Our tasting group has seen a set-back in numbers. Glad the 3 of us are still keeping this thing going!
We should talk about that Stone Porter. That’s the original 2002 batch! Clark had that one stashed away and it was delicious!
Exactly 2 years later, we’re back with another version of this. This time, I had stockpiled 22 magnums to open. We only got through 7 of these but we did have a lot more beer overall. It was 5 of us instead of 12 which is a bummer but we did it over 2 days instead of 1 so it was a blast. I just have a lot more large format bottles available for next year, I guess?
Here are some photos:
I was in Belgium last in 2015. I was supposed to go in 2016 but I missed my flight by about 2-3 minutes. Sigh. Heather and I received our voucher and re-booked for after the house was done and did a 5 day trip to Belgium to hit our favorite spots. The only place we didn’t make was to Westvleteran. She had never been and it’s one of those bucket-list stops for beer geeks despite the beer itself not being the #1 beer in the world.
I took a lot of photos with the SLR and here are my favorite beer photos I wanted to share. I need to schedule a lot of reviews for you all but I’ve been slacking off. You’ll have to just enjoy the photos:
This is everything we took to Belgium to share / trade!
