    So I've accumulated a number of Jester King beers and am planning a tasting with some local BAs. Trying to decide on what the best order would be. Any thoughts/comments are greatly appreciated.

    Here is the list. We will likely be opening some other stuff along the way to mix it up.
    1. Black Metal Farmhouse
    2. Bonnie The Rare
    3. Buddha's Brew
    4. Commercial Suicide
    5. Gotlandsdricka
    6. Beer Geek Rodeo
    7. Weasel Rodeo
    8. Whiskey Barrel Rodeo
    9. Le Petit Price
    10. Mad Meg
    11. Noble King

    This would be my order based on style and profile. Think this would smoothly work by breaking/opening some heavier flavors with lighter farmhouse/sours to cut through (as in-betweens and give their flavor more as well). And then you end it with the Weasels side by side to compare. Finally wash down, on a not so heavy note, with the wild (and not to weigh your mouth down for the day with a stout...that usually sucks after a lot of drinking). Like I said, this would be my personal preference. Hope it helps in anyway.

    1. Commercial Suicide - English Mild 3.3
    2. Bonnie The Rare - Weisbeer 3.7
    3. Le Petit Prince - Farmhouse Ale 2.9
    4. Gotlandsdricka - Smoked 6.6
    5. Black Metal Farmhouse - RIS 9.3
    6. Noble King - Hoppy Farmhouse 5.3
    7. Mad Meg - Saison Farmhouse 9.5
    8. Beer Geek Rodeo - Smoked Chipotle IS 10
    9. Weasel Rodeo - Coffee Chipotle IS 10
    10. Whiskey Barrel Rodeo - Whiskey Oatmeal IS 10
    11. Buddha's Brew - Wild 4.7
