Sarah's Beer of the Week 02.01.18

This week I decided to check out Optimism Brewing Company in Capitol Hill.  For starters, I wasn't expecting it to be so big (technically a 'that's what she said' joke does fit here).  The room is large, huge ceilings, tons of seats and even a play area for toddlers.  I also wasn't expecting such a wide variety of beers.  Lastly, I wasn't expecting a 'no cash and no tipping' business.  All of these were pleasant surprises, as was the beer.  I opted for the Moxee, a PNW IPA.  They do offer samplers, but sometimes a girl just wants what she wants.  And for me that's a nice hoppy IPA.  Moxee had all the right things going on.  Hoppy, flavorful, pine (but not like sucking a conifer), and good body.  Nice level of carbonation, and 5.9% ABV.  Very delightful brew.  I was meeting some friends for dinner, or I'd like to have tried some other styles.  I'll be back, and I'd suggest checking it out for yourself.
