|A massive cup of coffee to start the day off|
I was invited to dine at Sunset for their Beer Brunch celebrating the Shorts Showcase this past Sunday morning. I headed over unsure of what to expect, and was shocked to find that beer enthusiasts from all over Boston (and beyond?) were lined up outside Sunset ready to dig into beer inspired brunch menu items, and, of course a some of this legendary beer. One heck of a way to start off a Sunday Fun day right?

I decided to go to the sweeter variety next and picked up my glass of Joyous Almondo, touted to having the same flavors as an Almond Joy. Chocolate was definitely prevalent here, resulting in a sweet beer that was not unpleasant, but remarkable. The expected almond and coconut flavors took a backseat here, and weren't as prevalent as I had hoped, but it was a delightful dessert wine.

My all time favorite however was the Hopstache. This was touted on the menu of having real grapefruit flavor, and I looked forward to seeing if they were able to achieve this result. I was beyond impressed with how much grapefruit flavor they had jammed into this little beer. The initial flavor made me feel as though I was simply drinking a glass of real grapefruit juice, as the liquid made its way down my throat then I began to get the familiar beer flavors. This was an intensely flavored beer, but incredibly refreshing. I would love to drink a nice pint of this one on a hot summer day.

I have such fond memories of Sunset from my post-collegiate Allston days (many moons ago)... I never knew they did brunch. Looks pretty reputable!
Great review of the beers - the grapefruit one sounds pretty impressive!
What an interesting mix of beers. I didn't realize Sunset did brunch. How was the food?
