My text read, "What are you doing Tuesday?" "I am opening up the Maple Bourbon Mexican Cake!"
Fernandez had me at, "Maple Bourbon!" Is this beer a 'white whale'? I am not sure how others feel after tasting it, but I think is does fall into that category. Most of the people who came to the share had a bottle in their cellars, but none were ready to open theirs just yet. The hype of this beer grew due to Westbrook not tapping their kegs of it on the release day, meaning if anybody wanted to try it, they had to open somebody's personal bottle (which was limit one per person).
It was the best beer I have ever had! The sweetness of the maple was very present in the beginning followed by the infamous heat from the peppers as you finished each sip. Just pure tastiness!!
As should be at any share, like caliber brews should be brought if you know there is going to be a main event. This share was no different, great beer after great beer showed up as we put "work in" on a Tuesday night at Good Bottle Shop. Below are just some of the beers that were shared on this evening. Thanks to all the guys who came out!!
