The beer is called Three Fields, and is an unfiltered triple grain lager. Barley, wheat, and rye, with Columbus hops.
Personally, I won't go out of my way to try it at one of those places and will wait till it is more widely available.
The brewery itself is aiming to open in May. The head brewer was an assistant brewer at Beau's for a year, and then head brewer for Barley Days.
I don't wanna sound negative, but it better be one hell of a lager if that's what they're putting out first.

If his past work has been any indication of the quality we can expect...

This is incredibly frustrating.

Wind and Sail dark is a well made beer.
I'm sure the brewer is reasonably talented.
No doubt if his new venture was starting with a barrel aged imperial stout you guys would advise him to learn to walk before he runs.

midlife crisis wrote:Read the reviews you choose to quote! "It surprisd me a lot. A quality dark". "Above average dark ale, a bit too heavy on the malts". Look, I didn't say this was a "world class" beer, to use your favourite phrase, just that it is well made for what it is and the brewer (whoever that is) deserves some respect, not smug, eye-rolling condescension.
Bottle from the brewery brought back by my parents on their trip to Prince Edward County. Label upside down.
A - Pours root beer brown. Bright. Sort of an amber colour. Fluffy beige head of one full finger. Good carbonation.Good retnetion with a half finger, and a little chunk of lacing.
S - Nice. Coffee, roasted malts, dark bread, a little chocolate and a good amount of nuttiness.
T - More coffee and toffee, chocolate and a little nuttiness.
M - Good carbonation, mild but nice. Medium to light body, but still seems a little thin.
O/D - I honestly wasn't expecting much from this at all, but it suprised me alot, a quality dark, light bodied ale, very moorish.
