    No need to be a dick about it. You listed 8 BA's and 25-30 beers, it's a legit question to ask.

    I was with Islandboi8204 at that tasting last night and after about 12 or 13 beers split about 8 ways over 3 hours, we were just about done.

    Wasn't being a dick, just a smartass. :D We started at 1pm and finished about 10pm. We had 10 courses from the chef starting at 6pm or so until 9pm, so that kept us full as well. By the end, I was totally sober because of the spacing and pace...it worked out well for everyone.

    Yeah, I was amazed by how sober I was. Kind of strange.

    As for a "Pro" taking pics, here are a couple that I snapped that are my favorites:

    Thanks. Really glad I decided to stop every once in a while and take some shots, but even happier we had the pro to take most of them so I could sit back and enjoy the day. Good times!

    I'm a pro. Got a little tipsy in the evening but walked home sober. All about pacing.

    A good # of the bottles were Lambics/Gueuzes with lower ABV as well. That helped a lot, particularly in the beginning.
  9. What is the pricing for a professional to photograph a beer tasting? I've been doing it for free all this time like a sucker.

    Looks like your Veritas 010 actually had carbonation. The one I opened up a couple weeks ago was completely still :(
  13. Kaydogg

    Kaydogg Savant (385) Pennsylvania Jan 5, 2011

    quite a bit..cork jumped out with a big pop.. it was excellent..it was cool to try that and the upright Fantasia to compare peach sours
  14. Soonami

    Soonami Savant (455) Pennsylvania Jul 16, 2008

    Yeah I was about to make a joke that Chad would have to muster up a lot of strength to crank that cork out, but it came out nice and easy. There was a lot of carbonation in it though, definitely as much as the Cantillon beers
  15. I don't know but this seemed kind of epik. Lots of bottle variation in that Dave, but on average it was the best beer I've ever had. I definitely recommend grabbing a sixer of that brewski if you can.[​IMG]

  20. Armand/tommy was really good. Frambozen still had lots of raspberry in it but was a little plain, good overall.

    Forgot to mention that the last two unlabelled bottles were southampton peconic and shot in the dark (blackberry Girardin)

    I think other than the Black Top (which I haven't had) and the Tripel, the rest was good. The Shipwreck was really good, and Wookey Jack is fantastic. I think the surprice was that Anniversary, that was a damn good beer, probably the first from Shorts that I've had where I didn't hate it.

    Thanks for having me over Mike. I'll be back over for sure. I'm going to have to pick some good stuff up to share next time.

    I thought the Dancing Man was a great surprise , I would drink that everyday
    everything was pretty good and the company was better ..

    jsilva Savant (365) Massachusetts Nov 10, 2009

    Armand Tommy was great, pretty similar to the 02 oude vintage we opened and those were 2 of my fav of the night. As far as frambozen the fruit was def still in the nose but the taste not as much and.was pretty plain and forgettable. Not a bad beer but.certainly not in the same class as the other fruited stuff. The 05 lou pepe kriek was a sleeper for me as i thought it was very good.
  27. Keffa

    Keffa Savant (475) Ohio Jan 8, 2009

    Yeah, Dancing Man was very solid. I really think that it's probably the best wheat (save for GBH, which we discussed) that I've had to date. Dazara wants to go to Jungle Jim's soon, so we'll see what I end up bringing back.

  31. Blabaer 750 was Lou Pepe Blabaer. Sole comp was De La Seven, not BA seven. The french sour was Bulles des Vignes. There was also the black IPA from Kernel. I dont remember the 4th kernel bottle cause I missed it while slaving over a deep fryer.
