BABBLE – December 2017 Public Meeting Notes
Our Dec 14th, 2017 meeting was held at Perfect Brewing Supply, Libertyville (perfectbrewsupply.com). Thanks to Andy & Ryan for their continued support. With the Winter & Holiday season, the homebrews and commercial beers that were shared ran to the heavy and flavored/spice variety, some very special beers. And a variety of edibles as well. Among the homebrews:
An Oktoberfest, a Doppelbock, a Dark Brown Ale smoked over Oak & Maple leaves with marshmallow (of course!), Session Rye, Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout, English Nut Brown, a Belgian Pale, a Chocolate Rye Stout w/Black Pepper (I think that was in the Choc Rye, might have been a separate beer, my notes are fuzzy there), Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, a Gruit and a Raisin Mead. And a Summer Blonde snuck in there as well. OK, adding “and a Partridge in a Pear Tree” is too obvious, but I’m doing it anyway!
