Is there another TG event at Dexter’s this year?


At the KBBS release both Clark and Mike told me they were going to be at Dexter’s. Plus its on the calendar on their website.

Confirmed this with Marc. Official announcement coming soon, but they will have "plenty of sour and wood aged beers".

Do these events get thrown together last minute or what? I found a list of events from 2011 and started visiting websites for every place offered. Not one of them (so far) mentions anything in their events pages.


Host locations don’t rarely promote or advertise the parties on their websites. Sometime on FB. Its mostly the Breweries who promote it.

And often times you don’t get the information until the two blogs and the MHTG details them a week or so before.

Taplists for anything are a rarity and usually a last minute thing.

I doubt it. If anything showed up, it would be a very small amount of young lambic.

Spoke with Chad on Tuesday. They’re looking at 10-12 taps, including another 1/6 of Mornin’ Delight.

Does some of the stuff last until Saturday night or Sunday? Not sure I’ll be around on Friday.

Dexter’s will be a madhouse for sure!

Yeah, we went for lunch last year.

There were no special things last year.. aside from some bottles of Assassin they poured out later on.

The thing is, if they wait to tap Mornin’ Delight (and from what I understand.. they have very little left.. I’d be more expecting to see it at the Fest and not Dexters).. it’ll be late.. but you’ll also be away from the downtown area.

I’m thinking lunch again, myself. Was real chill.
