TNT Diner reader Barley Jim posted in this thread on the new Hop Jack’s restaurant in Bonney Lake that he was chagrined to be served a beer slushee at the restaurant. More specifically, he wrote, “The kid behind the bar took a VERY frozen glass and poured beer from a tap that had a 1 inch thick coating of ice all over it! The result was a beer slurpy! You Know… SLUSH! My beer foamed momentarily, gasping it’s last breath then turned to slush 1-2inches deep! DEAD! My beer was now DEAD, DEAD! ANYONE WHO LIKES BEER WOULD TELL YOU FREEZING IS DEATH! I sat there at the bar silent, starring in disbelief. My wife turned pale just watching me.”
Question: Had the beer at Hop Jack’s? Was it too cold for you?
It was way too cold for me. The Deschutes Black Butte porter had far less character and depth. I couldn’t taste the deeper coffee notes. It was total beer disappointment for me.
