Recently my husband suggested we check out Pig Minds brewing in Rockford, IL. I was shocked, because they only serve vegan food, but since he loves me (or didn't read the online menu) he wanted to go for dinner.

So off to dinner we went. We had met the two brewers a few weeks earlier at a tap takeover at Chain O'Lakes brewing, which is conveniently located 10 minutes from our house. The guys were very friendly and I had heard some really good stuff about their vegan menu so I was excited. The beer at the tap take-over was good so we had high hopes.
I immediately decided that I wanted a flight. 10 5oz pours was enough, I was assured by our server, for both of us to share... so I begrudgingly shared.

The beers that we had in our flight were: Southy Bitch Slap, Vanilla Bitch Slap, Mellifluous, Old Man Withers, Cold in the D, Barrel Aged Flame Thrower, Sweep the Leg, Wild Sour Series: Here Gose Nothin' From DESTIHL brewery, and Serpent's Stout from The Lost Abbey. (You can check out Pig Mind's beers here)
I have to say, the beer were good, we bought two bombers to take home. But the food was the star. I mean look at these garlic fries! That is garlic, not cheese, GARLIC!

And because I can't resist plugging the brew fest, Look at our awesome glasses that you get upon entrance. Fancy aren't they?
