Working lunch at Eddie’s Roadhouse in Warwick.
Sierra Nevada Beer Camp tap takeover going on right now at Bacchus at New Paltz. Good beer, good times and good beer reps from several of the breweries. Definitely a once in a lifetime type of event.

Local craft beer on tap and the World Cup at The Castle? Yes, family fun park The Castle in Chester has a little pub with 6 craft beers on tap, including 2 from neighbors Rushing Duck (I’m enjoying what I believe is a Baby Elephant- they only knew it was an IPA), A Keegan Ales Mother’s Milk and a Newburgh Brown. Kudos Castle!
Goose Island Proprietor’s Bourbon County Stout. Traded 4 Amstel Radlers for it. Best…Trade…Ever. Thanks Shane! Haha. If you’re not familiar, this is like getting the Ark of the Covenant in exchange for a happy meal toy. Awesome awesome beer.

Belgium. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer Blue Stripe 2013. A perfect beer. I’d never seen it in 12 oz. bottles before until I happened upon it in Virginia last week. Totally lives up to its perfect 100 rating on RateBeer and 96 on Beer Advocate. Dark, cherry notes, no sign of the 11% abv. Dare I say even better than St. Bernadus 12? Yes, yes I do. Also, better than the US Soccer Team. Sorry.
What’s special about this beer? It’s a New Belgium Fat Tire on tap. Buffalo Wild Wings in Virginia. Delicious. First time on draught for me.
