It was a good time. Friday, May 9th saw the lonliest Monk show up at Branched Oak Farm to pour some beers for the Nebraska Slowfood group. Three different versions of Brothers’ Cup were on offer (including one of mixed fermentation with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus), as well as Arctic Storm, Schwarzbier, and (straight from the lagering tank) some of the Smoked Bock. This is the first time in creation that nearly every Modern Monks brewed beer was on offer in one location.
Thanks to Krista and Doug of Branched Oak Farm for hosting the event at their farm and providing us with a great variety of cheeses, Todd and Susan from Wise Oven Bakery for baking the sour-dough bread (which included Arctic Storm in the mix) and designing the tasting menu, Maggie of MaGGiE’s Vegetarian Restaurant for organizing and providing glassware (and also the pictures posted here!), and the band Trigger Town for providing some great music!
A couple more pictures from the beer and cheese event. Thanks Maggie!
