Here’s a link to the 2015 Edition of this great tasting.
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:
More photos are here.
Chris and Michael came over to talk RateBeer, InBev and enjoy some beer!
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!
Two Ratebeerians were passing through my area on their way home from Hill Farmstead. I got to open some beers they haven’t been able to try. It was a nice evening!
2003 Inspiration Ice Cider, amazing still too cloying to enjoy more than this much. Works of Love Sante is perfection, 2013 Port Damon, going very strong. I even wrote Shaun a letter to let him know and ask him to continue brewing such a great beer. Elaborative 3. Too sweet for me but delicious. We had Allagash Uncommon Crow (amazing) and 2011 Gueuze Tilquin (perfect).
It was a nice evening.
We had some great beers!
Got home later and had these:
Overall nice weekend!
