This afternoon I’m headed to Providence, RI to help judge beer at the Great International Beer Festival. It’s my first “official” judging gig, although I’m not concerned. Let’s just say, after nearly six years of beer blogging, I feel qualified. I expect to have some interesting stories to share at the end of the weekend.
I’d like to remind everyone that I’m giving away some loot this week. I plan on picking a winner on Sunday, so consider this your last reminder!
Just recently, Wachusett brewery started doing something that no other craft brewery (that I know of) has done. The fine folks at Wachusett were nice enough to share their invention with me.
I introduce to you…..Wachusett Wicked Big Cans. Don’t go looking for W.B.C. at your local store though. These 32-ounce bad-boys are only available at the brewery. Enhancing the cool-factor, the cans are filled and sealed on-demand. That is, they work like a growler; you walk into the brewery, try some beer on tap, pick the one you want, ask for the Wicked Big Can and BOOM! The WBC is filled and sealed right in front of your eyes.
Tonight I enjoyed my can of Wachsuett Monsta IPA. And yes, I drank the whole thing right from the can!
