The Next Beer to Die For, and Maxs Update, With a NEW Brewery debutting

Must Have This Beer Before You Die: Troegs bourbon-barrel-aged Mad Elf, currently at Max's (if we didn't kill it all last night). Ludicrously decadent. Mad Elf already was a decadent beer to begin with--a cross between a barleywine, a mead, and cherries at 11% alcohol by volume. Add the bourbon barrel richness, and ALL bets are off. Amazingly rich, but still nicely balanced for what it is and not "over the top".

Also on hand as of last night and quite tasty: Troegs Scratch #18, a triple rye IPA. Also some Magic Hat taps and firkins. As of last night, they had SEVEN full-sized firkins on the bar and two smaller cask pins on a rack in the back corner, all still pouring.
