Ah, the good old Flat - I mean Lost - Abbey. Man, I'm bummed that the latest batch of Angels Share is carbonated and I can't use that joke anymore. So, I haven't been here during normal hours, but I did come for an event (Barrel Tasting Night '09), so I've earned the right to post a review because I shelled out 85 smackers for the damn thing only to be once again denied a chance to try Yellow Bus. Most elusive beer ever.

The place is basically a big brewery. There are fermentation tanks and a crapload of barrels where they are supposedly -bal aging all types of -bal aged awesomeness that may or may not end up carbonated. Very spacious, even for a big event like the barrel tasting. Not much in the way of ambiance besides that, but hey, it's a brewery and that's exactly the impression you get from it.

As for quality, well, it's Port/Lost Abbey. Their beers on tap are amazing. The bottle prices are a bit high at times, but the beer is very good. Tap prices are pretty reasonable. For this event, Vince cooked up some incredible food, but from what I understand they don't usually serve food here. Service is pretty good. The ladies at the bar usually poured me a drink within a minute or so, and I didn't sense any douchebaggery among the people working there.

Overall, a great brewery to visit. I'll definitely come by during normal hours sometime. The webcam there is a nice touch too. Don't ever go there when you've lied and told someone you're somewhere else!
