Bruery Tasting

As all of my friends know that I am a huge Bruery fanboy.  I have been collecting the Rue family offerings for almost two years now, ever since I had received a Bruery beer as an extra in one of my first ever beer trades.  I had recently received several of my huge Wants from a generous Beer Advocate user who had extra bottles to give up.  Those particular bottles were going to be come my 1000th Beer Advocate Review but as luck would have it, I jumped on it too quick and it came prematurely.  Regardless, in celebration of it anyways, I was putting my entire Bruery collection on the table for my Buffalo Tasting Group to enjoy.

Unfortunately, the tasting date fell onto a weekend when the Western New York would see its worst snowstorm of the winter and it held back many of the participants.     Regardless, my friends Tim, Tom and Chopko still showed up.  Well, when you have only 4 people to drink, it is hard to run the gambit of an entire collection and still drive home safely, so we took it easy for the most part.  Chopko broke the rules and brought his own beer too that were non-Bruery beer…bastard.

Overall, we had some tasty brews and some other beers that didn’t go well with cellaring.  The worst part about it was hauling all of the unopened bottles back into the basement, what a pain in the ass it was.
