Mini-Micros: A World Tour of Small Breweries

    * Date May 17, 2011
    * Time 7 p.m.
    * Location National Geographic Building, Washington, D.C.
    * Price NG Member: $75; General Public: $85

Prost! Tip a glass with celebrated brewmaster and author Garrett Oliver as he returns this spring, this time with a lineup of ?small wonders??micro-breweries that produce under a thousand barrels a year. These breweries may not make very much beer, but pack plenty of passion, creativity, and flavor into every drop. Accompanied by a variety of tasty treats.

Co-sponsored by RFD Washington, and presented with assistance from BURP (Brewers United for Real Potables).

$85 for that is highway robbery. And that's coming from a big Garrett Oliver (though not necessarily Brooklyn Brewery) fan.

it's damn expensive, but is it any worse that that "Savor" festival thingy where you can't drink for less than like $140 or $150?

The Belgian Beer Festival at Max's is really fun.  Lots of great beers.  If you've never gone, I would highly recommend it.

For a limited time only, at Trader Joe's for $7.99. Nice price considering a Unibroue four pack normally goes for $9.99 or $10.99. One of the two best breweries in Canada, imo (along with Dieu de Ciel).

Funny, that's the one beer of there's that I've had that I don't care fo. Tasted too much like cider (which I don't care for) to me. Ephemere is not in this particular taster pack.

I have had lots of beer.  Currently not drinking tons of it :)

But, I do enjoy 3 or 4 on the weekend!

Totally understand your thoughts on Ephemere.  I find it refreshing as a starter beer.  I thought the apple taste was pretty subtle.
