Beer Bums Meeting – January 2016

For January we always take a look back at our favorite beers of the previous year.  It can be a beer that surprised us the most or one we kept coming back to buy again and again.  Either way there was something to each beer that made it a highlight of the year.  The bonus beer of the month was a 3-4 year old La Bestia Aimable from Ranger Creek.  Always a treat.







Next Month, February – Pinthouse Pizza South Lamar!

Beer Bums Meeting – December 2015 - Beer Bums Christmas Spectacular

The Bums Annual Holiday party!  Once again great beers, great food and great people.  A long list of excellent beers and then some.  I left early so missed out on a few big ones, but as you can see below I didn’t miss much.  There were a lot of big beers and variety this year and the (512) Brewing Wild Bear was a treat for me.  The Indra Kunindra and 24 Carrot Golden Ale taking the titles for most unique.











Next Month, January – Best of 2015
