FYI, to the folks who were there. . . The beer we had was the "Brewerís Blend" of BA Speedway Stout, meaning that it was barrel-aged and then a portion of straight Speedway was blended back in, to taste. And then it was cask-conditioned. And then we drank it. And then we beergasmed.

Hereís the listing:

Iíd give íer a 4.5-4.6, something like an 8/5/9/5/18-19.

And oh yeah, by the way. . . I tried a "Randal 2.0"-type experiment of adding some fresh ground Panama Esmeralda Geisha coffee to a pour of the Speedway cask, then letting it cold-steep for about 10 minutes before drinking.



FUCKEN. INSANE.



Highly recommended. It makes for an expensive lilí cup oí joe/snifter of beer, but it was goddamn delicious. Gonna try again this weekend with a bottle of "regular" Speedway Stout.

good god that beer was divine. stouts like speedway just beg for the creaminess given by natural carbonation.

Still available at Beacwhood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach as of closing time last night. Seriously contemplating heading down there for a pour or few.... Damn the hour+ drive each way.

We had the BA Blend at the Firestone Int BF in June and it was great.

The one on the bus was yet another tick altogether. Brewers Blend with vietnamese coffee. Hopefully you got that one at least.

dude it *said* BA speedway, and on CASK motherfucka, isnít that enticing enough to make you grab a glass?

Iíll try almost anything on cask, there are times the texture is so astoundingly better than CO2 tap and bottle that itís worth forgetting the rates for a sec for the chance to try what may be an amazing version of a beer youíve had multiple times in the past.
