Beer for Breakfast: The Lost Abbey's Tomme Arthur
We've met a ton of cool beer people during this new bit of pre-weekend fun, Beer for Breakfast. Seattle Beer Week (which actually lasts 10 days and is still going) brings a ton of people from other cities up to drink, toast, and boast about beer.
We are super lucky to bs with the Lost Abbey's mastermind, Tomme Arthur, a man who brews some mean, corked beers. Using weird yeasts I've never heard like a mad scientist, Tomme creates amazing things at his San Diego brewery and brought a couple cool bottles by for Seattle Beer Week.
Lost Abbey Carnavale:
This beer, uses just enough funky yeasts to give it that cool Belgian saison flavor (look at me saying beer things). It's not over-powering in any way. It's crisp, light, and almost a bit citrusy. Even better, as it ages, it actually gets bolder and tastier thanks to some weird yeasts!
Lost Abbey Agave Maria
Wow. This is a bold, rich beer. Tomme told me about using tequila barrels in the process of making this dark spicy beer and it totally taste of Mexico's most popular spirit - no wonder since they're based out of San Diego. This inspired beer comes in a 12oz bottle to keep you from searching for a non-existent worm at the bottom!
Have a great weekend, and drive safely!
