Threes Brewing is huge! I know that’s a weird way to start an article, but dang. There was a line around the block for a concert in the upstairs section, there were booths by the kitchen, there was table and bar seating by the bar, and there was an additional heated tent outside the back door. Despite the size it was still packed and took us a little while to find a seat. No option for a flight and a small menu by The Meathook restaurant were a little disappointing, but we ordered a pretty killer burger and some pints.
My first of Threes was Here Ya Go pale ale. This one was exceptionally citrusy with a nice sweet to bitter ratio. Here Ya Go is incredibly fresh, well balanced and crisp right out of the can.
Next up was There You Are (pacifica and loral) IPA. There were Threes varietals on the menu and I considered a vertical of all Threes, but went with my taste buds instead. There You Are offered up a nice limey citrus with a subtle sweetness and finish slightly dry. Not the very best of IPAs, but a nice porch sipper.
My last pint was Find and Replace oatmeal stout. Again, not my favorite of the style, but I was really intrigued by the flavors going on here. Find and Replace was a tad on the bitter side, but was followed by a pleasant earthiness and an almost root or nut-like quality. My taste buds are saying unsweetened sassafras.
I don’t have anything bad to say, but I was a bit underwhelmed. I enjoyed my burger and Here Ya Go, but felt a little too cramped and wasn’t really wow’d by the other brews. All in all I give Threes Brewing a 7.5 out of 10.
