The Brewer's Plate scores big again in 2016

Hopefully, you've had a chance to catch my full wrap-up over at Communities Digital News [click here if you've not yet]. As usual, your assistance with pushing those little social buttons to share on Facebook, Twitter, etc. is always much appreciated.

I go through a full run-down of beers and pairings that left a lasting memory from The Brewer's Plate 2016. Now don't go getting all offended if I didn't list your favorites of the night. But, feel free to weigh in with comments.

With around fifty pairings to get to, it's impossible even before walking through the door to think of trying everything. What you won't find on my list of highlights, however, are any blatantly hop-forward — say double IPAs — beers. For this particular event, I opted to steer away from them.

(The Industry and Tröegs Brewing Company crews)

(Josh and Josh from Deer Creek Malthouse)

(Dessert from Garces Events Catering paired with Victory's V-12)

(The VIP session surge)

(St. Benjamin Brewing Company's bock served with Weckerly's Custard)

(Beer for breakfast, or any meal of the day)

(Jake Borer and Tim Ohst from Sly Fox Brewing Company)

(Free Will Brewing Company's Coffee Oatmeal Brown with molasses and coffee aged in a rum barrel and called Brown Beard)

(Bread from High Street on Market for the train ride home)
