In another sign that the beer scene on the Monterey Peninsula is moving in the right direction, Peter B’s Brewpub tapped their very first firkin on Wednesday night.
Brewer Kevin Clark did the honors of tapping the firkin and I had the honor of getting the first (and last) pint. The beer was the wonderfully aggressive, espresso-bomb Dark Side Ale. In the firkin, Dark Side morphed into a tasty mellow brew with strong notes of mocha and coffee. A huge hit amongst the many gathered at Peter B’s, the firkin was dry in less than three hours.
I look forward to the next firkin, a dry-hopped IPA.
Watch Kevin tap the firkin
