Back From Dark Lord Day

We made it back, and it was a hell of a time. Forcast was for rain, so we thought, "Hey, maybe a lot of people won't show up..." Man were we wrong! We got to Three Floyds around 10:15AM, and found two lines that had to hold well over 5000 people.
So rather than waiting in line, we decided to walk to the front and see what else was going on. We found a guest beer trailer which held Dogfish, Surly, Founders, and many other great breweries.
From the list, were were able to try four new beers. Tea Bagged Furious, Sticky Stout, Kentucky Breakfast Stout, and HeadHunter.
Then we got in line, and a few hours later, we ended up with our Cases of Dark Lord. 2009 and 2010 were available for purchase, so both were acquired. As they day went on, we met up with from friends, and were able to try even more beers. To go along with an Oak Aged Dark Lord, and a group of Three Floyds Beers:

Alpha Klaus
Robert the Bruce
Samurai Gazebo
Alpha King
This guy and some friends were nice enough to share beers that they were able to bring with them. This is where things got a little dicey trying to remember everything, but there was an Enigma, Barrel Aged Yeti,
a 2006 Barley Wine, something hand carried from Belgium, and a growler of Exit 16. Possibly a few more, but I can't remember everything.

Ended up being a pretty amazing weekend, and we were able to get a few nice bottles back home. We'll break those out when we see all of you! See you Thursday!

Beer Thursdays goes to the MLB Season Opener!

Four of the Beer Thursday guys went to the MLB Season Opener between the Phillies and the Nationals on April 5th. Needless to say, we ended up with the most eclectic grouping of beers that parking lot had ever seen. While this list doesn't actually qualify as a Beer Thursday list, it was still pretty good.

DFH Raison D'etre
Founders Centennial IPA
Moylans Hopsickle
DFH Liquor De Malt
Russian River Damnation
Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye
Troegs Nugget Nectar
Boulder Mojo Risin'
DFH 90 Minute
2007 Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
Stone Ruination
DFH Squall IPA

Still hitting that 12 average boys!

When does 3 = 13? When you're drinking at Beer Thursdays #3!

Week three is in the books. Maybe not as epic as last week, but 13 bottles got opened up. Unofficial theme of the night became Beligums. Check out the list.

The Bruery Saison Rue
Saison Dupont
Gulden Drakk

Still a pretty amazing night if you ask me. I think we are going to have to average 12, just for appearance sake. Seems to be working for the last three weeks. Next BT will be on April 29th. Any Ideas for a theme?
