Recap: 'Vote For Beer' tasting at Big Car

Last Friday's beer tasting at Big Car Gallery's First Friday art opening was an absolute blast. The show, "That Time of the Month", featured art/photography/crafts by the Naptown Roller Girls (if you don't know who they are, go right now to their website and get acquainted!). The girls are amazing athletes, artists, and friends - I can say that since I used to be one of them.

The crowd was strong at 6:00 and the gallery stayed packed through the entire evening. We served up lots of samples of our featured beers: Trois Pistoles from Unibroue and Duvel from Duvel Brewery (the Belgian selections) and Brass Knuckles from Barley Island and Kalamazoo from Bell's (the stout offerings).

It's hard to pick a single beer as the best crowd-pleaser, though I think the top two were the Brass Knuckles Stout and the Trois Pistoles. We had a great time talking to the crowd, and hopefully convinced more than a few people to search out some quality brews. Thanks to the following: Jim Walker and Audrey Barcio of Big Car for their hospitality as always
Matt Clapesattle from World Class Beverages for providing the beer
Deano's Vino for storing the beer before the event
Bud's Supermarket for being our indispensable ice supplier
Naptown Roller Girls for just being so damn awesome

We hope to hold another successful tasting next month! More photos of the night can be found at the Big Car Flickr page.
