Belgian Beer Fest 2010

Max's Taphouse hosts the Belgian Beer Festival every year (second weekend of February).  As most of the city is paralized by the snowstorm, Max's was roaring with people, and the beer was flowing.  I was able to walk down, a perk of living in the city.

I was able to meet up with other beer fans, bloggers ( and twitterites (@beerinbaltimore, @cdoubleIPA, @beersfordinner, @siana506).  Thanks go out to them for the great day.

Below is the list of beers that I was able to enjoy, hopefully you can get out (or have already been out) to enjoy the beer.  Most of the beer I had were in the smaller sample size.  The only full beer that I had was the Stillwater Stateside Saison, a great beer made by a local guy just breaking into the brewing business.  I am glad to be able to get his stuff from the beginning, because he is going to be big.

  1. The Bruery's Xmas Ale on Cask and three different Cantillions?!? Now I'm really jealous.


  2. JW- It was great. I made sure to get all three Cantillions, 3 small glasses,compared side by side. I was thrilled to get Two Turtle Doves on the beer engine.

  3. The Bruery has turned into one of my favorite breweries - Patrick is awesome!
