Yep, I spent this beautiful day sweating my ass off in a biergarden, and then went on to sweating my ass off at a BBQ. So hot, much rehydration.
Also…this food cart is the tits.
Today’s Puckerfest was offering Block 15 and De Garde flights….so I got both. Too hard to make a choice between the two.
De Garde up front, Block 15 in the second row with 10 Barrel Apricot Crush as a palate cleanser. This is world class drinking for an afternoon of being completely worthless.
Off to BBQ!!!
Crooked Stave and De Garde take to honors for the hopped sour beers. Le Terroir took the bus home.
This was the best one…
Bubbly on draft?!!!!!
This is stuff from Monday, but my liver was mostly recovering for the past week so I obviously couldn’t finish posting everything. Sorry I’m not sorry.
First stop, wine tasting!
And now…. beer!
Drie Fonteinen Hommage: Better than any fruited Cantillon I’ve ever had. It’s still a little on the sweet side, but after some cellaring the funk is going to match the sweetness and then it will be perfection! A+
Hill Farmstead Flora: I think this is the best Hill Farmstead beer around! Tart, with a dry and vinous finish! A+
Hair of the Dog Matt: Dessert in a bottle. Sweet, sticky, with tons of apple and a bit of smoke. A+
Hill Farmstead Brother Soigne: hnnngh. A+
How many glasses can my friend’s girlfriend handle? Many.
De Garde Blackberry Bu: Best of the regular Bu by a mile! So jammy and tart, with huge blackberry notes. A+
Yeah……Campo tried Winter last time, so we had to open another season. HERFST!!!!!
