Ska Brewing True Blonde Dubbel

This awesome brew was being poured in the Farm to Table area at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A very tasty dubbel with a fun label and to be honest sometimes I visit their site just to listen to the tunes.

Firestone Walker's Reserve Tasting

Volunteers pour a taste of Firestone Walker's Reserve for excited tasters at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A fantastic dark ale, smooth with chocolate hints. Only a few bottles were opened at a specific time during the festival, those at the end of the queue missed out!

Alchemist Brewery

Alchemist Pub & Brewery Ouroboros Double IPA. The beer from this brewery is usually draft only, but the brewer personally bottled a few specifically for the Media Luncheon at the 2010 GABF. I was lucky enough to attend and try this amazing brew, as well as hear the brewer speak about it. If you live in Vermont, go give this brewery a try!
