Beer Bums Meeting – March 2017

The Madness of March with several maddening beers and a lot of variety.  The Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero was my personal favorite, while the Illustrated Man was like biting into a tart blackberry.  All capped off with the Firestone Walker Bravo which is a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Brown Ale.  Excellent finish to the meeting.

Beer Bums Meeting – February 2017

The February theme was open to interpretation, but everyone seemed to stick to the Valentine’s love theme.  A great variety with the Hibiscus Saison a pleasant surprise.  It’s super pink! Nooner was a nice interpretation too.  A few bonus beers rounded out the meeting with the Pineapple Austin Eastciders and the Real Ale Black Quad.

Beer Bums Meeting – January 2017

Our meeting can run from 100 degrees and sunny to snow.  January was freezing, with no snow, but one of our coldest meetings nonetheless. We always kick off the year with our favorite beers of the previous year.  Mine was the Saint Arnold Art Car IPA, but all the offerings were great.  The Elysian Space Dust was a favorite from our Holiday Party and nice to try it again with a fresh palate.

Next Month, February - February themed beers??

Beer Bums Meeting – October 2016

October inspired beers leaves a lot to chance, but we ended up with another batch of great beers.  Three Oktoberfests, a Halloween-ish beer and a Berliner-Weisse.  Not a bad one in the group.
