A couple weeks ago, while lurking for too long around New Beer Distributors, I ran into a guy that shared my passion for discovering beer. We also talked fantasy sports, and we finished a keg of Founders Breakfast Stout with the folks that run the place.
That seemed to be enough to plan a beer and football day. My girl wanted to know what he did. I couldn’t answer.
But he was on BA!
So we planned, and Sunday played host to a couple of my friends, a new buddy CooperEllis, and bombers/bottles of the following: -Deschutes Abyss ’09
-Ommegang Zwaar Blond (test batch)
-Great Divide Yeti ’07 and ’08
-Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout
-White Birch Espresso Imperial Stout
-Cigar City Maduro Oatmeal Brown
-Saranac Pale Ale (hydration)
-Pelican Pub India Pelican Ale
It was a day with heaven on the palate, and hell on the guts.
Maybe a new beer rating category should be introduced: day after.
Epic Beer Day: A+
Day After Epic Beer Day: D-minus
Still, I’d do it again.
