There's less than a month left to go for the second edition of Barcelona Beer Festival, to which I had the chance, and the pleasure, to make a small contribution.
The organisers had asked me, already for last year's edition, to help them get Czech beers. It was too close to the date and I wasn't able to arrange anything with anyone. This year, we had more time and already in summer I spoke with Honza Šuráň, Chairman of the Czech Microbrewers' Association, and Milan Starec, one of the owners of Černokostelecký Pivovar, and I put them in contact with Miker Ruis, one of the people behind the event, so they could agree on whatever that needed to be agreed on.
The result is this list of beer:
- Imperial Pilsner and IPA, from Břevnovský Klášterní Pivovar
- Kávove y banánové pivo, from Pivovarský Dům
- Catfish Sumeček, Samuraj IPA, Quarterback and Gypsy Porter, from Pivovar Kocour
So, I hope that those fortunate enough to assist will have a great time.
There seem to be far too many IPAs and other non-Czech beers on that list.ReplyDelete
Doesn't anyone like a well made Bohemian lager nowadays?
To be honest, if the choice had been up to me, I would have taken more proper Czech Lagers, as I've said, I believe Benediktin 12 should have been included. If I remember correctly, though, the organisers were never too keen on them...Delete
At least the lagers that do go are really good.
