As for who liked what: The Weissebock and EYE.P.A recieved the most votes, EYE.P.A came out the overall winner after Munkey 1 and I voted. But the big surprise was the Mystery Beer - it won the title of most consumed.
We're definatly planning to do this again! Maybe next time we'll have to have a BBQ and beer tasting!

(That's ice on the glass, I didn't want to wait anymore for the beer to chill)
The price was right and it was sunny out and we were having a BBQ - perfect conditions for a good IPA. And, wow this was a good beer. So good I went and got another bottle the day after I tried it.
Pretty typical IPA until you taste it. Normal pour, smells hoppy but not overpowering, medium viscosity, good head. Taste of the first sip almost had me worried - BAM! IPA! I am HOPS, ROAR! But, by the finish of the first sip the imperal-ness made itself clear, the beer had a beautiful alcohol sweet finish. This taste would make a good Imperial IPA ice cream.
I really enjoyed this beer, the dichotomy really made it interesting. It is to beer what the pre-mixed peanut butter and jelly (the one with columns of each one in the jar) is to sandwiches.

Its going to be bigger and badder than we originally thought! 9 different beers, 1 cider and 3 potential late entries. Yep, that’s right - Lucky number 13, 13 of our homebrew's! To put that in perspective its more than twice what 'Bob's Burger and Brew' has on tap... And if that's not enough there might even be live music by The Collected!
So, if you like beer - this Saturday, May 10th, come hang out with Brew Munkey!
The confirmed attendees list:
Including possible guest appearances by:
The Imperial Tard Munkey
Mocha Cherry Stout

Milk Stout was the first thing that popped into mind. It has a smooth, creamy body that coats the tongue, has a slight porter aftertaste, but lacks the alcohol or co2 bite I am looking for. I drank it in a bottle so I don't have the body color. Try it, its not bad. Just make it your first drink.
