A Lot's going on

I'm not sure why, but evidently this coming weekend is popular for planning beer related events as we have a flood of beer fun heading our way. There are three very different, but all very exciting beer events going on around our fair city this weekend.
- First event is at the recently reviewed and recently opened Block 7 Wine Co. This Saturday from 12 pm to 3 pm they will be hosting a Beer for Wine Lovers tasting. They will be tasting 4 different Belgian beers Saison Dupont, Biere de Miel, Cuvee Rene, DeuS Brut des Flandres, picking each of these as they are beers that would really open up the mind of a wine drinker. All of these beers will be available at Block 7 for purchase by the bottle or the case. The best part? The event is free. Before heading to the next event, I have spoken with the folks at Block 7 and they have new beer glass ware (yay no more shaker pints!).

- The next event on Saturday takes over to Anvil Bar and Refuge where Bobby and the gang will be hosting a Beer and Cheese pairing starting at 4 pm. They will be pairing 5 very unique beers with different cheeses. This one's not free, the charge is $55.00. Contact the bar for ticket information.

- If you haven't had enough beer related fun on Saturday, Gingerman will be hosting a Sam Adams Imperial Tasting. Sam Adams rep Matt Ludlow will be pouring all three of the Sam Adams new Imperial beers and discussing each one. The cost will is $11.25 and reservations are recommended.

All in all a pretty strong weekend of beer related fun. Unfortunately due to work obligations I may or may not be able to participate in the fun. So if you do go to any of the events let me know how they go.
