Oh, What a Night!

We can’t thank the Kledis family enough – really for ALL of their hospitality, but also for putting on a great gathering last night. It was so much fun to join with people we met last year, and make a few new friends, during this major tasting. Everyone brought something great either to eat or to drink (or both), and I believe there were five cases of beer in total. We didn’t drink all of it, thank goodness, but we put a dent in the collection.

Here is the list that D came up with from his notes and I will back up with photographs.  They appear in no particular order, as we weren’t exactly careful about that:

  • Westvleteren 12
  • Southern Tier Gemini
  • Southern Tier Choklat
  • Voodoo Brewing Voodoo Love Child
  • New Glarus Belgian Red
  • New Glarus Raspberry Tart
  • New Glarus Copper Kettle Weiss
  • Mikkeller Black Stout
  • Sprecher Abbey Tripel
  • Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
  • Dogfish Head Palo Santo
  • Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine
  • Catawba Valley Whiskey River Stout
  • AleSmith Speedway Stout
  • AleSmith Yule Tide
  • Lost Abbey Lost and Found
  • Lagunitas Under Cover Shut Down Brown
  • Pisgah Cosmos
  • Pisgah Baptista 2006
  • Pisgah Baptista 2007
  • Pike Old Bawdy Barleywine
  • Fonteinen Oak Aged Kriek 2005
  • Pizza Port Old Viscosity
  • Pizza Port Santa’s Little Helper
  • Alaskan Barleywine 2007
  • Old Dominion Oak Aged Millenium Barleywine 2006
  • DeSchutes Abyss 2007
  • Saint Somewhere Saison Athene
  • Jolly Pumpkin Bier de Mars
  • Atlantic Brewing Company Cadillac Mt. Stout
  • Fantome Chocolate
  • Abbey de Saint Bon Chien 2005
  • Three Floyd’s Dark Lord
  • New Holland Dragon’s Milk
  • Moylans Hopsickle
  • Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock
  • Surly Furious
  • Lakefront Fuel Cafe
  • Brutal Deluxe Dark IPA

So, on the way out of town, we will stop off at Over Easy for brunch with the Raiford’s, Bruisin’ Ales for one last purchase (yes, we always think of something more, and that store is so awesome, it’s hard to pass up a visit!), and Barley’s for a final glass of Pisgah Valdez.
