Stub & Herb’s beer tasting recap

Don Osborn

Stub & Herb’s had their first in a series of beer tastings last night. I headed down to check it out – after all, it’s beer, right? A rep from Sierra Nevada spoke first and passed around  some beers – their pale ale, ESB and this year’s Bigfoot. Don Osborn spoke next, taking the homebrewer’s perspective and talking about some beer styles while sharing some of his homebrew (a steam beer), Flat Earth’s Winter Warlock and a flight of pale ales from Brau Brothers, Summit and Furthermore as well as Left Hand Sawtooth ESB. As always, it’s interesting to see a range of flavors within one general style of beer.

It was a relaxed, low-key event with lots of audience participation, some tasty appetizers and plenty of good beer. For $5, the event was a steal. Thanks to Jon for putting this together!

    Heh, it looks like a bad bit of photoshop or something. I wish we could have made it to Stub & Herb’s last night, but…

    We finally got there for the first time on Monday night. I like the place.

    I tried to fix it, but time constraints killed that notion… I’ll try again when I have a few moments. 🙂

    I blame you all for drinking all the Rasputin. Stopped in for a pint and it was all gone 🙁

  6. Ben says:

    There was no Rasputin at the tasting.

    It was a bigger turnout than I think Jon or I expected. But, we got through it and now we have a better idea of how many people want to come out to something like this. The next one will probably be the last Wed of March, the 26th.

    Oh, I only don’t look as demonic in person; that doesn’t mean the inner demon isn’t still there.
