I’m visiting the Arlington, VA area this weekend and it just started snowing in the past hour or so. Normally it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, except the NWS has just released an updated forecast of 20-30 inches over the next 30 hours! Some areas are supposed to exceed 30 inches! This should definitely be the largest snowstorm I’ve even been involved with.
In preparation, yesterday I went to the grocery store and of course the beer store! I got your usual suspects but I also hand-picked a 6-pack of well reputed, tasty craft beers. Most of these I’ve never had before, one I had to get again because it’s just that good and out for a limited time. I felt ambitious about this 6 pack and decided I’d grade these brews and write a bit about each as I partake. After all, I don’t think I’m going anywhere anytime soon. I will follow the rating rules of the BeerAdvocate: Appearance, Smell, Taste, Mouthfeel, and Drinkability. Each category scores out of 5, then averaged for the total.
Be sure to check back after the jump throughout the weekend as I pop these bottles. I may have all of them tonight, I may spread it out. Haven’t gotten that far yet. Frump on for the lineup of culprits.
*update* 2/9/10 5:45p.m.– It just started snowing again and we’re supposed to get 10-20 more inches, so I just opened the last one!
