Breweries "Visited"

And Then There Was One

Beer #365 Dirty Blonde Ale / Atwater Brewing Company, Detroit, MI
Beers to go: 1

There you have it - 365 different beers from 365 different breweries in 365 straight days.  Okay, fine, we're not exactly done just quite yet.  Somewhere early in the journey, people started pointing out that 2012 was a leap year, so we have since amended the plan to finish 366 from 366 in 366.  However, I wanted the record to reflect that the original finish line is now in the rear view mirror.  Just saying.

I'll save the pomp and circumstance for tomorrow and just get right into a beer review today.  The second to last beer ends up being the Dirty Blonde Ale from Atwater Brewing in Detroit.  This beer has a crystal clear, pale gold hue with a wispy white head and plenty of carbonation.  Inhale and you pick up aromas of bread and some light citrus.  Take a sip and you find flavors of grain, grass, and orange peel.  Nice, relaxing, easy beer - particularly good today, as yesterday's party for TJ's ninth anniversary had some very big, complex, high ABV beers.  Need to mellow out a bit today....
Do Dirty Blondes have WAY more fun?
This brewery is located in an old factory warehouse building which was built in 1919.  Atwater first opened for business in 1997, and can be found in downtown Detroit's Rivertown district.

Thing to Think About Today:
With just one beer to go, this song certainly seems appropriate - let's wrap things up tonight with Three Dog Night singing One.  Only one more to go... do stop by tomorrow, won't you?

"It's just no good any more since you went away....."
