Personal whale harpooned and killed. Maple tripple! Thanks Josh!!!
The food was amazing, 'Betsy Chili' took the cake.
A little dessert. (Did a vanilla float with this one)
Crappy ending picture. Another big thanks to Josh for hosting, and packing heat with some amazing bottles!
We had some friends come over for dinner Saturday and this is what it looked like at the end of our night. Our wives said,
"I thought you were just going to try a couple of beers tonight?"
I see Hibernal in the picture, but not in your list!
Had this share a few weeks ago with @EA728, @ajaylock, @allies_dad, @wiingman, and @Lehighace06.
My favorites of the night out of the beers I had never had before were Ever Weisse and Brother Soigne'. Cinnamon Roll'd WnB was a personal whale of mine and was also excellent. I think a couple of the bottles aren't pictured here, like the CCB Cucumber Saison.
And the Westvleteren was the Blond, for those keeping track at home. I don't think anyone at the table had ticked that one before (I've never had 8 or 12 either, saving 12 for my 1000th untappd checkin ), so it was pretty awesome to have that.
There was also a 2nd Tired Hands growler, and one or two others I think as well. Good times!
Yea... that was a little "pre-game" tasting. We felt it was just a little too different from the others to include in the regular tasting.
Oh okay, that makes sense. What did you think?
Opened up a few bottles the other night. Small, but all of the beers were fantastic. Looking forward to the next one. Cheers to all you beer advocates and whalers!
A nice wednesday with the KC gang (@trevor_s @PeakedInHighSchool @scotlyn911 @Thishops4u @dujayhawk )

Last night - in order of appearance:
Not pictured, but still enjoyed:
Dogfish Head - World Wide Stout
Fiddlehead - Second Fiddle
Lawson's Finest - Sip of Sunshine
Lagunitas - A Little Sumpin' Extra Ale
Tilquin - Oude Gueuze
New Glarus - Oud Bruin
Grey Monday was the unanimous winner, followed by DB Jesus, and 16.
Of the non stouts, A Little Sumpin' Extra won the honors from the majority, I believe.
Another great night of drinking with friends.
Thanks for hosting Paul and Vicki ~ Cheers!
A friend has been talking about doing a huge Bruery tasting for a few years. It finally happened last weekend.
Not pictured are a few years of Tart of Darkness.
There were 5 of us and it was by far the best night I've had drinking beer.
My wife and I and another couple not BA'ers
What the 2nd one?
Any noticeable difference in the Tart of Darkness vertical? Or vertical of the others?
Very nice! I'm gonna do a bible belt vs bomb night. Did your group rank these at all?
Wild Streak from Brooklyn.
Last week's get together...
I skipped out on the multiple years of ToD (only had one) so I can't say for sure on those. For the BT, there was definitely noticeable differences. 09 and 11 were my favorites from that vertical and a few others agreed. I stopped taking notes after the BT but I recall noticing differences in GM and CR but couldn't give you specifics. Less hazelnuts, more chocolate notes, etc. Typical characteristics when doing verticals I'd say. Some things come in/out of balance as you move up or down the vertical. We started with the most recent years in all of them and worked to the oldest.
One word.... DRUNK!!!
Everything was done blind and with 4 other co workers. Ended up going Huna, Abraxas, Cake and Bomb in order of best to worst with a semi functional aggregate scoring system.
Happy birthday to me, also there were like 10 more bottles not pictured.
Finally made it to Montreal the other weekend for a buddys 30th:
Then when we got home:
2011 120 minute

some crappy Pineapple IPA
