Dec. Club Meeting


The club meeting this month took a road trip and was held in the Barnhart's home.  The focus of the meeting was to sample as many barleywines as could be found availlable in the  area.  Due to the Indiana liquor laws, "purchased" beers can not be taken into a restaurant/brewpub that produces its own beer.
12 of us gathered to partake in the event, including Susie Barnhart, who usually considers this group to be too geeky to spend much time with.  10 barleywines were also in attendance as well as 3 other high gravity brews for us to partake in.
If we add up all the ABVs, it comes out to 144.8%, or an average of 11.1% per beer.  It was a good thing that we had the numbers to tackle this collection.  The actual ABV range was 8.5% at the low end to 18% at the top.
The list of beers went as follows;
Mikkeler Devine Rebel at 12%
Tin Man's Groaning Ale 13.2% (Cary's homebrew "birthing ale")
Thomas Hardy 2008 11.7%
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot 2009 9.1%
John Barleycorn 2009 11.2%
John Barleycorn 2008 9.1%
Brooklyn Monster Ale 10.1%
Avery Hog Heaven 9.2%
Boulder Killer Penguin 2009 10%
Shipyard Pugsley's Signature Series 2008 8.5%
Arcadia Cereal Killer 2008 9%
Whew! 

Stella Artois

 






Found these two new Stella Artois tv commercials to be particularly funny. Bud Light has always had funny commercials, which I always found a bit ironic since their beer sucks so badly.

Maybe Stella can un-seat Bud Light and be the new king of funny commercials?

Having good beer would certainly help.
