went to the brewpub. a nice lively place with the futball game on. strange to have vietnamese food in such a germanesque surroundings but it works. one of the better beers i had on my trip. golden brown with a nice frothy head, spicey sweet nose with a flowery back feel. toasted malted crunch on the tongue with biscuit flavors and a subtle bitter hop ending. better then the lion brewpub.
