Beachwood BBQ & Brewing One Year Anniversary

Special first anniversary food menu

On Saturday, July 7th, 2012 Beachwood BBQ & Brewing turned one year old!  A first birthday is always cause for a celebration.  When amazing beer, food, friends, and live music are involved it makes any celebration that much more enjoyable!  For their anniversary, Beachwood BBQ & Brewing not only had some great beers on tap, but they also had specialty food items on the menu.  I tried the Apple White Cheddar Hand Pie with Maple Glaze which was delicious! 

So many guest beers to choose from!
While they had several guest beers on tap, from Ballast Point, Green Flash, and Stone, just to name a few, I decided to sample the house beers instead.  I started off the day with the Hop Vader, a Black IPA with an ABV of 7.1%.  Since I'm a huge IPA fan, this beer was definitely a favorite of the day!  

Cheers to Beachwood BBQ & Brewing!

Next up, I sampled the Dank Epoch, a 10.7 % Triple IPA.  Even though the ABV was nearly 11%, this beer was surprisingly easy to drink.  My third beer of the day was the Knucklehead Red a 5.7% ABV American Red Ale.  This is my second favorite style of beer and I really liked it!  The fourth beer I tried was the Mandarin Dream, a 6.7% ABV Belgian Style Saison.  This beer was light and refreshing, a great beer to enjoy all summer long.

My final beer of the afternoon was also the one beer I was most looking forward to trying, the System of a Stout an 11.3 % Imperial Armenian Coffee Stout.  This beer has been on tap a few times, but this was the first time I'd been able to finally sample it. Although I do not like coffee, I loved this beer.  While I wouldn't be able to drink it on a daily basis, such as the Mandarin Dream, it is one I would love to try again.  As always, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the beers made by Beachwood Brewing and I cannot wait until their second anniversary next year!
