Some new friends
I met a few guys yesterday at a party that are original NYC Homebrewer Guild members. They are brewers and judges. They know several commercial brewers including Garrett Oliver. Caser, who threw the party, knew him from college, pre-brewing!. I did bring my Saison to this party, but I was not in the frame of mind to ask for a formal judging from these guys. A third guy, Casey did say it was at least true to the style. The one NYCHG guy, John Naegele, brought a bunch of big beers....Wass-Ale, 10X, hopped mead, belgian stout. All were really good. I have a long way to go!
