Long have we been searching for the opportunity to sit amongst our friends and wax prophetic about snooty beers.
Unfortunately, the last time we did this the audio was ruined because the people over at the Public Library were all “offended” and kept yelling outrageous things like “put your shirt back on,” and “no-no-please not on the card catalog.” Excuse me, but if you didn’t want us drinking in there, why wasn’t there some kind of sign? Stop making us guess all the time.
For the first recorded incarnation of Beers of the Roundtable, we were joined by B&P site author Brian Crane; local purveyor of fine cheese and booze’s, Bryan – from Oakton Wine Shop; the wildcard Casey Dukes; all accompanying our venerable host, Chad Dukes.
Hit the jump for a full listing of the beers sampled, including the video of the taping.
Double spoiler alert; 1 – the ratings each Beer received are included below, 2 – the video includes very tasteful scenes of a partially clothed Puerto Rican wielding a jungle blade.
