Anyone ever go to the Sam Adams Beer Lover's Choice?

As some of you might know, every Sam Adams brews two different types of beer and takes it around the county letting the people decide what one is better. The winner gets added to the line up the following year.

This year it is a Pils vs an Ale

This is the 5th year they are doing it.

I have never been to one before. Tomorrow night they are coming to a bar near me. I want to go.

I was just kind of wondering what to expect?

See if you can get one of their Sam Adam's Lager glasses. They are great and I've heard of people getting them for free at events.

Piss on them. They aren't coming to Michigan! FWIW - I'd probably pick the IPA...

I did it this past weekend at a beer fest. I thought the Czech Pils was a clear winner. Very nice beer.

I also have to give props to Sam Adams. I don't regularly drink their beers. Some I like, some I really don't. I had a nice chat with the guy at the booth and then grabbed a little wallet size fold-up freebie they had at the booth. It unfolds to a ~8X11 sheet that on one side has ales styles, and the other side has lagers. For each style, they give a brief flavor profile, then commercial examples of the styles, including those of their competitors for that style. Basically saying, if you like this beer of ours, you might try this one form another brewery. Of course the reverse is true. If you like XXXXX, you might like this SA beer. It also had food pairings.

I did the test up in Boston last week. I chose the pilsner. However both were a little warm from being out in the hot sun. I also tried an experimental stout at the brewery that was pretty good. If they have Brick Red I suggest trying some of that as well. I think they only serve Brick Red in Mass. but it may be at the Beer Lover's Choice.

Apparently as far as NC goes, the only people that know anything about beer must live in Charlotte since that's the only place they are gonna be doing this. What's that crap!
