Il Vicino

Il Vicino was a new brew. The Mexicito is brewed new the style of a Mexician lager with agave juice.

The beer has fruity after tones with mellow malty flavors. It has light body and is servered with a slice of lime. I think a orange slice would have gone well with the fruitiness. It would go well with fish, but Il Vicino doesn't serve fish. Bummer!

While at Il Vicino, I had the Brown ale which is hoppy for a brown ale. But, I will have to say that most Colorado Springs beer are over hopped for their style. I always enjoy this style of beer in Colorado Springs. Il Vicino's Brown has more haze than most.

Colorado Springs for Work and Vacation!

I am sitting in Colorado Springs getting some work done. Karen will be joining me on Friday for a few days of vacation.

Last night, I stopped by Jack Quinn's for dinner. I had a Guinness and soup which was great.

Jack Quinn's is great place for draft beer and great music. Frequently, the music will be Irish folk music.
