Whale Meets Wooden Robot - Greenville Cheers!

If you made it over to The Whale today for the Wooden Robot Brewery event, featuring four of their most popular brews, you could have joined me in welcoming Mikey Foster, Sales Rep, to the beer-appreciating GVL community and tasted some very special brewery-only beers that he conveniently brought along: Aww Fudge, a fudge stout was just velvet on the palate and no hint of the 12.8% Abv. A "Bring me my slippers, I'll be here awhile" type of sipper.

Also a Saison, Alternating Currents (guess the fruit) that was so fresh and fruity that I could have it morning, noon and night. And with an ABV of 4%, why not? Yummers.

Despite the occasional power outage, it was an evening of treats and we were told that starting next week, we will see a lot more Wooden Robot kegs available!
Love good news, don't you?

Pabst Ain't Craft

Apparently someone at Pabst could use a refresher course on the meaning of “craft” when applied to beer.
I embrace their increased use of hops, but...
Read and decide for yourself.

Biggest Little Fest Kicks Off 2020

Whoa, 2020 is getting off to a fast start, events are quickly lining up on my calendar. I already mentioned the Quest Brewing Company Chili contest this weekend; looking a little further into the month, what should appear but the first major GVL beer festival of the year, Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria (Greenville)'s Biggest Little Festival 2020, January 19, which will be here before you know it. This is an especially favorite fest for Belgian beer lovers cause The Trappe Door will be filled with an amazing array of popular Belgian offerings. Not to be missed, get downstairs early, the place gets packed quickly.

Some pix below from last year to remind you of how much fun can be had:
