Worth Brewing

We went down to Worth Brewing tonight, takes less than 30 minutes door to door. Jon Guinea posts his beautiful la-de-da photos of big city beer. This is small town beer made by Peter Ausenhus in 10 gallon batches in Northwood, population 2050. Peter cut his brewing teeth at Summit Brewing up in St.Paul and then went small-time. As is normal, we were just out drinking beer and I didn't take my camera. We ordered three plates of assorted hors d'evoures and drank our way through a couple of 7-beer sample trays. We lined up the beers in order of favor, generally  leaning toward the IPA, oatmeal stout and a nice brown ale, tapering off to the lighter beers at the bottom.  The beer is all good - we ended up ordering a round of the oatmeal stout and the Field Trip IPA. The snacks were great, garlicky humus dip, and local sausage and cheeses. If you want more you can have it delivered from Soup's Pizza next door. Because the hors d'evoures were good we just grazed. In spite of spirited yelling and clapping, the Twins lost.  :-(

Here is another nugget. The Worth Brewery hosts jazz night once a week with live band. A new genera, Prairie Jazz?

What the hell is prairie jazz?

Damned if I know. Most jazz is urban. If a bunch of guys out in the cornfields are playing jazz, it HAS to be different than the guys in New York or Chicago.
