More Jeffrey

Eric: Apparently, The Jeffrey is my new favorite bar.  Good, cheap food, lots of space, and a consistently amazing draft list.  Today’s list had a lot I wanted….

But I settled for two:

Oxbow Beer Farmhouse Pale Ale (6.0% ABV):  This was my first beer from Oxbow, located in Newcastle, Maine.  Yet ANOTHER amazing Maine brewery.  I love sour/funky IPAs, and this was a great example.  It had saison-like carbonation and lacing, and a hoppy (but light) bitterness that didn’t overwhelm the barnyard funk.

Allagash Confluence Ale (7.5% ABV): Staying in Maine, this was pretty similar to the Oxbow.  I liked it a little more, because it had a bit more funk (without sourness) but was still extremely light and easy to drink.
