Pics from Keegan Ales’ Super Kitty release party. It’s not often…

Pics from Keegan Ales’ Super Kitty release party. It’s not often a brewery does a 10 year vertical tasting of their once-a-year limited flagship brew, but today Tommy Keegan hosted one, featuring every Super Kitty from 2005 to today. It was very cool to taste the effects of aging and how the honey (from right outside the same doors) makes this beer different from year to year. The highlights for me were the original from 2005, which went down super smooth, and for others it was the 2007, which was so good, it was gone in the first half hour, leaving none for yours truly. Other highlights included a cask of 2013, the release of the new 2014, and the tasting of several vintage beers pictured above that had previously been decorating the shelves of the now-closed homebrew shop, like Billy (Carter) Beer and MASH beer based on the TV show. We were also fortunate(?) enough to taste bottle #6 from the first ever case of Hurricane Kitty from ‘05. While it didn’t hold up quite like its Super counterpart, it sure tasted like drinking a bit of Hudson Valley beer history. A hell of a party for a hell of a beer.

The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout. As perfect a beer as their name is ridiculous. Not available in NY, gotta trek to PA to get some. But worth it.
