    That's a good score. I am hoping to drink a ton of it during Ogre Fest.

    Honorable mention (from me) to Funkwerks for Monarch and their Belgian IPA.

    Absolutely. I probably won't get up there much on the first couple days, but I'm camping a bar stool from Wednesday on. I also heard from people in the know that this year has the potential to be really good. I will hit you up when it gets closer.

    Maybe not the best, but certainly well worth mentioning, Moonlight Brewing Co.

    For me it was Red Saturnalia on nitro tap. The pour at first looked golden but settled on a amber red body with a light golden fluffy head. So much hops in the aroma and the beer nearly put me in a coma. I didn't even mean to rhyme there but that beer nearly brought me to tears.

    Founders CBS is always pretty amazing on tap.

    I had mine at Dieu Du Ciel's brewpub, and it was a collab between them and The Alchemist called "Morality". Best IPA I have ever tasted... just an explosion of tropical fruit in my mouth. I honestly didn't think such a taste could possibly come from a beer... I was dead wrong!

    Okay, tree hugger for the non-barrel aged. Barrel aged: Kraken, I could drink this everyday, one of my all time favorites.

    I thought it tasted/smelled like butthole, but I got literally the last 1-2 oz off of the Keg at WLV and I fear I didn't get the proper experience.
