Captain Lawrence Sour’d in September

Small gallery this week but man, this was one of my favorite events of the year. This was Captain Lawrence’s first time taking on an beer festival like this and I can’t stress how well everything was ran. Beer selection was out of this world, the people were amazing, actual brewers from a lot of the breweries involved, plenty of beer to go around. Not to mention little to no lines since there were less than 400 people in attendance. I had a tough time not just hanging out at the Captain Lawrence tent and getting refills on all of the amazing beer they had for us that day. Awesome to see so many people from the Capital Region make the trip down as well, with people from The Bier Abbey, Remarkable Liquids, Craft Beer Guild, and Madison Pour House all in attendance. This was a great, intimate festival and I’m really hoping this comes back next year.

Barrel Select Golden Sour now available at the Captain Lawrence Tasting Room

— GABF Gold Medal Winner Golden Sour is now available at their taproom, along with Silver Medal winner Golden Delicious. This is an awesome beer that fits in well with the end of my rant on this post the other day. Naturally that means I can’t make it down there this weekend. God dammit.
