Maybe everything doesn't always come together *on* your birthday because what if it's a Wednesday. Which it was.
But they bought me some beers and me bought me some beers and so we had:
Cascade Gose -- coriander sea salt tart gose
Black Diamond Rampage DIPA -- didn't stand out, super sweet, super malty, maybe not fresh
Russian River Salvation -- dark Belgian that was also pretty crisp
Russian River Supplication -- white wine barrel sour that's so deep, best of the night maybe
Toppling Goliath pseudoSue APA -- top three beer no matter what the category is
Stillwater Stereo IPA -- did *not* stand up to the rest of the list, to say the least
Pretty good for a guy in his mid-thirties, generally, around in that area, who was also saving the Arthur for the weekend and somehow showed restraint.
Ended with an early night and someone faintly crying, natch.
