SPBW 4th Annual Real Ale Festival

October 29th, 2007 · No Comments

This years Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood Real Ale Festival was a great success. Over 400 tickets were sold, with additional tickets being sold at the door at The Wharf Rat. With over 30 Cask beers and unlimited sampling, everybody left happy. I was one of the volunteers inside pouring beer so I didn’t get a chance to sample everything but here is my list

Du Claw Bad Moon Porter
Victory Hop Devil (This was one of the most popular inside) +++
Dogfish Head Chicory Stout
Oliver Mad Monk (One of my favorites had a new sweet taste) ++
Oliver Dark Mild
Victory Donneybrook Stout (Another favorite at the table)
Gales Prize Old Ale (This was just an amazing barley wine beer) ++++
Troegs Hop Back Amber +++
Brooklyn Bright Golding (7.5% another fruity tasting beer) ++
Gordon Biersch Schwarbier (4.3%)
Rock Bottom Oatmeal Dry Stout with Vanilla (Arlington)
Brewers Alley I.P.A (I left with a growler of this, 5-5.4%) +++
Clipper City Loosse Cannon (very hoppy)
Brewers Art Le Cannard
Franklin’s I.P.A.
Brewers Art Beacon Ale (mmmmmm) ++++
