Two Roads Has a New Brew on Tap!

Henry's Farm Doppelbock -- with the first sip I knew this was a winner for Two Roads Brewery!

When I headed over to Two Roads Brewery last night for no reason other than to enjoy a nice fresh pint of Honeyspot Road White IPA I wasn't expecting anything new on tap. I was pleasantly surprised when I spied an unfamiliar tap head among the familiar ones.

There was absolutely no doubt as to what I was having. A Henry's Farm Doppelbock!

With the first sip I knew this was a winner for Two Roads! True to the style, there is a strong malt presence along with hints of fruit. A touch of tartness and the bittering effect from the hops balances out this otherwise sweet brew.

The only problem I see with Henry's Farm is that it goes down way too easy and is far too drinkable.

What made this beer better for me was when I heard the back story to the name. Unlike all the other Two Roads beer that have names related in some way to Stratford, Henry's Farm is so named after the grandfather of Two Roads Brewing CEO, Brad Hittle. Grandpa Henry had a farm in rural North Dakota and every year he would brew a batch of beer out in the barn -- a doppelbock.

Henry's Farm is a fitting honorarium to Brad's grandfather. I think Henry would be proud!

Cheers!

Great beer and a great story behind the name.
