Duuuuuudes, ransacked broke the biggest beer story of beer week. Kupros (somehow) scored a keg of Pliny the Younger and became the scalpers of the beer world and tried to completely gouge people for it. Now they are banned from Russian River Beers for life! Swift justice.
I am so stoked about the event at Pangaea tonight (see list of beers below), starts at 6. My only qualm is how I am going to try all the beers I want on this list without getting completely trashed. That calls for willpower that I really don't have when confronted with so much delicious brew. I want quaff the Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek, the Jolly Pumpkin Maricaibo Especial, at least one of the Mikkeller collabos, the very delicious smoked beer from Norwegian brewery Haanbryggeriet, the classic fresh, hoppy brau Taras Boulba, fuckkkk. All of them, just about. And the keg of Younger might still be in effect. I will fortify myself with a sandwich from Gunther's first.
Or maybe a sandwich from Fat Face, because Bows is having an art opening tonight: Verge artist Ianna Frisby's embroidery pieces. Also, bathroom polaroids by Sarah Barkawi.
I might be at Bows a lot this weekend, cuz Hummel's hangover waffle brunch is on Sunday. Also on Sunday, Rob is doing a very smart thing at Pangaea and having a keg blowout of all his leftover stuff from Beer Week. Hopefully there are some discounts to be had? At least he won't charge you 45 bucks for a glass of Pliny the Younger!
