In a undisclosed area, at an undisclosed time, the illustrious craft beer drinkers of Orange County had a meeting of the 60 different craft brews.
There was Dark Lord, and Either, and Or,
Jamaican Speedway Stout, head to head in a Modern Times bout.
There was Stygian Descent hanging on The Abyss,
Firestone and family, shit, now I gotta piss…
For those of you who don’t know, a “beer-share” is when a group of craft beer enthusiasts come together, and share their most treasured brews with one another. It truly is a magnificent display of community and humanity. They share food, share ideas, share stories, and most importantly share beer.
At this secret event, they kept the members at a minimum, and their presents flowing in steadily with 90+ beers compared 25 people, There was a table with a vintage collection containing a 2001, 2006, 2009, and 2015 Sierra Nevada Big Foot.
Here are some other pictures from the night:
But here were my 2 favorites of the night:
An American wild ale, weighing in at 8,00% ABV, it hits you with an herbal aroma, while the flavor is citric and fruity: de Garde Brewing’s The Lucy
A saison, or farmhouse ale, this delicious buddy comes in weighing 11.12% ABV. With an aroma of fruits and grapes, the flavor goes down smoothly as it is light bodied by boosted with tons of peach and apricot flavors: The Ale Apothecary’s El Cuatro
All in all, I had a great time. And if you have the chance to be invited to the next special event, I suggest you take it, because it might be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
