Arooga's were so good, I tried a bite of my husbands and it brought a tear to my eye it was so good. I had to go and get my own!... and now I would like another, right now!
Okay, okay, I got side tracked by the delicious food. There was also a celebrity guest! We were psyched to meet Chef Duffy from one of our favorite shows, Bar Rescue.
...and of course, beer!!
With close to 60 breweries serving up over 200 types of beer, it was impossible for me to try them all, but I gave it my best shot!
Some of the beers I really enjoyed and would definitely purchase in the future were:
Harpoon Take 5 - Harpoon's newest session IPA is a great balanced, very drinkable IPA. I loved that it packed a lot of flavor while maintaining a low ABV of only 4.3%.
Stone Stochasticity Project: HiFi & LoFi Mixtape - A special edition beer from Stone brewing which is a blend of fresh beer and barrel aged beer. This American Strong Ale had a unique taste that I really enjoyed.
Davidson Brothers Irish Extra Stout - A really rich, tasty stout with hints of chocolate and coffee - yum!
Guiness Nitro IPA - Guiness, who invented nitrogenated stout has moved into the IPA game, and I like it. A smooth and creamy, not so bitter IPA. I wouldn't necessarily choose it if I was in the mood for an IPA, but it was a very drinkable beer.
We had an awesome time as always! Can't wait for next year!!
