This is both a follow up post to one earlier this year on a new brewery in the neighborhood, as well as how it affects my life. Since opening late this summer, Prost has been a hit (I base success off of how my taste buds react) both with pallets and crowds. I have now made a handful of walks down to the place, and every time I have enjoyed myself. Here’s my breakdown of their brews (keeping in mind I am not a beer sommelier):
-Prost Pils. Pilsners are not my favorite beers to begin with, but a good one here and there is all right. Prost’s tastes almost exactly as their description suggests. It is a very smooth beer that has a delightfully bitter finish. Not as bold as Pilsner Urquell, but distinct nonetheless.
-Weißier (Hefeweizen). Hands down my favorite of Prost’s brews. Make sure you get a Maß, because you’ll want that much. Every time I drink Prost’s hef, I picture my stomach giving me a big hug for sending him this deliciousness.
-Prost Dunkel. Definitely an acquired taste, Prost’s dunkel is the perfect beer for a cold day. It’s rich in flavor, and I don’t think you could handle more than one.
-Prost Oktoberfest. I have never been to Munich, so this is subject to change, but this is my favorite Oktoberfest I have ever tasted. I went to GABF this year, and this one still takes the cake. It’s flavorful and crisp. Great for autumn evenings.
Best part about Prost may be the atmosphere. Always lively, food truck on site (later in the week and weekends) and a large open space make for some good times. Love cruising down there to meet friends at the end of the workday and walking home after. C’est la vie.
