperial IPA (9.0% ABV) is no slough with a tongue-curling
hoppiness, a decided flavor and aroma of grapefruit pith, with a
wee citrus finish.
[English] Red (7.8% ABV) entices with flavors of
prune and malt. Malt comes across on the nose as well. It flows
swiftly over the tongue. The Numb Nut spiced
brown ale (5.9% ABV) is spiced indeed but not overbearing.
Smidgen of cocoa on the finish. Tastes like the holiday season.
The Sweet Celebration grapefruit wheat (6.9% ABV)
has a soft, creamy mouthfeel. Bright, but not as grapefruity as
BBQ provided Korean fusion tacos and smoked pork topped
