I just met the beer geek at one of my favorite wine shops. That’s right, I don’t think of them as much of a source of beer compared to a couple of the others, but Brian, their beer buyer is one of those who goes to every convention, reads everything published, visits every brewery he can reach . . . you get the idea. I mentioned that Ramstein tasting last week and that they were excited to have a couple of barrels of Eisbock. Brian led me over to an Aventius Eisbock which I may have tonight.
He told me that if there was a beer that I wanted to try, he would try to get it. I smiled and said I was looking for Old Peculier. He smiled and pointed at the nearest cooler, so now I have a 6-pack of Old Peculier and I will *definitely* have some of that tonight. My wife is excited too, as it’s one of the few beers that she really likes.
p.s. We both still really like it!
