Graduation Day, and a Beertopia run

Today was Graduation Day for the area schools, and lots of people had ordered kegs of root beer for their parties. Sunday is the busiest day of the week at Dusters because of their terrific brunch buffet, and the kitchen staff doesn't have time to carry kegs out of the basement, so I went in to take care of them. All went well except for the paint I scratched on one guy's pickup truck when I lifted the keg in. I gave him my business card and told him to send me the bill.

Paris flies back to New Jersey today, so I took her to the airport. On the way home, I stopped by Beertopia to restock my beer fridge. Here's what I picked up:

  • Boulder Mojo Risin'

  • Sapporo Imported Premium Beer

  • St Peters Golden Ale

  • Van Honsebrouck Casteel Gouden / Triple / d'Or

  • des Rocs Blanche Double

  • des Rocs Grand Cru

  • des Rocs Ambree

  • St-Bernard Grotten Flemish Ale

  • St-Bernard Pater 6

  • Achouffe Houblon

  • Achoufe N'ice

  • du Bocq Blanche de Namur

  • de Koningshoeven Dubbel

  • Odell Double Pilsner

  • Ridgeway IPA

  • Inveralmond Lia Fail

  • Coniston Premium XB Bluebird Bitter

  • JW Lees Harvest Ale 2006

  • Spoetzl Shiner Hefeweizen

  • Samuel Adams Black Lager

  • Samuel Adams Summer Ale

  • Samuel Adams Boston Ale

  • Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat (2 bottles, for some reason)

  • Leinenkugel Creamy Dark

  • Boulevard Zon

  • Boulevard Lunar Ale

  • New Belgium Mothership Wit

  • New Belgium Skinny Dip

  • Great Divide DPA / Denver Pale Ale

  • Highfalls JW Dundee American Pale Ale

  • Cuauhtemoc Sol

  • Breckenridge Summer Bright Ale

  • Guinness Smithwick's

  • Kulmbacher Premium Pils Edelbier

  • Sierra Nevada Stout

Of these, the Sierra Nevada Stout was the only one that was already on my beer list.

Tomorrow, clean lines and brew some Hefeweizen.

Wow that's a very comprehensive list. Do you mind if I have this post up on my blog too? That's a nice beer check list to have for parties.

Sure, go ahead. But be advised that it's just a small sample of what's available at Beertopia, and the only reason I picked those particular beers is that they weren't already included in my notebooks.

have fun

Dang, what was your bill?

$150 or so. It's tough for me to get out of there for less! :)
