    We had a blast. My favorite was the Bottleworks 12, by far. My wife preferred Deviation. Hope everyone had a great time!

    Bottleworks 12 was pretty flipping awesome :)

    Deviation and Bottleworks XII were both awesome.

    I also really enjoyed the Allagash Peeterman. That beer would be great to have on hand during the summer.

    I think Fou Foune took it for me. BWXII not far behind. Deviation was great but I put it on a pedestal in my mind and it couldn't live up to my mind-blowing expectations. Oh well. Still happy to have tried it at all

    Bottleworks 12 was actually towards the bottom for me, which on this particular day is nothing to be ashamed of. As far as raspberries goes, the Lost Abbey Framboise took the prize for me. Deviation was killer.

    Overall - just a fantastic event. I was pretty blown away by the list they were able to assemble.

    The Fou Foune and Framboise de la Rosas were my two favorites...I really liked the Bottleworks 12 as well. Oh and I of course loved all the other Cantillons they had on.

    Bottleworks XII and Fou Foune for me. The Classic Gueuze was great too.

    For me, the 2 I enjoyed most other than those I knew I would (Cantillon) were Firestone Walker's Agrestic and SloAmbic. I think amazing things will come from their sour program.

    The Agrestic was delicious. And I agree re: their sour program. Hopefully they start bottling a few soon.

    I love Lost Abby, consistent and quality.

    Haha, not sure if serious.

    Quality yes. Consistent no. Repeated carbonation issues are a problem to me, especially if they don't own up to them. I also think their prices are much higher than what the product deserves. There's a reason nobody buys red poppy when they can get supplication at 5 dollars less. Just opinion though. The framboise was great and I love deliverance, but I won't spend almost $20 for a 375ml bottle.

    I'm impressed with the massive number of drinks enjoyed by so many. You either have deep pockets or good friends. I limited my tastes to three: Fou Foune, Deviation, Lou Pepe 2007 and enjoyed them all - especially the Deviation, a beer I never thought I'd get a chance to enjoy. That plus lunch was big enough bill for me.

    Bottle Works XII was a clear winner for me

    This sounds like it was awesome.
    Back in Black and Sour Fest... what a good time for the wife to be out of town and me at home with the little one. Here's waiting for next year.

    Fou Foune was mindblowingly excellent. Really wish Cuvee De Tomme got more props though, that's a phenomenal beer.

    Is this a real thing?

    I'm headed over after work that evening so I'm sure the OMGRAREZ will be gone, but should still be a good time.

    Perhaps we should move this discussion to a new thread, lest people get confused by last year's date in the title.

    I get listing the beers alphabetically, but I wish they'd just list them in order of rareness so I know which beer to drink first. How else am I supposed to decide?!

    "I'll take the most rarest one please."
