Jasmine (11:19 AM):  Not frat boyish like the International beer fest. that’s what I’d been afraid of

Joe (11:19 AM):  nope i didn’t see any decked out babes vomiting pizza Orgasmica into a garbage can

Jasmine (11:20 AM):  That’s something you can & will only see once in your life
Joe (11:20 AM):  hopefully
Joe (11:20 AM):  i wasn’t sure how good the food would be but it went well with the beer overall – liked the creole food the best

Jasmine (11:20 AM):  A little budge, but good

Joe (11:20 AM):  yeah…and the beer

Joe (11:20 AM):  that wasn’t budge.  all the stars were there
Jasmine (11:20 AM):  My favorite beer is still the two kinds of Valley beers we tried

Joe (11:21 AM):  the one they made for the event was just awesome

Jasmine (11:21 AM):  Decadence and the Celebrator’s 20th special

Joe (11:21 AM):  yeah decadance was a bit strong for me but i LOVED the celebrator 20th special

Jasmine (11:22 AM):  I didn’t love their new beer, but you did, right?

Joe (11:23 AM):  it was dark – made for valentines day – i liked it

Jasmine (11:23 AM):  Rejection? It was too bitter for me. Like rejection is, I guess!

Joe (11:24 AM):  hehe dark like the soul of the rejected – or something like that

Joe (11:24 AM):  um i just remembered la Folie from New belgium

Joe (11:24 AM):  i want it now! but alas i must wait

Joe (11:25 AM):  i mean lots of cherry – real sour but with a nice creamy taste up front

Joe (11:25 AM):  there was definitly apple flavor in there too. I want to get more into sour beers and this just pulls me in

Jasmine (11:26 AM):  Devil’s Canyon – the Scottish ale paired with the scottish ale cheese they made. LOVED it.

Joe (11:26 AM):  ya i really liked that cheese with the beer

Joe (11:26 AM):  and without :)

Jasmine (11:27 AM):  I didn’t know I liked Scottish ale so much. We had another one later and I really liked that too.

Joe (11:27 AM):  a new style to explore!

Joe (11:27 AM):  to the beer mobile
Jasmine (11:28 AM):  I did NOT like that peach ale, from the same people who make that blueberry one I also don’t like

    Hehe – Thanks Dave – she is great and her beer geek status just keeps going up. She brought back Brooklyn Lager for me from NYC – now come on does it get better then that!

    Thanks for the comment – you have a cool site yourself. I have to make it to LA one of these days – Father’s Office and FOII are calling.
