bbjon raises an interesting question. Donations of beer. I am sure there is legalese there that I hope someone recognized. I like the donation. I think maybe that the beer and alcoholic beverages shouldn't be on an honor donation system. I would hope it would be an easy question to ask of our brewery friends that donated. Perhaps we go college party style and sell an armband, then tips as you will. Still I would like to see the event and the organizers bases covered in any situation.
The Oatmeal Stout was outstanding!
This is why we went with the donation and not a specific $ amount for the privilege for beers. The beer was free, donations were strongly encouraged. Remember, Kansas has yet to ratify the 21st amendment - the amendment to repeal Prohibition. Kansas liquor laws are some of the strongest in the country and serving homebrew outside of the home is not exactly Kosher.
Speaking of which - thanks for the stout complement. It is my interpretation
of Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat. About 10-20% more hops, 10-20% less lactose (milk sugar). A tad less sweet, a tad more hops, both of which accentuates the dark malt and gives the perception of coffee - which no coffee was put in it.
Please - patronize Cinder Block Brewery. Great little brewery in Northtown. Take Oak across the river, turn right on 18th, 1 block on left. Great people, even greater beer.
