Line-Up For Extreme American Craft Beer Tasting (19th May)

I now have the line-up for the tasting of ultra-extreme US Craft beers on 19th May (7.30pm at DH Westbridge).
Myself and Andreas from Vertical Drinks will be hosting. We are still finalising the line-up but the lead act will be a selection of wacko bottles from Dogfish Head, a gang of stoner-brewers from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware (marginally easier to pronounce than a certain Icelandic volcano). Star of the show may be the legendary 120-Minute IPA, which clocks in at an immodest 18% ABV. I say "may" because this stuff is as rare as hens' teeth. Follow us on Twitter for more updates. In the meantime, we can confirm the following monsters:

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 5.6%
Sierra Nevada Kellerweis Hefeweizen 4.8%
Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA 7.2%
Victory HopDevil IPA 6.7%
Victory Saison (large format) 7.5%
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA 6.0%
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA 9.0%
Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron 12.0%
Stone Leviation Ale 4.0%
Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale 10.0%

Aficionados will have noticed the presence of Arrogant Bastard, a stupidly rare beer in the UK.
For £10 you will get the opportunity to attend a chaotic but ultimately satisfactory tasting.

I f you can't make this one, our next humdinger of this type will be on 16th June.
