Beer week continues on. The gala was a rambunctious and drunk good time (and a bit annoying – but that is for a different time). There was of course a bunch of stand out beers (Sour Stout from Anderson Valley, Two weeks notice from Moonlight, and the beers from a new brewery in Belmont – Cherry Voodoo) .
I have been lucky to get to go to two fine tastings at Pi bar and even have a relaxing time sharing some beers with locals at the Englander. Last night was an amazing beer dinner. Beer week just plain rocks. Below are some events that hit our radar and we will try to go to – and a few we can’t go to but sound amazing. Just a word of caution – events are getting crowded and are selling out, so if you are into something, buy those tickets or get there early. And the joke is – this list doesn’t even really scratch the surface. Go here for all the details on all of the events.
