    Arcadia has a Baltic Porter on tap called Snowballs. It is by far the best Porter I have..I was told that it is brewed like an Eisbock with freezing and scraping involved. In comes in at a whopping 18%-20%..There was only 10 gallons of this left after the brewing process, so very limited.. its 8 dollars for a 6oz pour fyi..very good..

    This is an outstanding beer. I could not detect the alcohol in it, but my wife could. I'm going down there again tonight to see if there is any left.

    The brewery is also having a special sampling today of three ESBs for $5, each sample with a different new European hop variety that they want consumer feedback about. (You have to complete a survey form.) They are getting ready to release an ESB under a new name in bottles, so maybe these are the hops being considered?

    I'm not near Battle Creek but its cool that Arcadia is doing stuff like this and getting good results, hope I'll have a chance to try it at some point.
