In the first of two beer videos this week, today we are drinking two beers out of the Boondocks Brewing Tap Room & Restaurant at 108 S. Jefferson Ave, West Jefferson, North Carolina. In 2013 they added a large covered outside dining area that locals call the “Boon Deck”. In 2014 they opened the new “Brew Haus” just up the street as an events venue. Their Smokey Top 3Top-3Hop IPA was brewed using a combination of 3 different hops which were added at 3 different times and then dry hopped resulting in a citrusy-floral finish. This smoked version has a hint of smoked malt added. The Blue Ridge Brutal Brew is the brown ale which is under carbonated on purpose and is the brew they serve Blue Ridge Brutal Bike Race riders after the race helping to avoid additions of too much gas to the rider’s stomachs.
