    I wanted badly to try that, but sadly Sake is one of the things I must not drink. I can do lambic if I get a clear pour, but sake is through and through with the mold sensitivity. Boooo.

    legit poured more beer than I drank. A good time nonetheless... some really great cider and mead (and sake) tho...

    ;)

    EDIT: everything from Forager was pretty great both at Funk Factory and at the Fest

    The Forager guys were at Zwanze in Iowa last year and I was impressed and they didn't disappoint again last weekend...

    Forager is amazing, for their food and beer. I love stopping there omw to Decorah. I've even detoured there when going back home to the NW burbs of Chicago.

    Forager was for sure the high point of the fest for me. They were killing it.

    The low point was the guy in line with me waiting for Maman doing advanced analysis of line size vs. secondary value and declaring it was well worth his time over and over :rolleyes:
