So, I’ve mentioned it from time to time, but my hometown has a long history with radiation. The area was built up in the 40s as part of the Manhattan project, and the plutonium used in Fat Man (one of the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan by the US) was produced here.
There are relics from our heritage around town, and today I showed the fiance one of our nuclear themed things.
It’s a small brewery, and it’s in a building that was, back when my daddy moved here in 1970 an A&W drive in. (They still serve A&W in the real glasses in tribute to that)
The beers are named to reflect the whole “atomic” thang
Not going to pretend this was like earthshatteringly good or anything, but you know, it’s a lot better than bud light. And in a small town, that tends to be what you get…
For our food we started with a salad
And we shared two slices of pizza (chicken, red bell peppers, and tomato) plus a chicken pesto sandwich
And, best idea ever, you can get a small B-Reactor Brownie with ice cream and a chocolate sauce made with Plutonium Porter. FOR A DOLLAR
The only thing that would’ve been a better ending to a meal would be two of these.
Hope you’re having a great week!
