Podcast to Post Soon - In the Meantime...

As the current podcast is being edited into TWO versions (the short story, and the long story), we'll take a moment to remind you that the next tasting panel will take place at the East Village Tavern at 6:30pm on Monday Dec. 20, 2010, as we'll  continue to sample from the vast offerings of holiday/winter beers that have overrun the current beer landscape! One special beer that we have for the coming tasting is Norway's Nønge Ø Winter Ale, for which there are no words that aptly do a description justice. "Mmmmmmmyummmmm" is as close as it comes. If you want to try a rare draft of this winter treat, it is one of the numerous outstanding winter/holiday/Christmas beers currently available on tap at Rattle N Hum, 14 E. 33rd St. by Madison. Get it while it lasts!

Next Beer Panel - Monday Dec. 13! 8PM

Our next beer panel will feature some very curious winter/holiday beers, including Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome. We'll meet at the back table of the East Village Tavern, Monday Dec. 13, 2010, at EIGHT PM (rather than the regular 6:30pm). We'll sample 4 or so beers that we'll bring, and at least one from the impressive taps at EVT.
All are welcome to join us, as we record our podcast. An RSVP isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated (to bobw -at- wfmu -dot- org).

Some of the other beers we may be sampling:
  Brooklyn Winter Ale (Brooklyn, NY) - both bottle and tap
  Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hop Ale - (Chico, CA)
  Mahr's Bräu Christmas Bock (Bamberg, Germany)
  Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome (Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, England)
  Ridgeway's Santa's Butt Winter Porter (South Stoke, England).

Mondays! Not Tuesdays!

Before we even get our first beer tasting panel under our belt, we have to change the day of the weekly panel from Tuesdays to MONDAYS. There are a few reasons for the change - none of which are noteworthy. But we'll be able to begin a little later on Mondays, at 6:30pm, rather than at six. We'll meet up at the back table of the East Village Tavern on Monday Dec. 6, 2010 at 6:30pm to try some holiday/winter seasonal beers! See you then!
