hair of the dog dock sale!

I woke up at 2:00 am and couldn't get back to sleep because I was too excited for the event. I killed some time around the house, went to jack in the box for breakfast, and ended up at hair of the dog at 5:15. Second person there. After a few more people showed up, and a group descended on the tasting tables, I joined the bunch and shared my bottles. I was rewarded with an amazing selction of beers that I sampled over the next 4 hours. I kept a list of those I tried for the purpose of this blog. Here they are:

When the sale started, I was the second to purchase beer, and the first to order any magnums, so technically, I bought the first magnum of Michael ever sold, and the first magnums of 2009 fred from the wood and cherry adam ever sold.

I also picked up a mixed 6 pack of the above beers.

All in all, an awesome event, but I was so tired by the time I got my beers, that I came straight home. 5 hours in that kind of cold, drinking, is enough!
