MBR Meet-Up at the Old Fashioned - Thank You!!!

We had over a dozen people at The Old Fashioned last night for a few beers and to chat. Thanks so much for everyone who came out. A good time was had by all. I wish I had remembered to bring the camera.

Thanks especially to Jennifer at The Old Fashioned for hosting us. Also, Dan and Deb Carey and New Glarus Brewing Company for taking the time to come by and talking to us and bringing the Imperial Saison, Dancing Man Wheat and Naked. The Imperial Saison is amazing, and the Dancing Man Wheat is again fantastic. Finally, thanks to New Belgium for providing samplers of the Mothership Wit, 1554 and Fat Tire, we enjoyed them immensely.

We will definitely be doing more of these. Some suggestions were made for brewery trips and for cook-outs, so we'll try to be creative about how we do them.

Thanks again, it was great meeting everyone and getting the chance to hang out.

  1. Thanks to you too Jeff! Jen and I had a fantastic time. It was great to meet some fellow beer enthusiasts and the samples New Glarus provided were amazing. I now know why they're so highly regarded in this beer loving state. Although New Belgium has been my favorite for a long time now, I will definitely be making room in my heart for New Glarus as well. Looking forward to the next time.

    Regards,
    Gage

  2. It was a great time - double thanks to the Old Fashioned! The NG imp saison was fabulous (looking forward to drinking a bunch of this over the summer).
    cheers!

  3. Thanks so much to Jeff, Jennifer, the Carey's and anyone else involved. Had a great time last night getting a sneak peak at a couple fantastic beers and meeting a few new area beer lovers. Looking forward to more events like this in the future!

  4. It's hard to beat that much fun for a weeknight! Thanks for arranging everything!

    By the way, I have a completely unrelated question: since I missed the Oscura tasting at Star last week, I have no idea where it's going to be on tap. Would you happen to have any scuttlebutt on that?

    Thanks again!

  5. Hey, Kathy -

    Not sure where Oscura will be tapped yet. Unlike say, Thermo Refur, Oscura will be available through the summer and into the fall, so kegs aren't purchased on a pre-order basis. As a result, I don't get a list of tap accounts right away. I would guess that The Malt House, Brasserie V, the Barriques on West Wash, Monroe & Fitchburg and maybe Old Fashioned would be good place to look in a few weeks.

    I'll try and keep you posted when I get more information

    p.s. FWIW, I just had my first Oscura of this year last night (and, to be fair, my second, third and fourth as well...) and it was freakin' delicious.
