Quest featured an Ellida IPA with mango, pineapple and Amarillo hops. Don’t be misled by the fruit ingredients: the Amarillo addition keeps the sweetness in check.
I also tried my favorite Quest beer, Kaldi, cask-aged with blackberries. Again, the fruit flavor was very subtle, adding a little sweetness to this imperial coffee stout.
I came for one and stayed for three. After chatting with Lauren Harris, manager of Gowler Haus-Spartanbug, and Craig Kinley from the original Anderson location, I had a half pour of Melusine. A biere de garde (“beer to keep”), this beer really feels like Spring in your mouth. Sweet flavors intermingle with a tongue-tingling carbonation, making me excited for a warmer season and sipping beer on Quest’s lawn.

Nice Blog Craft Beer Chick. I also have found a fondness for Quest’s brews. I actually had a Golden Fleece at the Trappe Door this past weekend. Keep us posted on the local crafted stuff!
Thanks, Rick! Quest is growing on me, and I’m glad for it since I live so close by. I can’t wait for their live music nights to start up again!
