Bloggers ‘N’ Beer

blogger n beer menu

I attended the very delicious Bloggers ‘N’ Beer event at Library Bar with the tasting menu created by beer sommelier Christina Perozzi. The beer choices were excellent and the menu came in these little library cards, all in order from lightest to strongest. Ok, I’m a sucker for cute things and the library card menus were brilliant!

Back to the beers.. here was the menu:

1. 1903 Prohibition Lager – Craftsman Brewery (Pasadena, CA)

2. Blanche de Chambly – Unibroue (Chambly, Quebec)

3. Saison Dupont – Brasserie Dupont (Tourpes-Leuze, Belgium)

4. Maudite – Unibroue (Chambly, Quebec)

5. Inversion IPA – Deschutes Brewery (Bend, Oregon)

6. Black Butte Porter – Deschutes Brewery (Bend, Oregon)

7. Road Dog Porter – Flying Dog Brewery (Denver, CO)

8. Westmalle Trappist Tripel – Brouwerig Westmalle (Province of Antwerp, Belgium)

I think Boy and I have tried all of those before, except the Road Dog Porter. My beer memory is not so good as Boy’s but why do I need beer memory when I can just turn to him and say “hey, did we try this before”? I know, so lazy of me. Hey it’s equal exchange – he provides beer & beer knowledge and I provide food and somewhat truthful food knowledge.

I really gotta give it to Boy though for introducing me to quality beer and really piquing my interest in this delicious drink. Before I was just a beer drinker, and now a more discerning beer drinker. Seriously I’ve never met anyone who was so into beer as he is. To my dismay his fridge is always packed with beers and no food. I practically forced him to start this blog beerblahblog.blogspot.com telling him that only cool people blog. Hehe.

The menu actually had one of my favorite beers ever – Saison Dupont from Brasserie Dupont. I have hailed Brasserie Dupont as my favorite while sipping on some delicious Saison Dupont from Boy’s living room at least a few times while raising my chalice up and admiring the beautiful lacing. I can’t get enough of that yeasty character, a reason why I also really love Brut Champagne. There are only two alcohols that ever make me really swoon – that is a really good saison and really really good dry Champagne. Ok, and maybe a really piney floral double or triple IPA.

Christina came over and talked to us for a bit about the beers we were drinking. She’s so knowledgeable and easy going too. Very cool that she is considered one of the top beer experts on the West Coast. Go grrls! All I know is imma be drinking more beer and try to learn more too.

  1. Oh NO. I didn’t know you were there. I was there too. I wish I’d gotten the chance to finally meet you face to face. Oh well. Next time I guess.

  2. on ho you were there?! doh. well we’ll just have to meet next time, hopefully over something delicious. 🙂 what was your fav beer?

  3. ha ha, i walked by the event on my way home from the gym! i was wondering why it seemed to be busier than usual that night. 🙂 looks like it was a lot of fun!

  4. Boy is a lucky man indeed. Given all his beer drinking, one would expect a beer gut as large as Mt. Everest! Perhaps all the beer calories go to his toez. ; P
