In this episode we talk about Beer Advocate Meet Ups. They are a great way to meet other beer enthusiast in your area. BA Meet Ups occur all over the country, to find one near you go to the events page on Beer Advocates website. Most recently we attended the BA Meet Up in Vermont, this one was at Otter Creek Brewery in Middlebury. There was an amazing selection of beers including homebrews, rare beers, production breweries test batches, and beers from all over the US and the world. Some of the big labels at our event were Westvleteren 12, New Glarus Raspberry Tart, Russian River Damnation, New England Imperial Stout Trouper and the list goes on and on. What I like most is you can try these rare beers along side of more popular beers in the same style and determine for yourself what is hype and what is truly a world class beer. That and of course all of the great friends we make.
Thank you Mike Garhart for hosting this event and Ruth Miller for organizing and executing it. We had a blast and look forward to seeing everyone again soon, Cheers from Here for the Beer.
