O’so Night Train
What made you recommend this particular brew? What’s it taste like?
We just got this in the beginning of March and it’s been a popular pick! The nose on this brew took me by total surprise. Sweet vanilla notes were very present and what can I say, I’m a big fan of Vanilla porters & stouts. There is a nice roasty, creamy, and definite coffee notes present. Has a medium body with a dark brown color.
Mhmm.. sounds yummy! We’ll be sure to give it a try! So now, a little about you! What’s your history with Binny’s and what’s the best part of the gig?
I’ve been with Binny’s for 8+ years now and I really enjoy interacting with the customers about what interests them. It’s a true pleasure to see their eyes light up when you show them some special new beer that they absolutely must try. It reminds me of when a child opens up a Christmas gift and the pure excitement that radiates out of them. I’ve heard a customer more than once say looking at our beer wall is like being a kid in a candy shop. Need I say more?
