Be jealous of me...

Sooo at the aforementioned beer and sausage festival, there were 32 breweries (on Saturday), that brought 3-4 beers each. They were arranged indoors and outdoors and scattered amongst them, sausage kiosks. here's what we had to drink:

Adirondack Brewery: Dirty Blonde Ale, Fat Scotsman
Brewery Ommegang: Ommegang White, Rare Vos
Butternuts Beer & Ale: Country Gold Saison
Captain Lawrence Brewing: Extra Gold American Tripel, Liquid Gold
Chatham Brewing Co.: Maple Amber
Chelsea Brewing Co.: Showers & Flowers Spring Wheat, Red Tail
C.H. Evans/Albany Pump Station: Blonde, Brown
The Defiant Brewery: Belgian Style Tripel, Prohibition Lager
Gilder Otter Brewing Co.: Dunkelweizen
Olde Saratoga Brewing Co.: Summer Ale, Red Tail
Peeksill Brewery: Sally Sweeney's Stout
Roosterfish Brewing: Hefeweizen, Original Nut Brown Ale
Sixpoint Craft Ales: Mason's Black Wheat, Apollo American Wheat
Warwick Valley Distillery: Doc's Draft Hard Pear Cider, Hard Raspberry Cider
Blue Point Brewing Co.: Hoptical Illusion IPA, Rastafar Rye
Brooklyn Brewery: Intensified Coffee Stout
Ithica Beer Co. - Don't remember what we had
Keegan Ales - Don't remember what we had

the Captain Lawrence Brewing: Extra Gold American Tripel was the only beer that "wow-ed" me. And the second best was probably, Sixpoint Craft Ales: Mason's Black Wheat.

more fun stories later...

You need to try the Brooklyn Black Ops. It's the intensified stout, but aged in bourbon barrels and re-fermented later. It's super tuff - but also kind of rare. Trappeze got just a few bottles, but I'd image that you could get it there much easier.

Also, what all did Ommegang bring? They have some awesome stuff.
