Dark Abbey Day at Harriet Brewing

Sarah McGee / Heavy Table

Yesterday was a big day for Longfellow: Minneapolis-based Harriet Brewing — the newly founded brewery — debuted its Tasting Room and started selling growlers of Dark Abbey, a Belgian Dubbel-style ale conditioned for eight weeks.  Although the event was festive (it featured live music by Lonesome Dan Kase), it had a serious side as well; there were petitions set out for people to sign in support of the legal changes needed to facilitate Surly’s proposed brewery.

    Nice post, but “How was the beer?!”

    I didn’t get a chance to pick up a growler this weekend. I have had a couple of the West Side and enjoyed it quite a bit. Has anyone posted a review on Dark Abbey?

    The Dark Abbey sample I had was good, but I’m dealing with a wicked head cold and am waiting until it’s over to crack open my growler.

    Dark Abbey was nice, but I was there last weekend too for Westside IPA and I’d give it the slight edge.
