Had a great time at the Pumpkin Beer Fest on Saturday. Her are a few pics.

This year's pumpkin "cask" (Notice the pumpkin cask sitting in the brewery in the background. This will be tapped at the Elysian Fields location next Saturday 10/27)

The Pumpkin Festival was definately a great event overall. I learned quite a bit from hanging out with Brewtopia, and some of the industry folks he knows. Probably my biggest weakness overall is picking out certain flavors and associating them with something else, which makes events like these worthwhile to improve my overall informal judging capability. Didn't associate a certain taste with band-aids on a smoke beer until he pointed it out, then it was right in my face.

Probably not until 2009, It's about third on the list right now. I spent a llot of time in that area of Europe, but not much time in Belgium. Kind of makes me sad Plan on getting back though and doing it right. I do South America at the beginning of next year and I"m sure SWMBO will want us to do something together of her choice after that, so hopefully back to Germany/Belgium following that!
