TJs hosts Sierra Nevada Artisan Ale Experience: 5/16/09
(Taking over Scott's bar was Jeff Miller, Owner-TJs; Patrick Mullin, Eastern PA/NJ Sales-Sierra Nevada; Tommy Gannon, Director of Eastern U.S. Sales-Sierra Nevada)
(the Southern Hemisphere joined the 'Experience' lineup for a night of not-so-typical Sierra Nevadas at TJs in Paoli, PA)
According to TJs online tap list, we did not do a good enough job last night to kick the special kegs that were brought in for the current stop in Paoli, PA of the Sierra Nevada 2009 Artisan Ale Experience Tour.
Kellerweis will be out in bottles, but not on tap, in a couple of weeks. This was the only keg (or one of two?...) in PA for this pre-release tasting. Stop in and get some while you still can. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Me, personally? I enjoyed it more than the Brown Saison, which has been getting some nice buzz of its own lately. I wouldn't have minded a Torpedo, but I was living well enough without.
Of course, there was a T.U.D. of sorts as Mr. Mullin was leaving in the wee hours...a Chico IPA thank you very much. Hm, yes...thank you I think.
