Had a great time at Rock Bottom tonight. Ben, Josh, and I got there early enough to have a beer before the tapping. I had the IPA which is pretty intense, so my taste buds were somewhat shot when we got the try the Catcher in the Rye Pale Ale, but it was nice. Similar to the IPA, but less hoppy, which means I liked it a bit less. Although as I’m typing this there’s a commercial on tv for Bud Lite Lime, which really puts things in perspective for me.
I also think it’s worth pointing out that it was super nice of Rock Bottom to give out free pints to everyone in the bar. Plus, they weren’t jerks about the happy hour. Where some bars quit 15 minutes early Rock Bottom was nice enough to honor the cheap drinks and appetizers right up until the last minute.
Only weird thing for me is that they don’t list their beers anywhere on their site that I can find, plus they didn’t have any description of the Catcher in the Rye Pale Ale except for a sheet hanging above the urinals. When I asked the waitress if they had any extras she looked really confused. I warned her that my other option was snagging one from the bathroom.
