Extreme Beer Fest 08

The Beer Advocate Extreme Brewers Fest was held on a sunny, cold day in February. Due to some confusion on the start time we arrived one hour before the fest started. This turned out to be a great fortune since by the time the doors opened the line went down the street and around the corner.

Once inside we had to decide on what to try first. Surly brewing was spotted from across the room so we rushed over their to try their Darkness stout. It was a very smooth, malty, and extremely tasty beer. One of our favorites for the day. Nearby we saw our friend Steve at Three Floyds. He poured us some Dreadnaught IPA and told us Dark Lord stout wouldn't be available until later in the day. Unfortunately, we were busy sampeling other beers and got in line too late for the Dark Lord.

Most of the fest was spent wandering between brewers and trying various beers we can not normally purchase. There were quite a few beers on cask available, which we took full advantage of, plus beers we tried beers made with peanuts, plums, raspberrys and even chili peppers. Neither of us found a beer we didn't like.

Besides the beer, we ran into several friends from the North Shore Brewers and met a couple of people we only saw once at other events. We were also lucky enough to speak with several brewers about their beers and brewing experience. Overall it was a terrific time that went by way too fast.
