about) Thanks to Master Chef Chad Waters for his suggestion. I have had almost every different barrel aged beer that NBC makes. But have not yet had the opportunity to drink Fathead. I have a feeling sharing this is the best way to go because of the high ABV. Although I love barrel aged Hop God and that's 10% so maybe I could take care of this beer on my own. I'd probably rather share it though so I don't end up taking a nap right afterwards.
Warp back to Friday (I'm taking you guys on a time travel adventure this week) and this may have been one of the best beer weekends I have had in a while. Not only are my beers maturing in the kegerator to the point where I'm really excited to enter them in the next few competitions. But for whatever reason, this weekend involved all sorts of beer goodness that began with my shift on Friday at Lauter Tun. Now I just started working at Lauter Tun as a Barback/Bartender in Training. I have plenty of knowledge in the beer area, and I'm actually very happy and proud of the bar because they have an excellent tap selection which can all be enjoyed from the proper beer glassware! But I'm not the most knowledgeable person as of yet on all of the mixed drinks. I'm learning them and I can make a killer Old Fashioned or Moscow Mule. Start throwing some crazy named drinks at me though and I'll be asking for backup! Check out the Lauter Tun website here. If you're in Omaha and want to check out a great craft beer bar. This is my usual watering hole.
Last night I watched Breaking Bad with the wife and enjoyed a couple brews. I picked up some Paulaner Oktoberfest/Marzen to get myself psyched for my Oktoberfest that was fermenting right next door in my office. I also drank some of my Dusseldorf Altbier and enjoyed how much the beer had progressed during lagering. It has really cleared up and has a great malty taste now. I can't wait to enter it in the Nebraska State Fair this week. I'll let everyone know how that goes and any results. As of last weekend I received a call about the Sioux Falls Empire Fair and that my Oatmeal Stout was in the top 16 entries. I haven't heard anything other than that. Once I see a full list I'll post it up and see how everything else faired.....at the fair. Yeah. Alright have a great week everyone. Thanks for reading.
