    • I should have taken pictures of all the DB construction, oh well guess I have to go back. The beer was a Gold Leaf Lager and it was excellent as was the BBQ. Quite a few hikers at Rockfish gap and Reid's gap. Beautiful day for a drive on the parkway.

      Excellent, though a buddy does a homebrew that is almost identical.

    • Much to my disappointment, there were very few dark beers at the fest yesterday. It's probably a good thing as they are more filling which means less sampling. A local brewer, Underbite, had a great porter.

      There was a lot of sour beer, all of which I didn't like. I tried key lime (yuck) and some others I can't remember. Tried a few pumpkin, including one I've had before and thought was decent (DB Pumpkin Hunter) but none of them impressed me.

      I continue to develop a taste for IPA.

      One of my favorite beers was Lunatic Blonde, a Belgian pale ale, by Wicked Weed in Asheville. As well as loving the name, it was pretty tasty.

    • Got introduced you Neuse River brewery recently and wound up putting two on tap at the restaurant. The La Fluer Saison and a Triple Rye Trappist style that is amazing. It really is one of the worst parts of my job. Beer is pushed on me weekly to taste.
