    Hey y'all. First Sunday of the month is coming up quick, so I figured I'd start a thread about the monthly tasting.

    I know this Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday... will the tasting still begin at 3pm at Draught House or perhaps earlier? My team isn't in the big game, so I'm ambivalent on the time. I've got some nice selections to bring this month since I missed the Jester King Anniversary Party.

    This is why today is a great day for a beer tasting. Smaller group, bigger pours of the good stuff.

    I'm bringing some Crooked Stave (Batch #1 WWB) and Captain Lawrence (Barrel-Aged Golden Delicious)

    Also a fiancé who likes to take 1 sip of my beer and make funny faces who will probably be nursing some cider the entire time.

    Here's a list of all the beers from this month's event, in case anyone wasn't keeping track. I've still got my Stone 2009 IRS to bring next time since I think many in the group would've keeled over if I broke into that towards the end of the event. :)

    Three Floyd's Gumballhead
    Firestone Walker Sucaba (2012)
    Stone Enjoy By 02.15.13
    Kuhnhenn Brewing BBA 4th Dementia Olde Ale
    Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious
    New Glarus Moon Man Pale Ale
    Pipeworks Abduction
    Sint Bendictus Achel Extra Bruin
    Russian River Consecration (Batch 001!)
    Stone Quingenti Millillitre 11.11.11 Aged in White Wine Barrels
    Fantome Boo! (only drain pour [well, empty glass pour] of the night, tasted like burnt rubber)
    Fantome Hiver
    Jolly Pumpkin Fuego del Otono
    Stillwater As Follows
    Russian River Pliny the Elder
    New Holland El Mole Ocho
    Bell's Hopslam (2013)
    Troegs Nugget Nectar (never had it before, this shit is delicious)
    Ballast Point Indra Kunindra (one of the best smelling beers I've ever had... absolutely amazing)
    Founders Imperial Stout
    Founders Breakfast Stout
    North Coast Old Stock Ale (2008)

    missed it again this month. I was to tired after work, and the Super Bowl was on when I get home. Wish I would have gone now :(
