The OBF Short List

Well, at 14 samples, I don't really know if I can call it a "short" list. Let's call it the 14 beers I hope to get through tomorrow. At 4oz a sample, that's a little under five 12 oz bottles of beer. Tough, but not impossible!

Anyway, here they are (in no particular order):

Goose Island Beer Co - Matilda
Green Flash Brewing Co - Hop Head Red
Iron Horse Brewery - Quilter's Irish Death
New Holland Brewing Co - Dragon's Milk
Old Market Pub & Brewery - "Hopcask" Triple Tripel Organic
Pelican Pub & Brewery - Surfer's Summer Ale
Roots Organic Brewing Co - Calypso Ale
Surly Brewing Co - Coffee Bender
Bell's Brewery - Bell's Porter
BridgePort Brewing Co - Hop Czar
Caldera Brewing Co - Caldera Ginger Ale
Golden Valley Brewery - Cote d'Or
Flying Fish Brewing Co - Love Fish Abbey Dubbel
Collaborator - Resurrection Rye

Of course, if my liver is accommodating, I'll probably finish the festival with a taste of Pliny. It's one of the finest beers made in America, albeit one I've already had the pleasure of sampling.

The guys at have a terrific list of everything being showcased at the festival, along with descriptions of each. Check it out.

Great list! What did you get to taste yesterday?
I am quite fond of the Matila, the Hop Nelson and that lovely Cote d'Or. Don't forget the weird and wondreful Rock Bottom Congo Queen.
My full preview and tasting notes are here:
