Picnic Beer October 14th 2012

We have a picnic every year in October. We sell beer at this year we have 7 kegs 6 different kinds of beer. We had the Dogfishhead 120, Lagunitas IPA, New Belgium Somersault, Spaten Oktoberfest, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Firestone Walker Pale 31.

Dogfish head 120
120 Minute IPA is brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full two hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for another month on whole-leaf hops! ABV 18.5%

This ultra strong ale is dark in color and lightly carbonated. It drinks more like a brandy or cognac. This ale should be served in 6 oz pours or if someone is bold 8 oz pour. I had a full
Pint of this beer that night but I’m a crazy man lol. I got a growler of this beer the next day and drank it for weeks after. It is the strongest beer I’ve had but very good.

Lagunitas IPA
This is a great stand-by. It is one of my everyday drinking beers. This a full bodied and flavored IPA. We had two kegs of this beer that day it is that good and popular. ABV 6.5%

New Belgium Somersault
This a light refreshing beer perfect for the summer and the hot beaming sun. Light color and citrus flavor on the back end
ABV 5.2%

Spaten Oktoberfest
This is a marzen style ale. it pours a dark amber color. it has bold flavors like most marzen style ale but drinks easy ABV 5.9%

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA
A good IPA with a almost peach, mango flavor ABV 7%

Firestone Walker Pale 31
A California style pale ale. They brewed this beer in homage to California being the 31st state. It is a good light pale ale ABV 4.9%

That day we sold more of the Spaten Oktoberfest and Lagunitas IPA then anything else. After we had all the workers stay and finish off the beer and we helped them out with that. It was 12 hours of selling then drinking beer.
