Karen and I stopped Il Vicino for beer and dinner tonight. The staff was great. Karen had the amber and was given a free oatmeal stout for us helping clear the outside table because the raining coming down on their condiments.
Karen enjoyed both beers. She thinks the stout was a well-balanced beer with coffee over tones that didn’t overwhelm the style of the beer. I had the IPA, which was not as hopped as most IPAs in the Colorado Springs area, but hopped well for IPA. (Colorado Springs breweries over hop most beers.)
By the way, the pizza was great, too.
