Who else went to the Microwbrew Fest? Find any new favorites?
We started with Blind Tiger's Java Porter, which was pretty tasty... one of the better coffee beers I've tried... and we stuck with stouts and porters throughout (once you go black...).
We tried several that didn't really stick out of the crowd (Hey, look, here's a stout with chocolate, coffee, and caramel notes!), but the one that did was River City Brewing's 4 Horsemen Imperial Stout... aged in Wild Turkey barrels with cherries. Anyone know if it's available outside of their restaurant? It was pretty damn good.
I wanted to give Boulevard's grape beer a try, but figured I wouldn't get much out of it after all the stouts. I was disappointed with ODell's lack of offerings, but there was plenty of other good beer. Good times.
