Now it’s getting to the really tough matchups…I’m going to be sad to see any of these beers go home, but let’s see who lasts to the next round.
Winner: Westmalle Trappist Tripel
Comments: This was a ridiculously hard decision. I loved the London Porter, but the Belgian-y goodness edged it out by a hair.
Winner: Terrapin Reunion Beer 2011
Comments: Upset alert. I loved the Terrapin beer and I knew this was going to win because I would pull that out of the fridge before the Founders offering. But, Red’s Rye was a fantastic brew.
Comments: I love Belgian IPAs like no one else, but I have a few that I could put in the category of Bitter Monk. The Stone Black IPA stood alone as the best of the style that I’ve ever had and was incredibly enjoyable.
Winner: Avery Out of Bounds Stout
Comments: This was another close one. I liked the Avery brew a hair more than the Green Flash one, so it edged out the win.
