The Bottle Apostle was right around the corner from where we were staying – the first time I had tried to go it had been closed already, but the second time I made it while they were still open. Yay Me! Looking at the website later they seemed to be much more of a wine shop, but there had also been a sign in the window saying the brew testament (big points for name) and there had been plenty – almost too many – beers to choose from. Or maybe I just noticed the selection since that’s what I was looking for. And I actually talked to one of the people working there – asked for recommendation of porters and/or stouts that I wouldn’t be able to get on the other side of the pond. In particular she suggested the Kernel Brewery. I left with a nice selection and a carrybag with their excellent logo.
