Nestled in a northern corner of Old Town’s Turner Street is the beer-producing gem known as Ozone’s Brewhouse. You can find anything from IPA’s, smoked beer and American porters here.
Feeling adventurous, I decided to try a flavor I hadn’t seen before. That’s how I stumbled upon the Sage of Ale.
Now I’m a fan of cream ales, the addition of grains makes the body light, crisp and refreshing. But mixing that flavor with sage?
This piqued my interest. I did away with apprehensions I may have had, ordered a glass, and I took a sip.
It had all the elements of a great ale with minimal bitterness — just how I like it. The sage shined through too, imparting a surprisingly fresh taste you that you probably won’t find in your run-of-the-mill cream ale.
If I learned anything with my quick craft-beer foray, it’s that sometimes, risky flavors can pay off big time.
