Got together to enjoy some of our beers.
No real order here or connection. We just open things that need to be opened and rate them. Nice evening! The Chronology Old Ale was really good. It’s about what I expected. 6 Months, very hot, boozy, no barrel. 24, raisin, fig, way too cloying sweet and a ton of wood. 12/18 were pretty close …
John comes to VT twice a year to grab his Collected Works Beers. We had a few really great items on Thursday:
Kurt from Belgium in A Box sent us 5 boxes of beer. Heather and I pretty much split this haul evenly though it all goes to the same beer cellar. Lots of fantastic Lambic to age and enjoy over the coming decade:
Great Summer, lots of travel, home improvements and life events that ultimately restricted how much I could spend on beer. I further restricted the amount of money I spent on beer that wasn’t Hill Farmstead or Lambic. I think I only did 3 beer trades all Summer.
