Default Widmer OKTO

I found this at a Bevmo in Sunnyvale CA.
I am so stoked. I bought 2 six packs.. would have bought more but there was some other things that required purchasing.

The last time I tasted this was at the Gasthaus when I was back home on a contract gig.

I am praying to the beergods that I can source some SnowPlow this year.
My clone is good.. but I want the real deal to compare.

Snow Plow started life as Collaborator Milk Stout in 1998. This was the first beer brewed by Widmer in conjunction with the Oregon Brew Crew. Members Ken Bietschek, Jeff Brinlee and Jeff Langley came up with the recipe and brewed a 40 barrel batch in Widmer's pilot system. In 2004, it became a seasonal.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

I tried some of this yesterday, and thought it was quite tasty. Had a nice smooth taste for easy consumption and a very good summer beer.
