Spooge Beer, And Ways & Means...

Some in the blogosphere (who may, perhaps, have been ennobled by BGBW) expand their beer experience by travelling to the source to try rare beers, such as... ooo, I dunno, Russian River Pliny the Younger.

Some, blessed with contacts, and calm of demeanour, wait for such beer to come to them... And lo, it cometh to pass that an growler of such spooge, for which an host did queue for two blocks around the brewpub lo for an day as the sun measureth time, and for those whom god did not smile upon, lo they did gnasheth their teeth and wail and proclaim, "now we'll have to pay over the odds on eBay!!"

This pic was taken at lunchtime at Victoria Station, away from the mortal host, and lo, it was drunketh in all its 11% glory at The Rake.

Its good to have friends.

Contacts, Mark, contacts. Say no more, nudge nudge wink wink ;-)

It was splendid stuff. All the better for supping with good friends.

Good to hear. It went back on at the brewpub the week after but I missed both. I was quite happy with Elder, Supplication and Temptation though, fabulous beers.

@Mark: the only RRBC beer I've tried that I thought just 'meh' was their Dead Leaf Green, which is an English Pale Ale. It's unbalanced, with hops all over it in a way you wouldn't find with a UK-brewed beer.

@surf: you have tried RRBC beers - you got some Supplication and (I think) Damnation when we all met up at The Rake in 2008... best to Mrs D.
