While we allow radlers and blends like that, when the alcohol is that dominant (50% Margaritas - that’s a lot of tequila), it really kinda disqualifies itself.

We allowed Tonic the Hedgehog.. as I don’t think there was nearly as much (if any) actual gin in the blend. But, after some discussion, I think we’ll just leave this as a no-go.

Was a really nice drink though.. pretty dangerous that late in the day as well.


Between a couple of pours of that and King Henry, I went from 0 to 60 pretty damn quick

I finally got to try that one. A friend’s rating of that beer is how I first heard of the Livery a couple years back. Best of all it was actually good.

Mmmhmmm, and a RB top 50 if you’re into that kind of thing.

So that is the base for 1616 huh? Makes me excited to see what they have lined up for 1515.

These two beers were different and will be separated in the ratebeer database accordingly. According to Central Waters Brewing Company...

1) The Experimental Stout was a test recipe for Central Waters 1616 imperial stout and molasses was used to prime the firkin. Only one firkin was made.

2) The Brown Sugar/Molasses version that was available during the Great Taste of the Midwest 2012 was Central Waters Satin Solstice with a firkin primed with brown sugar and molasses.
