    I'd love to finally try Five and get another BA 15 Darkness, but I get the feeling this will be the most packed beer event in MN history. Not because of the list specifically, but the Superbowl crowd even a week early.

    I’m not sure if this this Barrel-Aged Silhouette or regular. The tweet is confusing.

    CBS on tap @ Junction 70 in Cottage Grove, they also have Lagunitas Willettized Coffee Stout & a lot of other great beers on tap. Food isn't too shabby either.

    That is fantastic news. When they opened I was hopefully for a place in town with some fun stuff on tap.

    Modist has a Mango Milkshake IPA on tap right now that I couldn't recommend more. I picked up 2 crowlers and wish I got 6. They're sold out now, but it's worth the drive for a pour. Probably the best IPA I've ever had.

    'Dawn Juan' on tap at Steel Toe Brewing. This was last brewed three years ago. Listed here as an American Barleywine, but my tasting, and Steel Toe's description puts the beer more in the style of American Strong Ale. More sweet than I expected, with chocolate, coffee, and marshmallow/vanilla as taste components. Backbone of darker roasted malts. Recommended for a winter comfort beer choice.

    I thought Dawn Juan was basically Before the Dawn with a coffee treatment?

    I did not get any barrel aging from 'Dawn Juan', but the two beers share the word 'Dawn'.

But I will make a point of getting there on Friday for the 2013 Patience. One of the most underrated beers in the Twin Cities, & I'm eager to see how it's aged.
