So hoppy to be back!
today at 7:24 pm
My first trip to DryHop Brewers was during the last Pride Parade before the pandemic exploded. I had a beer while waiting for a friend, but I couldn’t take it all in given the festivities and the number of people inside. I stored this brewery in the back of my mind, as I was impressed by the beer I drank (it was dark and delicious). I also liked the inviting, rustic atmosphere with exposed brick.
Fast forward to 2021 and visiting the neighborhood for some murals. I was delighted after seeing their sidewalk patio and beer menu. I learned that DryHop focuses on hoppy beer, so it’s a good thing I have become a fan of that style.
I started with a refreshing Farmhouse Ale – Saison and a stack of crispy fries. Paper Machete offers notes of clove, pepper, peach, and lemon. My second beer was a Back Off, Bow Tie. This juicy, tasty Hazy IPA has notes of orange, pineapple, peach, and passionfruit. My taste buds were jumping for joy when I left.
This was the perfect way to relax on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon. DryHop Brewers is in the eclectic Lakeview neighborhood at 3155 N. Broadway. A food menu is available offering bites, salads, sandwiches, and pizza. My goal next time is to try one of their delicious-sounding pizzas.
Take a stroll to Weisman Park to view this captivating new mural by Ryan Tova Katz. The park is less than a mile from DryHop and a nice little walk. “Livvy” is one of the reasons I found myself in the area.
