    Drank some lambic this weekend to celebrate the big 4-0. Didn't slay any whales, but went for some work horses instead.

    Checked back on the 03/14/15 vintage of 3F OG, since it wasn't my favorite last time I drank it (but I do want to like it, since it was bottled on (the best) pi day). Still not my favorite. Not much carbonation. It's tart but not as funky as I'd like, and the result is a beer that's not as rounded or vibrant as most other 3F OG I have.

    The Cantillon Kriek was it's usual, dependable, delightful self.

    The VAT 110 was also really enjoyable, with more fruity esters than the HF ale that preceded it. I really like that discovery box!

    PS. What looks like a severed finger garnish in the VAT glass is just a balloon in the background. I swear. Don't call the cops.

    I came across this a few days ago, but there were 5 tickets for every session. The problem is when you try to book it asks for an email address that apparently must match a list they provided as allowed to buy. I assume it is for special guests they want to guarantee tickets to.

    SeaWatchman any updates on when BfNA tickets will go on sale this year? Would love to make it to that event one year and maybe this is finally the year.

    Digita7693 aren't you heavily involved in this as well?

    That's a question for Digita7693 as he's part of the crew that plans it. .Info just supports it :)

    We will send out a teaser in the next few weeks with some information for this year.

    SeaWatchman is correct:)
    LI holds the amazing raffle for us and came up w the wildly popular wall of lambic, as well as sponsoring the Oysters and Gueuze event.

    cavemanlawyer, teddyarrowhead, LoPo87, Jessica and myself run the event.

    We will post updates on brewsfornewavenues.org, Instagram, FB and here soon. Thanks a ton for the support!

    If you have an questions feel free to contact me.
