Sprecher’s Black Bavarian at Oblio’s. There’s no better American Schwarzbeir. The lager so good that when Oblio’s co-owner Todd Cummings put it on tap one of his customers reached over the bar and hugged him.
Alpha King Pale Ale at Oblio’s. A classic, American hop bomb that may already be gone (it was still there Tuesday night). But don’t worry, when Alpha King runs dry the beer taking its place will be Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute IPA. Either way, you’re craving for palate smashing hops will be slaked.
Shine On Red Ale at Barley & Hops. Here’s a light-bodied beer with just enough going on to keep you raising that cup to your lips. A little malty, a bit estery and good all the way around.
Bell’s Oberon at Oblios, O’Marro’s and Peabody’s. For my money this is the best American-style Wheat Beer out there. You can drink a river of this and never tire of it. I speak from experience.
Trolley Car Stout at Fratellos in Oshkosh. A nice, full-bodied, roasty stout that’s very drinkable. A growler of this on the patio would be a good way to end the evening.
Belhaven Scottish Stout at O’Marro’s. A desert beer for sure and a malt lovers dream. Rich, creamy and delicious. I haven’t had this one on tap, yet, but I’ll remedy that soon.
It’s a good time to be a beer drinker in Oshkosh
