Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Two Brothers Brewing Company isn’t that far from home from me and even closer to my place of employment. Unbelievably I don’t make it out there all that often. Now this is due for two main factors: I haven’t been blown away by their offerings and the last time I tried to go there for a few beers after work, they were packed.
The first factor doesn’t need an explanation but maybe the second does. I prefer places that are at best about 75% full. I like to have a place to sit and I don’t want to feel like a sardine packed into a tight little corner spot. Why? I am fat, tall, and just an all around (no pun intended) big person. I need my damn space.
Each beer I get from Two Brothers I usually put off drinking until the mood strikes me. Their new Resistance IPA was given to me (as a sixer) by a coworker of my wife. I have given him at least 18 beers in the past (I enjoy sharing) but I have never received anything back. No, I don’t give beer and expect returns until it gets out of hand. Wash that hand that takes care of you. Enough of me bitching.
I had four Resistance IPAs before I even rated it; one damn good beer. I think that Two Brothers has done a great job here and kudos to them. I wouldn’t say it is a hop bomb like some people desire before they give a beer a good grade but a beer that is well balanced, easy drinking, delicious beer. I have already bought another six pack and plan on keeping this one in the normal cellar rotation.
Now, with that review, don’t worry, I plan on giving them another stop by after work to try some on tap. I hope they continue to bring it strong as it would be nice to have an outstanding, sought after brewery that close. Enjoy!
