    I suppose that it doesn't include food?
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Sorry, but food is not in the budget - only beer.

    Went down there yesterday and had a blast. Lots of good beers to try.. and some terrible ones. My 3 favorites in no order...

    Pliny the Elder (Russian River Brewing)
    Wee Heavy (AleSmith)
    Wit (St Bernardus)

    The Worst...
    Anything by Back Street Brewing
    Anything by Papago Brewing

    EDIT: I tried avoiding beers that I've previously had so these weren't the three best beers there, just the three best that I tried.

    Pics were requested....so here ya go...

    The folks we were there with... Waiting for them to open our session.


    Friggin' hot day - the crowd gathering under one of the tents.


    hockeychick got some coasters for her collection


    hockeychick and I


    They were making some beer battered onion rings. The prepping: does NOT look appetizing! Yet I tried a sample anyway - they were damn good!


    With the Beer Cheese guy. Some gooooood stuff - hope they can start selling it soon!

    Pliny the Elder is a spectacular beer, but the Younger is best of all.

    I was down at AleSmith on Saturday and brought back a growler of the Speedway Stout. That stuff is amazing. An their Wee Heavy is really nice too. I've had it before but samples were 50 cents so I couldn't pass it up.

    Thanks for sharing our pics KingsFanKat! I think my favorites were Duvel and one from Ballast Brewing but I can't remember the name. One too many tastes I guess.

    Tip for next time: if you're a girl, make sure you go to the breweries with older men serving you. They conveniently forget to tear of your taste stub. The guy serving the 12th anniversary Stone started off the day wonderfully by giving me a free sample. NICE!

    henry and I had the Speedway Stout on Saturday. a mighty fine stout, which is similar to Stone's 12th Anni., which I neglected to bring with me to his house.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Nice. We did the Stone brewery tour right before the beer tasting. I grabbed a growler of their Cali-Belgique IPA, a mighty fine beer.

    If any of you watch the show Three Sheets on Mojo-HD you will remember Logan "The Beer Hunter" from the Belgium show. Dude was there so I got a picture with him. He was drunk and kept calling the show "Three Sheeps." Good times.

    Oh definitely ! I'd put it up there with The Lost Abbey's "Serpent Stout" and both would make my top 5 for the American Double Stout style. My growler of the Speedway is 64 ounces, so I have a few friends stopping by tonight to help me work on that bad boy.

    I love the Stone 12th and have a case of it sitting in the fridge. Well, at this rate I've got about 8 or so left, but in any case....
