    Going to try to make it. We'll see what my schedule and budget can handle as I'll be coming from Indy now.
     
  3. I don't believe there was a limit last year. This year may be different, I'm not sure.
     
  4. Brewery only, I'd imagine.

    That's quite a taplist. Might have to make the trip this year, if I can convince the wife. Would make a nice little Saturday/Sunday trip.

  15. Snozzleberry Griffen: An instantly appealing magenta colored American Wheat Ale made with Oolong tea and blackberries. The rich berry filled aroma suggests an overshadowing of the soft flour-like contributions of the malted wheat. As expected, crisp tart fruity flavors create a pleasantly sour and slightly tangy mouthfeel that leads into a lightly acidic, and semi-dry finish.

    Alien Einstein
    Stroker Ace -- Session IPA w/ Sorachi Ace, Simcoe, and Citra. Made with the final runnings of Aorta.
    Mr. Biscuits

    Is Stray Cat the same as the Salt of the Earth that was brewed for Beggars Banquet's anniversary? That was tasty. The description sounds similar.

    Let's just hope that Double Hangin' Frank is better than Aww Jeah. Really wish I didn't buy a half a case of that last year.

    Protip: Try the beer on tap before buying your case.

    Steimie Initiate (0) Michigan Jan 7, 2012

    Aww Jeah is a fantastic beer, IMO. However, your Protip is a good idea for pretty much any beer.

    Anonymous1 Savant (420) Illinois Mar 19, 2012

    Yeah I made two mistakes that day: buying a half case of Aww Jeah and getting 8 bombers of Dark Lord. That was a LONG day.

  39. Mr. Biscuits: A reddish brown American ale layered with biscuity malt characteristics, fruity yeast esters, and slight nutty aromas. Light grain flavors and a red apple sweetness provide a distinct tang before a dry bready finish.
