Far Field Beer Co. opened on Saturday after months of doing to-go only and here is my report on the beers and the taproom…
Feller Hoppy Pilsner – very toasty and malt forward. Not much in the way of hoppiniess though. if sold as lager would work better for me.
Home Range IPA – quite dank. heavy bitterness. pine first and foremost. a little one note. many people ordered it but it lacked depth.
All Terrain Cream Ale – my favorite of the three. no head to it at all though. other than that it has a nice taste to it. a little refining and a little more body and it will be solid.
The taproom is a lovely little spot in the middle of a fast moving Rosecrans Avenue. It is tucked in between auto shops, thankfully they have a nice big sign to guide you in. big roll up doors to a small outdoor patio. long reverse shaped L bar with comfy wooden stools. 7 beers on tap on opening day with 3 IPAs, a hoppy pilsner, a cream ale, a California Common and a Berliner Weisse. 10 barrels tucked into the corner might already be in use though I saw no stouts on the menu. Nice metalwork touches on the upstairs that match the design of the logo and merch. Though the second floor seemed empty at present.
