I visited Otter Creek last year and had that Black IPA. It was quite good.

Two nights ago I had some of their flagship Copper Ale that was very nice as well.

I like what they are doing in the NE. Smuttynose (NH) has been putting out consistently good beers as well.

The reporter was quite fond of the von Trapp offering Golden Helles (yes, The Sound of Music von Trapp's) inspired by Johannes' memory of Austrian beers.


Glad to see that the U.S. is shaking the perception of making bad beer.
