It was an amazing sight. It was awesome to see about 30 or 40 beer nerds descend on 33 Wine Shop and Tasting Bar last Friday night, kill a cask in about an hour and a half and then move on to their next beer adventure. At one point while pouring a Two Hearted, Jake, the owner of 33, looked at me and said, “You know, this is all your fault!” I can’t say I wasn’t a little proud.
As for the beer itself, my girlfriend and some people in the forum picked up a metallic taste and a bit of oxidation in the first few beers. I’m lucky to say my palate didn’t pick this up, but I will say that as the night progressed the beer got better. I don’t know if that’s because I had 3 or 4 beers or if the beer actually did get better, but it was pretty fulfilling. It was very cool to see everyone show up and have a great time.
Thanks again to Dylan, Jake and Mike at 33 for putting this on. Hopefully this becomes a more regular thing.
