As always mixologist extraordinaire Shawn, set us up with a cheese plate pairing and floor show. Shawn took my dare seriously and sabered a corked bottle of Les Trois Mousquetaires weizenbock open with a kitchen knife! No spillage; I wonder if he found the cork yet? As always there are no photos. This is not for confidentiality, it is because I always forget to snap off a few shots.
This nights line up was a great selection of winter warmers: Samuel Smith Winter Welcome, Ninkasi Sleighr, Les Trois Mousquetaires weizenbock, Hopworks Abominable Winter Ale and Elysian Winter Bi-Frost.
Needless to say everyone had a great time and are looking forward to the next topic: Imperial Stouts. Many had fun filling out their 33 Beers tasting books.
Lineup for the Imperial Stout school:
-Eel River Raven's Eye
-Laguinatas Cappuccino Stout
-Jolly Pumpkin Dark Down Stout
-Great Divide Yeti Oak Aged Imperial stout (must find a second bottle)
-Homebrew from John at Basement Breweries. I might bring my own bottle hopped imperial treacle stout
-Mikkeller Beer Geek Weasel Highland Park. Yes this is not a typo, but only a small sample.
