Decent flight. They did 6 per flight. I did two IPAs, a barrel aged sour, a dark saison, the same saison barrel aged, and a porter. I'll post more about Asheville beer tonight.

That does look like a hell of a trip! Well done.

 

I just got back from a cabin/hiking trip with the boys were we took down a ton of beer. Will post the kill shot once my buddy sends it to me.

Slowly working through some of the beer I brought back from Asheville. I've had two from Burial Beer Co. so far. Surf Wax (west coast IPA, link) and The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb (100% Brett IPA w/ pineapple, link). Both were fantastic, I regret not buying more.

I've also got two batches of homebrew fermenting right now. One will be ready to keg this weekend, probably. It's a Smash Ale with German Pale Ale malt and Amarillo hops. I tasted it last weekend and it was quite good. I've also got an English Mild Ale that I brewed with friends last weekend that will be ready to bottle in 2 or 3 weeks. I fear that it fermented too hot for a few hours, hopefully that didn't screw up the batch completely.

Drank at Platform tonight because Tomlin likes to groove fastballs over the middle, so left the jake early.
