Damn, I need to go pick up some of those.

Some thoughts/questions:
- The lemon pepper saison actually sounds frackin' delicious!!! Is it chile peppers or black peppercorn?
- Is the Old Ben Ale an old ale? (Stupid question, I'm sure it is. Just curious)

Here is a quote from an article I found here. Looks like the Lemon Pepper Saison uses Grains of Paradise. (off topic: if you haven't tried it, Grains of Paradise make an awesome alternative to regular peppercorns in the kitchen. They are peppery, but slightly fruity. They were actually used for a long time when Peppercorns were too expensive to import into England. )

Quote:
Michael Robinson’s Old Ben Ale is a malty English-style brew boasting notes of dried fruit, nut, and caramel. A slight bitterness balances the combination of five malts in this full bodied beer. Light brown with reddish highlights and good clarity, the ingredients of this English-style brew are all American with the exception of the yeast which is distinctively English. Created to enjoy on cold nights or as an after dinner treat, Mike’s Old Ale is 9% alcohol by volume, about twice that of the average beer. An experienced homebrewer, Mike was recognized as a finalist in the 2008 Samuel Adams LongShot American Homebrew Contest, as well as in the 2007 Samuel Adams® Patriot Homebrew Contest.

Ben Miller’s Mile High Barley Wine is a dark red, flavorful brew with rich plum undertones to complement its caramel malt flavor. A self-proclaimed ‘hop head,’ Ben used several varieties of citrusy American hops in this beer, creating its resiny aroma followed by clean bitterness. Ben’s Barleywine is his 100th homebrew, brewed to commemorate two years of enjoying the hobby.

Jeremy White, who works in the IT department at Samuel Adams, channeled his love of Belgian beers to create his Lemon Pepper Saison, a classic Belgian-style brew. Jeremy’s flavorful, refreshing and lighter-bodied beer is brewed with Grains of Paradise, an exotic tropical spice also found in Samuel Adams Summer Ale. The peppery flavor is complemented by a slightly sweet aroma with hints of vanilla and citrus, making this beer the perfect cool down to a hot summer day.

More beers to try. I'm going to have to go look for those as well. They make an Imperial Wit that I like. If you haven't tried that one, give it a shot!

I'm pretty sure that 2 slots are for homebrewers, and 1 they reserve for an employtee.
