Well, here it is Lent and time to give up all the good stuff. (Ha! Not really, we’re good Protestants. We don’t do that whole Lent thing.) We do, however, do photos and we have a bunch from the first Carnevale di Lost Abbey held last Saturday in conjunction with the release of Lost Abbey […]

Our seven judges have 18 barrels to taste. Then they have to blend and taste again. Wow. That’s a lot of sour beer to drink.
Andrew came all the way from Settle to try the beers. I think he likes them.
The sit down wit the team. From upper right — Tomme, Julian, Sage, Damien and Bo. Adam and Tim will join them shortly.
The glasses they will be using — 18 for each of them
Blending Beer Day! Tomme and Bo tapped 18 of the (Isa)Belle Proximus barrels today for the tasting and blending. The beer is a sour beer made by Sam (Dogfish Head), Robb (Allagash), Adam (Avery), Vinnie (Russian River) and Tomme (Lost Abbey) and then aged for 14 months in barrels (and cultures) sent by each brewer.
It’s raining today, but not enough to stop this intrepid group from dropping by to warm there bones with a few good beers

Everybody gets their ID checked to prevent beer hoarding
The line for registering your beers. You say what you want, Tomme types it into the computer, and then you go off and have a pint or two. Your beer will be waiting for you on your way out.

The Release of Gift of the Magi
“Black Friday” is the Friday after Thanksgiving — supposedly the busiest shopping day of the holiday season. (Myth. The busiest day is always the last Sunday before Christmas.) Naturally, Beer Molly and my daughters headed out at 3:30am to help prop up the economy by spending every dime I’ve ever earned. This leaves me and […]
