    Cherry Rye, Coffee, Baudoinia on tap at Brixies in Brookfield right now, hurry! They also have bottles of Black Note. Say hi if you stop by, I'm in the alpha king hat at the bar.

    Anyone know if these kicked last night? They're all still listed on their beermenus page but that's never full proof.

    Cherry kicked at about 9:00 pm, yummy, rest was still going, when I left at 10:00, wasn't the madhouse I expected, the coffee was awesome. The regular infused through vannila was good also, but the Cherry was the best.
  7. any of these still available?

    - Baudoinia infused with vanilla beans
    - Baudoinia infused with Cocoa Nibs & Peppermint

    That is some "crazy shit". Friday it was regular BCS through those randalls (which incidentally they seemed to have inadvertently switched.) Passing Baudoinia through that process would seem to be at cross-purposes with the point of Baudoinia, being a more pure type of BCS. If true, I'm opposed to this practice.

    At least it is still on tap without the randall treatment, so that's a good thing.
  10. i agree with you on the cocoa nibs (baudoinia is already chocolatey enough) but vanilla baudoinia...i'm not sure if i could contain myself if i went.

    Vanilla CW BBS was tasty a few Fridays ago. I've heard good things about Vanilla BCS, though it wasn't very vanilla-ey last Friday for some reason, accounting for the switched taps. I guess either one is good for a taster, I just wouldn't want a full pour of Vanilla Baudoinia unless it was out of this world. That beer is already limited enough, who knows whether it will ever see the light of day after this release.

    I was there on Fri also, it was not very vanilla-y, but good anyway. Do they do the vanilla often?

    They've been doing this randall thing for several months now, and vanilla seems to be the most common one. They also had a coffee randall and the current cocoa/peppermint. Not sure if they've done a hop randall, though they should given that was the original application when Sam Calagione launched the trend.
  14. I think they were running gbh through an Amarillo Randall sometime in the last two weeks. I could have just been drunk and making shit up while browsing through beer menus. I think this happened though.

    They were running Gumball through through the hop rocket with Amarillo. Very tasty.
