If you haven’t read that one yet, now’s your chance! Cheers, and enjoy Part II!

On our most recent trip to Pittsburgh, I took my buddy Pete to go pick up some cans from the Number one brewery on a lot of people’s must do lists. The Mecca for hazy brews in PGH. The one, the only, Dancing Gnome Brewing Company.

That reflection, though. I think this is what Christina Aguilera was singing about in Mulan (this is a Disney-niche joke. Did it work for you? If it did, sound off in the comments below!)

The driveway to the brewhouse was home of this really cool mural!

DG just so happened to have a release day the weekend we were down, and, although we had a busy schedule the whole weekend, Pete and I had about an hour to kill, so we stopped by to pick up some cans to-go.

It was a collaboration release day, so the kings of haze in PGH hooked up with Narrow Gauge Brewing from Florissant, MO (I hadn’t heard of them before this release!) to create a beer called…

Selling beers right out of the brewhouse!

I tasted one while we were still in town, and it still had a lot of heat on it, so I saved my other three cans, and a week later, this beer was perfect. Super creamy, guava, pineapple, orange, with a touch of syrupy sweetness. This beer was sweet like candy, as David Matthews once said, to my soul.

It’s got a simple, elegantly designed label, which I appreciate as well. These boys at DG are doing amazing things, and I highly recommend checking out their space if you’re ever in PGH.

There are so many more breweries I’d love to try in PGH! What an amazing time to be a craft beer drinker!

Until next time!
