I attended / co-hosted a beer tasting Friday night with a bunch of people from work. We had quite a selection of sour/ wild yeast beers from Belgium and Russian River (CA). I brought a couple different bottles from my favorite new/small brewery in CA, called Almanac, as well as a couple (Adam and Fred) from Hair of the Dog in Portland, OR. A few people thought Adam was the best beer of the night. It's fantastic stuff.
I had my first taste of Westvleteren
beer at this tasting -- all three kinds, actually -- and they all did not disappoint. My favorite was the 8, and was possibly my favorite of the night.
