Darwin’s Brew House: Master Flavor Maker Dives Into Brewing
Darwin has been rockin’ my socks for years, catering to our town’s culinary needs for quite some time. So, when he said he was opening up a brewery, the community was hopeful and excited to see what this master flavor maker could turn out.
Umm, he turned out Ayawaska, a Belgian dubbel that tastes of caramel, toffee and bubble gum. Say what, right? Also say, “Pour me another,” because you are definitely going to want a refill. Several interesting concoctions line the back wall at Darwin’s Brew House, boasting notes of Peruvian influence, like Amazonian peppers or plantains or cloves. The light, airy atmosphere lends itself to a lovely afternoon hangout and beer names like Chapo and Charapa put a smile on your face.
Darwin has been focusing on beer pairings at his Sarasota restaurant, carefully selecting flavors for dinner matchings that will make you swoon. Darwin earned a name in this town many moons ago as a culinary whiz kid and it looks like this heavyweight wants to keep his title.
