There is ample variety of beers at Golden Gate for you. The Red Rivet is a great one they have which warms you as it first touches your taste buds, then comes the malty balance of the finest barley and hops to construct an ale worthy of the style Scottish Ale. The Whistle at The Blonde is a Belgium blonde that has the sweetness of a blonde walking down the street, yet enough composure to let you know she is in charge. This blonde uses sweetness to lure you in, charms you with her hoppiness, and then leaves you with a dry finish. They build all their beers according to the traditional Scottish recipes, and then as in all things American, make it bold.
