Peoria International Beer Festival

ChrisMac and Jason and I attended the Peoria International Beer Festival this past weekend. Despite the intense rain storms that kept sweeping over the area, we had a great time. For me, it was a very interesting mix because Jason isn't a huge fan of beer, while ChrisMac will happily drink just about any beer (including Stag!) and I consider myself a bit of a beer snob.

I was impressed that Jason was able to single out some beers that he actually enjoyed sampling. He declared his favorite to be Dark Helmet Imperial Shwarzbier which was being offered by the Mississippi Unquenchable Grail Zymurgists. He was also quite fond of the Lindemans Framboise Lambic (Raspberry).

Myself, I was quite fond of O'Hara's Irish Red and Original Sin Hard Granny Smith Apple Cider. I do have to agree with Jason that the Dark Helmet beer was really good and had quite a light, sweet taste for a stout.

I'm not sure which beer ChrisMac enjoyed the most, but, he has never met a beer he didn't like and I never saw him dump out his cup in a fit of disgust.
