Quick Hit--Bittings Winter Cockle Warmer
Made a stop at JJ Bitting's in Woodbridge last night after checking out the fabulous toy train display in the nearby Barron Arts Center. Ordered up a Winter Warmer from the comely barlass, and came away very pleasantly surprised. Well-balanced, with notable, but not cloying, spice notes, a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel and a delicious flavor, it had a distinct Old Fezziwig character. And, as it was Happy Hour, it was only $2.50. The beer will warm your cockles--kilt-covered or not-- at any price, however. Kudos to Brewer Sheehan for an excellent job!
