Scoped out Lucky Envelope Brewing in Ballard the other night; just one stop out of our four mini brewery crawl! I was waiting to order a beer and this couple chimed in that I had to try the Helles Lager. I usually steer clear of lagers, haven’t really liked them too much, but this couple was right on point! Crisp and clean taste, not as hoppy as I’m used to (probably why me and lagers aren’t the best of friends), but definitely enjoyable for the first beer of the night!
The reason I love Ballard so much, aside from the many many tasty breweries within walking distance from my apartment, is how friendly people are. Someone doesn’t have a problem with suggesting a beer or talking up their favorite brew. The beer culture is amazing around here!
