Next up was Rock Bottom. The Brickway Brown was on special for $2.00 a pint and they also had a Cask edition of their ESB. The crowd is large, but there was no telling who was there for the pub crawl and who wasn't.
The third pub of the evening was Alcatraz, where Omar let us know that the special beers available were a bourbon stout, Half Moon's Pale Ale, and the Microbrew Festival 80 shilling ReplicAle. Omar said the bourbon stout was done in a 50 gallon batch in his friend's garage and stored on Knob Creek whiskey-soaked chips for 5 months. A very tasty brew, indeed. Omar also let us know about an upcoming brew next month made with Kolsch yeast and hop plugs. So look for that mid to late August.
Alcatraz. Prisoners coming.
The last pub on our list, Ram, had many beers on tap. I want to say at least 10, but nothing out of the ordinary as far as I could tell. The Total Disorder Porter I had was a nice finish to the evening.
