Sorry to see you go bro


Unfortunately, one of my best friends and my primary home brewing partner is moving from away Austin to New Orleans in a couple of weeks.  Much of what I've learned about beer I've learned from Josh.

With practicality in mind, they're downsizing a bit before packing up and heading off.  So Josh invited a small gathering of beer nerds to his places for sausage and beer yesterday.

On the menu was this spectacular arrangement (in order):

  1.  Jester King Mikkeller
  2. Maui Brewing Liquid Breadfruit
  3. Lazy Magnolia Deep South Pale Ale
  4. Lagunitas Brown Shugga
  5. Russian River Pliny the Elder
  6. Firestone Double Jack IPA
  7. Hebrew Bittersweet Lenny's RIPA
  8. Avery Brewing Maharaja Imprerial IPA (aged)
  9. Avery Brewing Maharaja Imperial IPA (new)
  10. Russian River Pliny the Elder
  11. Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA

Awesome evening.  Sorry to see you go, bro.  At least we're doing it with style.  And good beer.
