AZ Beer week!

Did a modified strong beer fest for Tom (co-brewmaster) for his birthday. Started at Papago Brewing and loaded up a decent stockpile for the afternoon.

The Papago Brewing/Cheuvront cheese pairing on Sunday was delicious. My only complaint was that I could have easily had 2 plates of the cheese and 2 rounds of the pours. The barleywine and Imperial Stout were incredible.

Odell Brewery was at Papago Brewing on Monday night. Got to meet Doug Odell who recommended switching to full grain brewing.

The second year vintage of Cindy Lou Brew has received good reviews so far. A keg of espresso latte stout is about to be kegged!
