  11. Yo, on Thursday we're doing the Fulton War & Peace Release party. Tapping War & Peace (of course), but also Worthy Adversary, Patience Barley Wine, BUTCHER & THE BOAR KNOB CREEK SINGLE BARREL AGED LIBERTINE 2012!!!!!!! Plus Ringer, SCOV, and Blonde. Hope some of you can make it !!!
  12. It was still on last night as well. The bartender said they got more than they expected (2 kegs?) and thought it should last "a while."

  17. 10 Fidy and Mama's Little Yella Pils will be on tap and Dale's Pale and Old Chub will be in cans at 3 Squares tonight!!
  18. What does weediness taste like? Is it grassy like fresh hops or skunky like marijuana? Just curious.
  19. PieOhMy

    PieOhMy Advocate (515) Minnesota Feb 23, 2013

    I would definitely say there was something skunky to it.

    Backwoods Bastard on out in Minnetonka at Gold Nugget! I know that it is probably on half a dozen taps around the Twin Cities, but it is always nice when something like this makes an appearance out this way.

    I was really impressed by the lineup at Lift Bridge this weekend. Silhouette, Silhouette on Nitro, BA Silhouette, and Batch 500. That BA Silhouette blew my mind, especially at only $5 for a snifter. Well worth the drive from Minneapolis.

    Valley Tap had Hopslam on last night - was even on 2-for-1 for Happy Hour - even though it was not on the beer menu, which seems to have changed a little bit for the worse, in my opinion.
    Oh, and I didn't catch the actual price.
