Wasted on lust, perhaps.
Thanks for the info!
After reading this complaint for the 400th time I feel the need to explain the window/heat situation.
The building management agreed to not have the heat running in the event space beginning on Friday morning (for the sake of the beer then and the crowd to come the next day). They did not follow through on this promise. Leading up to the event and during the first session the building manager was swearing that the heat was off and that the windows could not be opened. Finally somebody said "screw it" and just tried to open the windows and viola. But please stop thinking the ICBG and FoBAB crew are too stupid to realize it is hot and that ventilation helps with that.
I agree. And it's hard not to when you are drinking beer after beer. This kinda goes with any other major beer tasting festival.
Looking forward to drinking some amazing beer with you first session people.
Pipeworks BBA Coffee Abduction. i want this sooo bad.
also known as the fart locker
Indeed! I'd love to crack some beers with you when I'm in town for FoBAB-maybe Friday the 15th? We can open some .rarz and listen to old Incubus CDs. Let's be in touch as we get closer to the event. I'll be coming in with a couple guys from my LA tasting group.
Cherry King Henry
Or... Pear King Henry?!?!
Pear & Cherry KH?
All we need now are 2 more flavors and the Goose blending station will be good to go.
Pear & Cherry King Henry aged for an additional 6 months in apple brandy barrels with cinnamon sticks. Boom.
Perry King Henry.
Sounds like one of Michael Jackson's kids
Or maybe they would source some of the barrels Letherbee used for their barrel-aged absinthe?
Or in a nod to Laffler, take barrels Few used for barrel-aged gin?
ETA: For the record, I think either idea would be gross but I would love seeing people fall over themselves to praise them just because they have 'King Henry' in the title.
I like the way you think.
My completely non-random speculation is that Fitger's Bourbon Ed will be there and fly under the radar again as one of the best BA Imperial Stouts.
do those exist? I've heard its a landlocked country
first FOBAB this year! I saw that you get 15 sample tickets...about how many beers are there at the event? I am assuming that 15 high ABV beers will be more than enough but I'm sure there will be so much more I want to try
There were 173 last year.
Shut out this year, if anyone has an extra please let me know!
I believe last year there was more than 140 beers there. 15 tickets is enough. I only used 13 last year.
Pro tip: Bring some little dixie cups and split samples with a friend so you can try more beers. You'll probably want to try far more than just 15 beers.
You need to get more intimate with your beer group if you're splitting samples by pouring into different cups. My group prefers the snowball method.
Salmon King Henry
This conjures up some disturbing mental images. I could imagine if this went viral... 5 guys 1 (beer) sample
Larry King Henry
Stephen King Henry
Martin Luther King Henry
There are so many variants that goose is leaving in the table.
King Henry's Wife
Can't wait to share more samples with you/10
For the curious, the bored, and the FoBAB newbies like me, here's a link to the BA recaps of last year's fest:
Speaking of Fitgers, I hope their Framboise is there...though it is a very small chance.
And it's not too hard to make a tray to keep them all organized. I've been doing this for two years with a group of tasting buddies. 15 tickets per person * 4 people = 60 samples each. A very enjoyable way to navigate the event.
Will share with nojuan. I come to get ripshit on -BALS.
Missed out on tix...if anyone has two extra or can't make it...let me know...either session works...thanks.
Against the Grain Shart Pants!
My first AtG beer and still my favorite.
I'm just glad I will be attending my first FOBAB. See you at the 6pm session
To those who were asking the benefits of one session over the other and why so many are looking for afternoon over evening... Besides the IMBIBE members, and the knowledge that you have a chance to try absolutely everything, I'm not sure there's much of a reason. The brewers are asking to bring a set amount for each half and not pour over that amount in the first half. This usually ends up with some beers closing tap somewhat fast. Also some people like not knowing the winners so you don't have to fight the lines for winning beers.
I prefer the night session. As far as I know, no beer was tapped out in the morning and I had the hance to try it all. Also, I like knowingwho won what as iI'm sampling, and instead of kegs being closed up at the halfway point, they are open until finished.
pretty much this.
funny, i recall last year's tickets selling much faster for the evening session and people were trying to trade up for the evening over the afternoon. i much prefer the afternoon as it lets me get home and sober up and party a second time. being that the gf works in the early afternoon, i was forced to get the evening session, which i also don't mind.
Ok which one of you is this...
