Honeygo Lite
Honeygo Lite is light, crisp, and drinkable. It has a nice flavor. Honeygo Lite is good light beer. I like the Honeygo Lite better than the Avenue Ale.

Avenue Ale
Avenue Ale has a much more carbonated mouth feel than Honeygo Lite. It also has a nice sweet aftertaste.


Something Red
The Something Red isn't as bitter as I thought it would be. Actually not bitter at all. The Something Red is just okay.


Maddy Moo's Hefeweizen
The Hefeweizen is light orange. I don't find anything particularly interesting there. Hefeweizen, like the Something Red, is just okay.


Daily Crisis IPA
I like the hoppy and piney flavor in the Daily Crisis IPA. The Daily Crisis IPA has a nice piney smell to it.


Dobie Gillis Rye Pale Ale
The specialty pale ale is not as piney as the Daily Crisis IPA and felt more carbonated. This pale ale smells and tastes sweeter than the Daily Crisis IPA.


Spooners' Stout
The Spooners' Stout is the only one I could get a smell out of. It has a typical chocolate smell. Though the taste is more like coffee than chocolate. Like black coffee. The final Spooners' Stout sip had more of that chocolate taste.


Grilled Tuna Steak
Nice seasoning, but it seems done. I asked for medium rare lol. Next time I'd ask for rare. Well I guess I'd try something else next.


Fish & Chips
The fish in the fish and chips is good. Good with tartar sauce. Not good with cocktail sauce. =P

*Sorry about the low resolution.
I helped finish L.W.'s unwanted Spooners' Stout and specialty IPA samplers.

Hi,

I visited Red Brick Station two weeks ago (September 17, 2011). I was
hoping you would be able to provide me with the names of the two
specialty beers on tap at the time. I was only told their styles, but
was wondering if they had names. They were a hefeweizen and pale ale (or
possibly an IPA).

Have a good day,
Tim
I happily and promptly received the following reply on October 3, 2011:
Tim

Thanks for the note. The Hef. is called Maddy Moos' and the pale ale is Dobies' Rye PA.....Hope you liked them. Please come see us again soon. The Hef has kicked and we now have EJ's Pumpkin Ale on tap.

Thanks

AVENUE ALE - 2007 Maryland Governor's Cup Bronze Medal
A golden colored ale with crisp malt character and a slightly spicy hop aroma. We use a good amount of wheat and some German malt in this one to give it a very refreshing taste. Avenue Ale is a true session beer, so sit down and prepare for a long one. Bill & Tony's favorite.
ABV = 4.1%

HONEYGO LITE
Although this is a truly lite beer, it's not light on flavor. If you are looking for a real thirst quencher, this is the one.
ABV = 3.6%

DAILY CRISIS IPA
Don't let the name fool you. This beer is no mistake. A light copper colored ale with an intense hop nose and a distinct hop flavor with mild body and plenty of kick. For the true beer enthusiast this beer weighs in at 55 IBU's. A great beer with lots of flavor. Named after our friends at the Daily Crisis Dairy Farm here in Baltimore County, Maryland.
ABV = 6.1%

SOMETHING RED - 2007 Maryland Governor's Cup Winner!
This one has something for everyone. A deep copper colored ale with just the right amount of malt to complement the dosing of hops. A true beer lover's beer.
ABV = 5.0%

SPOONERS' STOUT
A true Irish Ale for those of you who are brave enough to get into the darker beers. Spooners' has a full roasted malt flavor and a perfect balance between the hops and malt. It's smooth as silk going down and is sure to please.
ABV = 4.5%

Grilled Tuna Steak
Ahi tuna steak char grilled to temperature and served with white rice pilaf and the vegetable of the day. $15.99 Also available as a Club Sandwich with chips. $13.99

Fish & Chips **Brewer's Choice**
Beer battered white fish fried to perfection and served with chips (french fries) and cole slaw. $12.99
