Had an annual beer share yesterday, and oof, it was amazing. My fave was probably the Anchorage Deal With The Devil Double Oaked Vanilla Bean (Barleywine aged for 7 months in Woodford Reserve double oaked barrels & 6 months in Elijah Craig barrels. Finished on Madagascar Vanilla Beans), which went rather quickly.

Be on the lookout for Straight Fyre by Blackstack, should be officially released this week. Double dry hopped double IPA, it was very good.

Tons of Forager, and even this year’s Toppling Goliath Assassin was cracked.

Your video of the bottles… maybe on fb… was amaze. As a parent… maybe those days of long, steady sampling might be behind me. I was impressed though! One of these days I’ll figure out how to try some of the rare TG or Forager beers, had a BA World Wide Stout this weekend 18.4% ABV– it was indeed a solid.

It was on FB, and yeah, this particular annual share is always sick. This was the first one we have had in 2 yrs, obvious reasons. I estimate about 70-80 people rolled through, during the day, etc. This is a share where all of us earmark bottles throughout the year, or go deep into our cellars, to save for this event. I checked in about 25 beers, 2oz/per sample or so, over 12 hours? Something like that.

The BA World Wide is definitely a solid beer, but also at that ABV, gotta watch your pacing.
