There has been a beer-theme at the local Central Market. Tastings. Brewing demonstrations. Food pairings. Lectures by brewers and experts...
All I cared about was the 25% discount on beer sales over $50! I took an opportunity to stock up. While there were many many choices (esp singles) I made my main focus England.
Delirium Tremens 750ml (finally get to try!)
Gulden Draak 750ml
Then I got two each of all the following:
Bad King John 500ml "A Very English Black ale"
St Petes' Old Style Porter 550ml
These 550ml Samuel Smiths:
Tadcaster Organic Best Ale
Old Brewery Pale Ale
Not bad for under $75. Doesn't seem like much but it's taking up a good part of my bottom shelf in the fridge. Will have to work on that.
Drinking a Tadcaster right now. Surprisingly it's fairly bitter, but with malty-sweet caramel tones.
And I totally spaced off the Great Divide Tripel. My punishment is to pay full price...
