Woo #sourbeer. Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge for my brother in law, Girardin black label #gueuze, 2010 Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien #grandcru, and Hanssens Scarenbecca #kriek. #beerporn (Taken with instagram)
The haul! Allagash Curieux, Ballast Point Sculpin, Firestone Walker Double Jack, Russian River Sanctification, Beatification, Consecration, baby Fernet, Lagunitas mason jar, and a Pliny T-shirt. Fuck yeah.
and that means in 2 weeks Founders KBS is back. Game on.
Also, if you’ve never put a scoop of ice cream in it, you’re missing out on the wonder of a bourbon-barrel-aged coffee-chocolate oatmeal imperial stout float. Blasphemy? Maybe. IDGAF.
Yeah, that’s two pitchers full of 2010 GI Bourbon County Stout, which we served with the dregs of the Heaven Hills barrels that they were aged in during beer school against Comet Cafe. Burnhearts does imperial stouts like a ballerrrr.
Beer flight ov doom, in Burnhearts natural lighting. JP Maracaibo Especial, De Glazen Special Eindejaar imperial saison, ST Oat, and Bell’s Hopslam. Delicious, and covers a huge range of flavors.
How I went from this to drinking Manhattans is beyond me though.
Last night’s Bell’s event turned out great and the Burnhearts shirts turned out awesome! Got some sweet Bell’s swag too. We went through a 1/4 barrel of Black Note in an hour and a cask of Hopslam in two. Crazy.
Alright nerds, help me decide what to drink first. From L to R:
Stillwater Chardonnay -Bal Aged Stateside Saison
Huisbrouwerij Sint Canarus Potteloereke (Belgian strong dark, definitely has quite a few years on it)
Bell’s Batch 10,000 (well actually, I’m saving it for Thursday)
New Glarus Imperial Weizen
Deschutes Black Butte Porter
Evil Twin Williamsburg Hipster Ale
Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast
Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast
Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel
Central Waters Fourteen Fourteen (holy shit)
Olvadle Farms The Auroch’s Horn (Belgian-style strong pale)
Vanberg & DeWulf Lambicx (damn I love gueuze)
Finished it! All drawn in Photoshop CS3. And it’s anatomically correct!
My favorite bar, even wayyy before I started working there.
Went to Discount Liquor for the first time. Yeah, I know. Impulse buy of the day: Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel. Probably shouldn’t have bought it, but now I’ve got rauch geek breakfast and beer hop breakfast in the back too. Nice.
Cantillon graffiti somewhere in Belgium. What a nerd. haha
