Annual Rare Flemish Beer Extravaganza 8/19/10

Recommended Posts

I came across news of an extraordinary event taking place in the-middle-of-nowhere, Maine, on Thursday, August 19th.

Chris Lively, proprietor of Ebenezer's Pub in Lovell, Maine has been collecting rare beers for his Pub for a long time. Last year, he extinguished a couple remaining specimens at this apparently fabulous dinner, held at his establishment.

Here is this year's menu (w/pairings). DEFINITELY check this out!

Seating is limited to 100, costs $295, and has been sold out for a while. Folks camp out back and keep the party going. In fact, the next day kicks off The 6th Annual Belgian Beer Festival also held at Ebenezer's.

I've read some fantastic reports about the camaraderie, the food, the amazingly rare and delicious beer, the mosquitoes, and think hard about how I'm going to make it next year.

More info is at http://beernews.org/

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
