Great American Beer Festival. Apparently there were more than 450 brewers with over 2200 beers to choose from!? Yikes. We hardly made a dent in that spread.
My most memorable beer was the Bloody Beer from Shorts Brewing Company which is brewed with tomatoes, dill, horseradish, peppercorns, and celery seed! I also enjoyed a very bubbly champagne-like Saison by Pelican. Eric reports that his most memorable beers were Port Townshend's Yoda's Green Tea Gold (tasted like genmaicha), a Chai Stout, Elysian's Avatar Ale (a jasmine IPA), and MateVeza's Morpho (hibiscus, bay leaf, mate, and no hops).
