Cheers to our sponsors, like...

  1. I just got back from GEBF: Lots of good brews there. My favorite was Trip I (the Trippel IPA) With a close second being the Pandemonium and Barrel O’ Bitch was darned good too. Definitely a good time. Knot Owl was gone when I tried to get it.

  2. Alex – we liked Trip I, but enjoyed Trip II even more. Laura Stoudt recommended the Woodruff Maibock and that was a surprising favorite too.

    What an amazing beerfest, I thought it was similar to winter beer fest, where every brewer brings unusual, wonderful beers – only it was all one brewery, all at one time. Dick Cantwell is truly gifted and we are lucky to have him here in Seattle. – Mrs. Beerblog
