Session one of the Belgian Beer Party, at Carlsbad Pizza Port, has already started and I hope to finish this post before the live posts start trickling in.  Beer gathering #2 had some real treats..

First was Surly Brewing Co Oktoberfest beer called Surly Fest Lager.

Followed shortly by Weyerbacher Riserva 2008.  Ale with Raspberry Puree added and aged in Oak Barrels.  Almost sounds like a smoothie and might need a filter, but no…

For those of you that have it, it needs more time in the bottle.   Though still yummy, it had no carbonation..zilch, nada, zero

Next was Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn Brewery.
