Blue Point Takeover at The Pour House

Blue Point Brewery (@bluepointbrewer) is now following Ferment Nation (@FermentNation) on Twitter!  Couldn't come at a more appropriate time, since we here at the Nation have recently had more access to the brewery's offerings.  Back in the day (a few years ago, anyway) our introduction to Hoptical Illusion was intriguing... The Philly Craft Beer Fest has been hosting the brewery for the past few years, and we were impressed by the flavorful yet drinkable beers.  Just last night, El Presidente got a chance to catch a few pints at the Pour House in Haddon Township, NJ where Blue Point took over the taps this week.

Here are the Tweets from the expedition:

Rastafarian Rye: Nice n smooth, dryish

Hoptical Illusion: Just as drinkable as Rasta Rye, a lil lighter, lil more floral

Spring Fling APA: Weirdly dry yet malty. Darker than expected; groovy!

Didn't get a chance to check out the Toasted Lager or the Blueberry Ale but the Sour Cherry Imperial Stout was pretty tasty.  Just had a sample of this one (at 9.2% abv, it wouldn't have made much sense to do a full pour) but it was plenty flavorful without being ridiculous.  I must say that I will be checking the local shelves and taps for some more Blue Point offerings.  And thanks again for the follow, guys!
