This last Valentine’s Day kicked off the 2009 Barleywine Festival at the Toronado. Great times, especially when my wife tells me it’s what she wants to do for Valentine’s day 😉

Here’s a list of what we sampled:

Brewery Beer Name Origin ABV IBU Note
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Chico, CA 9.6% 90
Bear Republic Old Scoutters 2008 Healdsburg, CA 11.0%
Big Sky Old Bluehair Missoula, MT 8.8% 75
Seabright Old Homicide Santa Cruz, CA ?
Magnolia Old Thunderpussy 2009 San Francisco, CA ?
Marin Old Dipsea 2009 Larkspur, CA ?
Midnight Sun Arctic Devil Anchorage, AK ?

I know there was more we tasted, I just can’t remember. Oh, and a couple of iPhone photos:
