Friday's Live Report
The crowds are picking up at the PIB.
Picks so far: Double Mountain Devil's Kriek, Mikkeller Bourbon Black Hole and Chipotle Porter, 21st Amendment Double Trouble IIPA, Flyers Kentucky Uberwine.
The vibe is great. Lots of great beers I didn't mention.
Seeing Jeff's list of grievances towards the PIB made me realize I should give you some more helpful info about the fest:
- Bring your own drinking water. The servers will rinse your glass if you want, but there's no free drinking water ($1/bottle).
- The Cantillon Kriek is 6 tickets, not 3.
- These beers are in the program, but not at the fest: Rogue Chatoe OREgasmic, Rogue John John Juniper, Deschutes Black Butte XXII, Firestone Walker Double Jack, Dieu du Ciel Rigor Mortis Abt, Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast Bacon, Haandbryggeriet Odin's Tipple.
- Beers to avoid: Epic Mayhem (OK, but not 4-ticket good), Trois Mousquetaires Imperial Weizen (nasty), Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest (this is not a fresh-hop beer).
Anyway, the weather is beautiful, have a great time!
