The Liver is Evil…It Must Be Punished – Brouwer’s Hard Liver Barleywine Fest

March 15th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Events

The liver is evil. It must be punished.

I hope you aren’t hung over, because when I looked at this monster list of beers for the upcoming Hard Liver Barleywine Fest at Brouwer’s Cafe on Saturday, March 20, it made my stomach churn just a little. You might get a hangover just thinking about what you’d like to sample from this list. These high ABV brews will be available in 3oz, 6oz, and 12oz pours. Doors open at 11am and you should expect the place to fill up quickly. If you are cool with missing out on some of the more popular and rare beers, then I’d highly suggesting coming by later in the evening when things have calmed down a bit, or even on Sunday when many barleywines will still be available.

There may be some special additions to this list, but this should be enough to help you plan your attack for the day.
