Fool Me Three Times…


It probably wasn't the smartest idea to grab a beer after eating some ice cream. But it was only fair to M that he got something after I dragged me out to Delmar for dessert. I casually mentioned what the beer of the day was over at Brown's, and it piqued M's interest.

I can't even remember the last time we were at Brown's... well over a year ago. The reason for such a stretch between visits was because every visit has been lackluster. I don't even want to say mediocre, because that's kind of mean, and because the last visit was so long ago. Issues with the beer, issues with the food, issues all around. So I haven't been jumping at the opportunity to go there - hell, I've passed up invitations from co-workers to go there because of those past experiences.

But that's just me, and I obviously have no idea what I'm talking about because people still go there in droves. I'm just a girl with limited understandings of beer and finicky tastes who also has a food related blog. I absolutely have no idea what I'm talking about.

M ordered the heffe, which according to him tasted off. Strong sulfur smell. Dominant hop flavor, as it should, but still off. He ordered another in case that first one was a fluke (and it was the beer of the day). Tasted just the same - off.

"Why do we still keep going here?" he asked after finishing the second beer.


Nothing really sounded appealing, but I decided to get a couple of sides anyways. The coleslaw was alright, but as you can see it was pretty soupy. Liquid aside, I liked that it wasn't mayo-heavy as slaw can be. I also got the potato wedges with rosemary and sea salt. I'm guessing it was baked, which was fine, but do yourself a favor and pass this up.
