What did your Father drink??

Friday, July, 15th, 5:30-7:00pm
So what did your father drink before there was light?? Or was it what ever came in a 30pk for less than a 20 dollar bill?? Will see what we can find. Suggestions are always welcome.
July is Sommerfest, the club's annual picnic. Good food, good beer, good music.
Results of Last Tasting
Summer Brews

Don't know what to think? Only 10 folks are interested in Summer Brews???. That's not what we heard when the tasting was Doppel Bock's & Dunkels or Stouts & Porters. Anyway 10 folks enjoyed the evening and three new beers along with two very nice snack trays, one veggie and one meat & cheese.
Interesting, all 5 beers had an average score of 4.00 or better. Paulaner and Tucher Brau tied for last with a score of 4.00. Second place was also a tie between Schneider Wiesse, an amber wheat beer and Schloss Eggenberge's Lemon Radler, with an average score of 4.11. Stiegl's Grapefruit Radler took first place with a 4.33. Note that a citrus Radler that we ordered and hoped to have for this tasting is still sitting in a warehouse somewhere.


Some of the comments received:
"Citris ones were very good. Loved the Tucher Brau"
"Really liked the wheat beers, a good change from the dark beers."
"All very good even if a bit bitter. I still would drink them!!"
"Wonderful tasting'"
"Very Good Flight"
