BeerFest! (the 2 sweetest words in the English language)

Well beer lovers, yesterday I attended BeerFest at Bottlescrew Bills (

20 brewers, over 50 beers. I was like a kid in some kind of store. Lars (another beer afficiando) came with me. Although I had had most of the beers on offer, I will admit I was pleasantly surprised to try some new ones. The biggest standout was Samichlaus, a Swiss lager that is apparently the strongest lager in the world. At 14% I am not surprised. It packs quite a whollop. I was also quite impressed with the beers on offer from the HalfPints brewery (out of Winnipeg I believe). Worth looking into some more!
