I absolutely loved the Meme, his bretty, spot-on clone of Belgium's Orval. The wines on draft are simple but fun and different (Zweigelt rosé, effervescent Txakoli), and the cocktails were surprisingly excellent and carefully made, from a standard dry martini to subtly fruited twists on whiskey classics and an Aperol spritz on draft. But the kitchen also turns out several things worth paying attention to - many of them available for the paddle-shaped Hygge boards, which allow you to mix and match up to five from an ever-changing list.
At Hygge, he operates the independently branded Brewery Techné (yet another esoteric name derived from the Greek for "craft"), which is set behind a half-transparent wall in the lounge area framed by reclaimed windows.
And so far, the best of his ever-changing array of seven house drafts have trended toward deeply malted styles, from a doppelbock (Exaggerator), to a potent sticke-altbier (Germantown Sticke), a roasty, coffee-black Belgian milk stout (La Vache Noire) and an amber Scottish ale with a whiff of smoke.
