Andrew VU '04: I've got to be honest: as a teen-aged girl pretending to be a bearded man in his 30s, I know a lot about craft beer. For one, I lived next door to a home brewer for six years (he now brews professionally for St. Arnold's Brewing Company in Houston, TX). As such, drinking weapons grade horse poison (see our previous King Can Taste Tests) was anathema to me, and I'm relatively sure one of my kidneys no longer works. No matter - I've got another.
As VandyTigerPhD, Christian D'Andrea, Vandy Import, and Dinard'oh are all goers (nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more), I proposed a classier way to imbibe and describe high alcohol content beers.
And so the First Annual Delicious High ABV Taste Test That We Actually Want To Do And Will Probably Not Kill Us was born. I could go looking for the best beers out there, scouring every store within driving distance, seeking out great treasures of hops and grain... but, in all honesty, I do that at least once a week already, so let's just go with what's in my fridge. Without further ado...
The Drink: Green Flash Green Bullet Triple India Pale Ale (New Zealand Dry-Hopped)
