Did you then proceed to order 5 pitchers? That beer is amazing.
Had it last night at blues bar $12 for 10oz pour. Amazingly still on tap after two weeks. Definitely fudge flavor and less boozy than normal BCBS.
I also had it yesterday at Blues Bar. little pricey at $12 for a 10oz pour, but absolutely worth it.
As mentioned above, it does have a fudgier flavor than the BCS and slightly milder/smoother Bourbon taste to it.
is this in mount prospect, or the blue bar in river north, downtown chicago on clark?
Yeah, Mt. Prospect. And not that it helps you out, but I spoke with the manager and the next ones on tap once Baudoinia are:
Night Stalker (not sure which will be 1st)
and then BCBS
Glad I live 5 minutes away
Had it last night @Brixies. It's nice.
That event last night was like a less-sweaty FOBAB, darn near....
I saw that tap list they posted on Facebook.....unreal.
BallyDoyles in Bloomingdale has it on tap had some this weekend!! MmmmMmmm
Fischman is doing a complimentary Baudoinia Toast at midnight tonight. Also on tap will be Big John and Bourbon County Stout '12. Plus BCS Coffee, CW BBS '11 & '12 and CW BBBW '11 & '12. No Cover. http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=d1e2fd402e19748a05a50fcae&id=5d1c142b06
I had a glass at GT Fish &Oyster downtown. It was great!
i conveniently work down the street. inconveniently, it will tap before i'm back Wednesday afternoon.
Actually the ONLY bourbon distillery that rotates barrels is Maker's Mark. And barrels on lower racks evaporate at a lower/slower rate compared to higher floors in a warehouse.
Just went on at Small Bar Division.
Source? I find that interesting.
It's at Jerry's in Andersonville too.
It is actually true. They do rotate their barrels and are the only major company to do so.
Just a quick Google search will prove it.
Appreciate the links... Maker's say they hand rotate barrels... Im still not convinced. Maybe distilleries think they can mimmick this by blending after, I'm going to have to dig deeper tomorrow on my computer.
It was still on tap at GT as of last night!
i forgot about this. and thanks. looks like i'm taking a detour before i head home.
thanks again. just had my glass. a fine damn beer. based on the location, i'd be shocked if it tapped in the next 2 weeks.
11 bucks sir.
Yikes. $7 at Small Bar. You should stop there. I went Thursday and no one was drinking it.
Had it at FOBAB... its okay... nothing to go apeshit over.
Problem with FoBAB (and not really a problem but...) is that its hard to really appreciate anything as most of us are enjoying our 2oz and then rinsing / repeating with another great beer. Everything tastes really good (and if something stands out as amazing or bad you really know it is).
I have enjoyed Baudonia in a normal bar setting much more than I enjoyed the low storage barrel at FoBAB due to my ability to appreciate it and pick out nuances.
it was the 2nd beer i tried.... and I had plenty of it since the guy was offereing free pours. And I thought it was better than the other 3 variants fwiw. It is as good maybe slightly worse than reg bcbs.
I have enjoyed it much more now than at FoBAB as well. Setting/surroundings definitely impact enjoyment. Is it the greatest beer ever? No, but it is a damn fine one and anyone who enjoys BCS will prolly love this one.
They almost all blend to their flavor profile. Rotating is too labor intensive and reduces capacity.
Small bar kicked this afternoon
now you to tell me. wasn't bad though, i didn't have to go out of the way since i just had to 2 blocks and considering river north prices.
I also paid $12 at Blues Bar in Mt Prospect. Expensive, but I loved it!
RATS. Was thinking about swinging by there tonight...
Apeshit? I don't know but I thought the 2 glasses I had were fantastic! Would most definitely make it a point to try it again if I had the chance!
$8 for 10 oz pour at bally doyles downers grove... enjoying one now
$10 for 9oz @ Bangers & Lace, but at least I got to try it. DAMMNED good too, IMO.
