Fletty passed around some traditional mead from various varietals of honey for sample and discussion, including: raspberry, blackberry, tupelo, a blend of the 3, and an ’09 fruit mix. Jeff follwed with mystery beers, where we had to guess if they were pro or homebrewed. Some of the comments included…
“This makes my beer taste better.”
“Pliny is like Bud Lite compared to this shit.”

They should be to the Gnome by around 6:45pm and will be the first item on our “agenda”.”Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout, at 9.5% alcohol by volume, boasts a selection of eleven malts and grains, balanced by three distinct hops. Munich, Caramel and Chocolate malts combine with classic Pale and Pale Ale malts to provide a rich, dry character balancing Big Eddy’s hoppy assertiveness provided by Warrior, Summit and Glacier hops.”The 2007 edition of this beer was brewed at their small 10th Street brewery in Milwaukee, I have no idea if the same applies for the 2010 edition but the last time I had it it was a very nice beer.http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/leinenkugels-big-eddy-imperial-stout/78733/http://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/stories/2010/10/04/daily50.htmlWe’ll also talk about the upcoming Upper Mississippi Mash Out and, as usual, feel free to bring your homebrew to share.
