The Day Before Beer for Beasts

This coming weekend, my wife and I are heading to NYC to attend a brewfest called Beer for Beasts. Last year was the first year they held it and after reading about it I knew we had to go. Basically, Sixpoint brews 40+ different one off beers on their little pilot system and makes them available for this fest. All proceeds from it benefit The Humane Society of NYC, hence the name. We'll be attending the evening session if anyone reads this and is going as well.

If you're curious, the entire beer list can be found here. Tons and tons of variety with some pretty weird stuff like one made with pepper and mushrooms and another named Pinky In the Brain made with peppercorns, ginger and hibiscus flowers. I'm looking forward to, predictably enough, some of the stouts. There's a chocolate, coffee, cinnamon stout, a chocolate and chili stout, and even a lobster shell stout named Rock Lobster. So, yeah, I'm excited.

Look for a real writeup next week or so.
