img_1278When the group left Defiant because of the wedding we all trouped over to Gentle Giant because none of us wanted to go home. I had already eaten so didn’t order food. Since I had never been there before I decided on a flight. This is how Gentle Giant does their flights, all six beers on tap, obviously they do not fill the pint glasses to the top. I only got 5 because one of the brews had maple in it. Allergies suck. They did allow me to get two of one so I still got 6 mini-beers. Normally when I get a flight I have one or two beers I am undecided on. Not the case here, all were pretty amazing. I liked all the beers in the flight. I would like it better if I had remembered to take notes, but I get intimidated in a crowd.

This brewery serves food, you can see the list on the blackboard, speaking of blackboards, what is it with blackboards and breweries? Is it a nod to old school, like some also have record players and actual records that are played on them? Is it because they are relatively cost effective way to change the beer when a keg kicks and a new one is tapped? I don’t know, I have never asked, maybe it’s in the fine print, “If you want to call yourself a craft brewery, you must list your beer in chalk on a blackboard”, except not all breweries do it. I’m not saying I have an issue with it, I am just wondering.

It is family friendly, no dogs allowed, and while I didn’t ask about tours, you can see the tanks from the tap room. They also have a big screen and the game was on, the player is holding on to his belt, and on Football Sunday they have specials. I learned that from following their Instagram.

Not much else to say, check out the photos below and if you’re in Pearl River, check them out!

 

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
