But they are selling vodka and rum in the mean time to supplement the income until the bourbon is ready. We came in right as they were closing – but we were able to chat with the head distiller for a few minutes. I also want to say they had the most AMAZING boubon candles! We bought a big one and it warms and scents up the whole house!
After learning about the newest bourbon in Danville, we decided to grab a beer at the Beer Engine Tap Room. The Beer Engine is actually Danville’s oldest brewery! (It’s kind of a town joke – it opened in 2011 – Danville is a SMALL town).
After trying to figure out what the heck their beers were – and what I like – the bar-keep settled on the Tremens Delirium for me. It’s a very fizzy light Belgian beer and let me tell you – he hit the nail on the head! I loved it! I loved it so much I went to Jungle Jim’s and bought a bottle ($10!!). There was absolutely no bitter after taste – but let me warn you – it packs a punch. One of these and I was HAM-JAMMED!
They have a very limited “menu” – I’m not even sure it counts as a menu – but they have some snacks for purchase. We got pretzels and beer cheese for $4. The beer cheese was really good and had quite a kick. It’s great to see the tap room movement spreading through the countryside.
And what a beautiful countryside it was. We had gone down on a Friday afternoon and came back at sunset and it was so beautiful. This photo is au-natural – no enhancements whatsoever. So beautiful.
