I've heard that there will be no keg this time around but the event will otherwise be the same. Buying a glass of the new 09 Barleywine will get you tasters of the 06, 07 and 08 for free. Also worth noting is that this will be held at Waldo Pizza, an awesome place to grab a beer and order a pizza. The venue is relatively small though so if you plan on coming for the tasting I'd suggest getting there early, having a pizza and getting warmed up ahead of time.
I plan on driving straight to Waldo Pizza after work next wednesday and ordering a big pizza and a glass of Hitachino White Ale if it's still on tap. I'm really looking forward to having the Barleywine again though. I've had it once before at a Schlafly dinner in March, it was paired with tempura battered short ribs... it was beyond amazing. Oh, and that was the 2008 vintage which was chocolaty and sweet like caramel.
Don't miss this event:
