Food selections included Coddog (a Sea Dog IPA breaded footlong hotdog shaped Cod portion), a collection of chilis, walking tacos, red beans and rice, vegetarian chickpea ragout, cherry koolaid pickles, chocolate chip cookies, vegetarian meatloaf, white castles, and passover brisket. Beer selections included Three Floyds Dark Lord, Russian River Pliny the Elder, an assortment of Schlafly Barleywines (06 and 08), Schlitz, Samichlaus, Rod's/Rock Bottom's Harvest Mild, Sun King Chocolate Stout, Cigar City (something), 2009 Deschutes Abyss, and a 20 year old can of Kentucky Derby Collector's Edition Little Kings.
When: This past Saturday, 11/21/09
Why: We really wanted to share rare beer with the public, and start a tradition of food and beer sharing tailgate events at breweries around the state.
Also worth noting: We hope to do this quarterly, and look forward to seeing you next time.
