Our weekly gathering for Meatless Monday was diverted to the Olive on Main in Laurel. It was the first visit to this Greek Restaurant for all of us.
When I asked about the craft beers on tap, the waiter seemed puzzled. I had noticed Heavy Seas and Jailbreak tap handles when I walked in, so mentioned those breweries. “Oh yeah,” he said, “Jailbreak has a dark beer. Do you want a taste?”
“Sure,” I said. Expecting something like an amber or red, I was surprised when an actual amber sample came out. When I took a sip, I knew. They had the elusive Van Dammit on tap. I was in heaven.
In celebration of finally getting my hands on the Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Van Dammit, I order a gyro, veering away from our veggies Monday tradition. It and the side of hummus were a real hit.
