While in Napa last week, the second beer I was talked into was Grand Teton Brewing Co.’s Bitch Creek ESB.  It’s an American Brown Ale and the first beer I’ve had from an Idaho brewery.  I asked the bartender for a nutty brown ale and she really delivered.  I love that I’m in an area where the bartenders really know their beers (and have good beers to know about).

  It poured a dark hazy brown with a tan head and some decent lacing on the glass.  It smelled strongly nutty with some malt.  The taste was mostly nuts and caramel with a slight fruitiness.  It was a nice, smooth, moderately carbonated drink.  I really enjoyed it, and not just for the clever name.  This is going on my list of go-to beers.
