Beer Tasting or Drinking contest?

Our big shooting/eating/guy's weekend was a few weeks ago.  I know, I haven't posted anything.  I'm am ashamed.  Each night the guns are put away and the food and drink are prepared.  This group of friends happens to be a very beerphilic group.  We each decided to bring a few bottles of great beer for everyone to try.  Of course, since none of us know what moderation even means, it turned into this:

The only one missing was the one in the refrigerator which happens to be the beer with a perfect score on Beer Advocate, Deschutes, The Abyss.  There was a total of 33 beers to try and we had to break it up over 3 nights.  Before you say, "oh, that's nothing" there was, of course, other drinks and the average ABV on this group of beers was close to 9%.  There weren't any in this group that were poor representations.  Most were fantastic, some were just really good.  We had a great time experiencing a whole bunch of great beer.

  3. That as a lot of beer for 3 days. But we persevered, and made it. A challenge well accepted.

    1. Yes, yes it was. We did push through and drink it all. I doubt they give medals for that.

  4. I actually have two days off now, in a row. There will be beer. And homemade crepes.

    1. Oh, that is exactly what I'd be doing, Brigid. Hmmm, maybe even a nice Double Chocolate Stout to go with the crepes. You may even be able to get Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout where you are. If you can, that will go with a mixed berry crepe like magic. Yum.
