Good beer at Goodbeer

Last night, CBW once again took to the streets. Well, the bars. Bar. Mister Goodbar, to be precise. After carefully selecting a flight of distinctly American beers for May’s Goodbeer Club, Rudy added in three CBW prototypes. For posterity, we present the list!

We're one MC and four guys sitting in the audience, and we be gettin' down with no delay

Victory Prima Pils
Smuttynose Star Island Single
Community Beer Works In C American Pale Ale
Ithaca Flower Power
Community Beer Works Release the Bats Porter
Goose Island Sofie
Community Beer Works Clever Name TBD Saison*
Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’
Stone Old Guardian
North Coast Old Rasputin

That’s a solid, solid list of beers. I had forgotten how much I liked Flower Power. And yet, when it came time for the free tasting, I overheard the fine folks pouring the beer remark repeatedly that everyone wanted CBW’s beer. That means a lot to us. Thank you.

If you had our beer last night, or have in the past, let us once again remind you that we have a “rate our beer” page. It’s completely anonymous, so don’t hold back. Help us help you drink good beer. Also, for what it’s worth, while drinking Release the Bats I created an entry for CBW on Untappd.

It’s true that we will be out at the Bidwell Farmer’s Market later this month — Saturday the 28th, to be precise — out in the (hopefully) nice weather, brewing up a batch of In C. There won’t be any beer there to sample, though, and for that we’re sorry. But hey, you can still see us! that should count for something, right?

We’ll have more photos (not taken on my iPhone in the dark) up on our Flickr account soon. We’ll let you know. Until then, please let us know, anonymously or otherwise, what you thought of the event and our beer. We loved talking to you, and you seemed to like our beer, so the future seems very bright indeed.

* Personally, I say we just keep this name

    Thanks, Heidi! The magic of Google Alerts had told me about your scores (Google sees all). Interesting that the Old Guardian ranked so low. (From my perspective, I had forgotten how awesome Flower Power was and bought a six pack over the weekend. It’s, um, gone.)

    We’re really glad your crew liked the beer. If they have anything more to add, you can either let us know here or on our rate page.
