The Blogger Beer Blast

JOIN myself and Deb of Must Be Nice this coming Saturday night, December 6th at 10 o'clock for the very first "Blogger Beer Bash," where we will be partaking of and reviewing one of the strongest beers in the world, Dogfish Worldwide Stout. The 2003 DW Stout comes in at a staggering 18.8% abv, and is considered by the brewer to be the best of the bunch so far.

GAZE in wonderment as our typing skills degrade with each sip, until we pass out face down on the keyboard!

SHUDDER in pained empathy as you think "There but for the Grace of God Go I!"

I'll be opening a AIM chatroom for the event--details on how to join will be posted at Hraka. If you'd like to join the official review team, you'll need your own bottle of Dogfish Worldwide Stout, a brew which is not only hard to find, as Deb can attest, but nigh impossible to ship. If you do happen to possess a bottle of the potent elixer and wish to, not only drink it in the company of Internet strangers, but talk about drinking it, let me know, and I'll add you to the list.

Those without the magical stout are also welcome. Bring a beer of your choice and let us know what you think of it. If enough people participate, we may make this a regular event. If no one shows other than Deb and I, we'll pretend a lot of people showed up, then never mention again.

Fair enough?

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Say, Bigwig, what's your take on Young's Special London Ale and their Ramrod Ale?

Posted by: Jim at December 2, 2003 11:59 PM

could i get one on such short notice, i would join you, but things being what they are, i guess i'll just drink my standard domestic to my normal excess.

Posted by: jawbreaker at December 3, 2003 06:40 AM

Haven't had the Youngs since I started taking notes, but I remember liking them a good deal back when I was entering beers into the imbibed database.

I've order the Worldwide Stout for my dear hubby, but it won't be here until after Saturday. Plus, we have the always exciting company Christmas party on Saturday night. All this to ask if a transcript of the Blogger Beer Bash will be available. DH and I would love to hear all the reviews.

Thanks!

Posted by: Beth at December 3, 2003 04:44 PM

Preview is my friend... meant to say that I've orderED the stout for DH.

Posted by: Beth at December 3, 2003 04:45 PM

I'll try to get a bottle of the Dogfish at the place that sells me Young's.

Posted by: Jim at December 3, 2003 05:42 PM

Bigwig, a store here in Charlottesville has the $8.50/12oz bottle stout, and I'm going to pick up a bottle. The virtual tasting still on?

Posted by: Jim at December 5, 2003 10:56 AM

The tasting is still on, yes. Bloody UNC has me working that night, but I should be done by 10.
