Cask Madness in Tallahassee

Like cask beer? You're in luck, because this town is going crazy.

But first, a few reminders... Fermentation Market is having their brew school this Sunday featuring porters and stouts. More information is available here. They've also opened their new tasting room, which you can see here.

Okay, so I guess that was really only one reminder. Deal with it. Let's get to the good stuff.

Keeping with Fermentation Lounge, they announced on Facebook that they got a cask of Cigar City's Humidor Dry Stout, which is going to be killer, I'm sure. The tentative tapping date is Saturday, February 4th. They usually tap them right at opening, which I believe is 4pm on Saturdays.

Proof announced a bunch of casks in their last e-mail. First of all, don't forget the killer Great Divide cask this coming Wednesday. Besides that, they have landed casks of Cigar City Smokeabaga (chipotle treated Tocobaga) as well as a kick-ass cask of Oskar Blues Double Dry-Hopped Deviant Dale's IPA, their brand new IPA. Stoked. In addition, they've announced that a Bell's cask will be present at some point but they aren't releasing what it is yet... mmmmmm.

Looks like we're going strong for the next couple of months, folks. Keep your eyes here for all the latest. Feel free to comment or e-mail me if you have more or new brew news!

Cask at Proof!

Next Wednesday (February 1st) at 8pm Proof will be tapping a sick cask that is a blend of Espresso Oak Aged Yeti and Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti. Oh boy! That sounds freakin' tasty. Sadly I will not be there at 8... but I'll figure that out in the meantime.

Sometime soon I will do an article about my trip to New Orleans to visit Avenue Pub for their rare Swedish beer event. It was awesome and I have plenty to share!

Updates... FINALLY!

Ok, here we go... I've been behind, and there is plenty going on.

Let's start with Proof, as they have a couple of things coming up. Next Wednesday, January 25th, they will be having a Terrapin event where they will be giving away glassware that includes Terrapin's logo as well as Proof's logo. That's pretty sweet! I don't have dates or exact brews yet, but word is they also have a few tasty casks coming as well, so keep your eyes peeled here for those, as I'm sure you'll want to go.

Fermentation Market now has taps in the store so you can drink while you browse. I'm not 100% sure how they got the licensing to do that, but I'm no expert. My guess is they are including the store in the bar license since it's next door now... or something of that sort. In addition, they will be having their first "Fermentation Beer University" course about stouts and porters on Sunday, January 29th at 5pm, featuring Brooklyn Black Ops.

Momo's is... probably making another beer. Who knows? I'll let you know as I find out!

Real Quick...


I'm sorry I haven't been updating as much lately. Things slowed down during break, so I sort of faded away, and then I stopped posting for a few reasons...

1) My computer currently isn't working. I'm pretty sure it's just the AC Adapter, and HP has a new one coming for me in the mail.

2) I was out of town for awhile auditioning for America's Got Talent. I'm in a heavy metal tuba-euphonium quartet. You can watch a rehearsal of what we auditioned with by clicking here.

3) I got hired as Adjunct Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at Valdosta State University, which has been taking up some of my time, obviously.

I have to jet for now, but as soon as I can, I'll get more updates up... there's plenty more happening around town these days!
