On Sunday Shawn and I found ourselves hungry, ready to watch the football game and he wanted a beer! After a short deliberation we found ourselves at the Casual Pint in the Vista and I am so glad we did!
We were instantly greeted by Doug, the manager and our "beertender" Ali! Both Doug and Ali were extremely knowledgeable on every beer they had (hundreds to choose from!) which made things easier than imaginable! As you may not know, I am not a beer enthusiast, well, that was until I got there! After a short discussion with Doug on the things I do and dont like in a drink he quickly returned with the perfect flight for me!
I ultimately found the Founders Rubaeus Nitro Fresh Raspberry Ale to be my long lost soul mate of beers! Above all else, look at how beautiful it poured!
Shawn fell in love with their Elysian Superfuzz! It was a beer infused with a blood orange flavoring brewed out of Seattle Washington! It was fabulous!
Of course nothing goes more hand in hand then beer and food! We were pleasantly surprised with the food options at our Casual Pint! They had everything from wings, to pizza, brats to salad! Of course we couldn't leave without the pretzel and beer cheese appetizer because, well, I LOVE all things cheese! It was phenomenal. I could have drank the cheese alone! It took all of my manners to resist licking the bowl it came in!
If your looking for a place in Columbia with a stellar beer menu, great, friendly service and fabulous eats look no further than The Casual Pint! They also host various events throughout the month, like a beer and chocolate tasting! We just so happen to be hosting our February Girls Night Out event on their next Beer and Chocolate pairing evening! We hope to see you all there! If you make it there before hand (run to the beer and cheese!) tell Doug we said hello! He wont disappoint you!
