So So Lousy Good Good So So

Establishment: Back Street Brewing Company, Holland, MI

Beer was BLAND!! They didn't have the IPA and the waitress said the pale ale was similar. I got the pale and it tasted like "Killian's Light". At least their beer was clean tasting and free of defects, but unfortunately flavor also.

We had the sampler and the pale ale and porter were bigtime infected. The others also had the infected taste but weren't as bad. Food & service were good, though.

Establishment: Brewery Creek Inn, Restaurant and Brewery, Mineral Point, WI

We lucked out and came on the day they were having their open house - free beer and food. But call ahead since they're not open every day. Everyone was bigtime friendly but their knowledge of beer was very limited. The Alt was called a "Brown Ale", "Ale", and "Brown Alt." The Kolsch was a "Kolsch", "Blonde Ale", or "lager". They had a porter which was quite good. Both the Kolsch and Alt were infected but drinkable, and still better than megaswill. The place looks great and has potential but the beer needs some work on the sanitation.

Great So So N/A N/A Great

Establishment: Wild Onion Brewing Company, Lake Barrington, IL

Don't let some of the "great" fool you into believing this is a brewpub - that will happen in late Aug or Sep, 1999.

I couldn't find the address on Yahoo maps so I used Mapquest. The map showed "Buckley Road" or something like that but on the North side of 14, it's Pepper Rd that you want.

Anyway, it's a nice small brewery that makes really good beer. I've had the Pale Ale before and it's good as usual and the stout was also very good. The brewers took time out of their day to talk and serve us beer and give a tour.

Can't wait for the brewpub!
