American Craft Beer Week 2010

Well, I must say that I got the 2010 American Craft Beer Week off to a good start yesterday at Vine & Barley. The event? A Terrapin Special Release Party which featured their classic Rye Pale Ale on draft all day at a sweet special of $2.95 a pint. At 6pm SHARP two kegs were tapped to much fanfare and anticipation:
  • French Oak Aged Wake and Bake
  • Monk's Revenge Belgian-style IPA

I've had their original Wake & Bake Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout many times, but never their French Oak aged variation. I must say that she was lusciously delicious. It's going to be hard going back to the original Wake & Bake...but somehow I think I can manage. I had a few sips of the Monk's Revenge on draft and it was tasty, albeit very similar to the bottles of which I have supped quite a few lately.

More details will be forthcoming in my BEERflection write-up, but suffice to say, a grand way to kick off American Craft Beer Week. With a Rogue tasting at Hurricanes here in Vero this Wednesday, the week continues to look mighty fine.

Cheers! And see you there!
