I’d completely forgotten about this tasting, but decided I’ll pop over to Bauer Wines on Newbury Street after work and check it out.
Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project is a relatively new local brewing company -if company is really the right term- whose first release, Jack D’or Saison Americain, is a hoppy take on the traditional saison style. While I haven’t reviewed it here I have had a bottle from their first batch and it was very enjoyable if a bit on the hoppier side of things for my taste.
Tonight @ 5pm Dann Paquette, founder and brewer at Pretty Things, will be debuting their second offering Saint Botolph’s Town Rustic Dark Ale as well as pouring Jack D’Or. So stop on by and try some of each and take a bottle or two home.
[Editor’s note: 2/13- I had a couple of samples and the Saint Botolph’s was as good as I hoped it would be. I snagged a couple of bombers so a review of it and Jack D’or will be forth coming in the upcoming weeks.]
