281/2099)  The Roost, La Salette:  Dakota Pearl Ale (DPA) by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm, Ontario:  *1/2;  14 ibu;  starts dry but there is a sweet finish;

Dakota Pearl is a variety of potato.  The story is they wash sliced potatoes in a "pre-brew" of their dry ale which not only prepares the potatoes for the fryer and it also adds another dimension to the resulting beer.

282/2100) The Roost:  Country Pilsner by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm of Ontario:  21 ibu  *1/2; brewed with a blend of hops;  dry and fruity with a dry finish;

La Salette is just north of Delhi.  This is quite an operation.  As described it is a farm with a brewery.  The Roost is on the grounds, upstairs from what might best be described as a general store featuring their aforementioned potato chips, peanuts and other home grown goodies.

283/2101) The Roost:  Unleashed IPA by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm of Ontario:  **;  48ibu;  sweet maltiness offsets mildly bitter citrus notes;


I brought a tin of this home.

284/2102)  The Roost:  Country Lager by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm of Ontario:  *1/2;  22 ibu;   crisp and malty central European style;  

Yet another flight.

285/2103) The Roost:  purebRed Red Lager by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm of Ontario:  **;  a red lager with sweet toffee notes that linger to a balanced finish;

The menu here is pretty small - mostly numerous variations on burgers and grilled cheese but I count this as a point in favour.  It is a certainty that the food will be fresh.

286/2104) The Roost:  3D Triple Chocolate Stout by Ramblin' Road Brewery Farm of Ontario:  **;  brewed with cocoa nibs;  the 3 D's are Devilishly Dark and Delicious;  rich dry mocha flavours;
