Once a year necksbeards from near and far huskily flock to Anaheim to enjoy 1oz pours in the out of doors to get a taste of what living in the midwest feels like.
The award for shittiest beer of the day goes to this train wreck. Chocolate vanilla Gose with mint Oreos. 2oz was way too much. It’s like eating cookie crisp as a kid home on a sick day then throwing it up while Mr Face stares in Nick Jr based arbitration.
Kinda disappointing to see beers over 24 hours old at the event, if they could have brought a sloshing full brite tank over on a flatbed that would have been far better.
The cucumber cask trade winds was actually phenomenal. I was being a judgmental prick in line gurgling out quips and then it was refreshing as fuck. Black Tuesday on nitro was pointless as fuck, especially in a one ounce pour, such meniscus mouthfeel.
Best in show. Hands down.
The best beers of the event were brought by Bottlelogic, trust me I was surprised as well. But one of them was an Arizona Wilderness Collabo so I guess that isn’t too shocking.
I heard a lot about 7 barrel 10 barrel and 15 barrel systems, municipal laws, packaging regulations and market saturation. Ddb picked up enough industry buzzwords to be a philistine for at least another 6 months.
All in all, a pretty fun time, even if Melange 12 was complete wet apple cider spiced garbage. Stone even brought their reduced gluten delicious ipa for the kids with inhalers. Someone stole my taster glass while I was in the bathroom but the joke is on them, I have HPV.
That’s how you get HPV right, drinking from glasses people put on their buttholes? SUCCESSFUL EVENT.
