    Shouldn't it be called "The Day After 5/26" since it's on 5/27?

    I think they forgot a colon...."The Day After: 5/27". Not sure if that makes sense either...maybe a hyphen should be there....

    Most of that stuff has been on tap since Friday (sans hopslam, cantillon and goose stuff). People should stop in good beer bars on non event days.

    LO staff was awesome IMO at the 3 PM start. It was jammed with people at the bar and in the back, and they did a great job getting that 1st service going. As stated above, Cantillon and Cherry Rye were gone by the time we left @ 5:15, and it was starting to thin out then. Had both of these plus BA Plead the Option, Parabola and Dark Horse Militiagan. Militiagan was one I would likely not have again. It was malty with maple, caramel, honey flavors. Flavors definitely follow the ingredients, like maple/brown sugar oatmeal. Finished pretty dry, which I didn't anticipate.

    Why would you not have it again ?

    You did not like it? Or you do not think you will have the opportunity to drink it again?

    Funny thing is the event the other week had a far better list but this one seemed more popular.

    It's one of those "glad I tried it, but it's not for me" type of beers. Maybe it needs some age??
