Back at the end of May 2013, I was driving up the hill to go and visit my grandma. As I approached her place, I made eye contact with a pretty girl who was walking a dog on the side of the road. After I drove past her, I looked back and she was looking at me! It was a sunny day, the kind of day one might find love, and I thought to myself, “I love this stuff!” I parked my car and got out, wishing that I could go and talk to her, but by now she was too far away and I was expected by my grandma. Still, it was worth a shot! I ran over to the road, but she was too far down to catch up to or call out to, so I did what any caveman would do on impulse to attract a mate; I picked up a large chunk of asphalt and threw it down the road. It did not go nearly far enough to attract her attention, but it did land near a lady working in the garden of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall, who looked up and scowled at me! I took one fleeting look down the road and scurried back towards my grandma’s, never to see my “asphalt girl” again!
Later that day I went for a pint with my father and uncle at Sir Winston’s Pub. They were both amused by my unorthodox attempt to meet a girl. I had the Cannery Brewing Naramata Nut Brown Ale on draught.
Appearance: Dark brown, limited head.
Taste: Rather carbonated with an earthy, malty taste. Think roast acorns but in a good way. Better as it warms up.
Conclusion: Likely better when applied as a six pack with friends, the draught version was not as good as the canned version. That does make sense however, since it is Cannery Brewing!
