Both were great!
We followed them up with some other beers: a Telegraph Reserve Wheat -- which while it billed itself as a "Berliner Weisse" actually tasted more like the delicious "Janer Weisse" I had from Jana a year or so back. A true, straight Berliner Weisse to me tastes like sour water -- there is really nothing there but sour -- not body, not hops. No wonder they add syrup. The Janer Weisse was nicely sour but had enough body to know you were drinking a beer and that's how I'd describe this beer. That may sound like faint praise, but its not -- that beer from Jena was one of the best I've had in a long time.
Luis had a Midnight Sessions Black Lager from Port Brewing (a/k/a Pizza Port) that seemed to be very good, but I really need to drink it before drinking a Strong Belgian and an Imperial Stoit (i.e. my taste buds where in "strong beer" mode).
As we were finishing up we realized there there another beer on tap -- Iron Springs "Casey Jones IPA" from Faifax, California. So we ordered one for "the table" and it turns out that was enough. It was very hoppy but it had a harsh finish -- the first sip was as good as it got.
While I was laboriously entering the original post with my iPhone, Luis grabbed my camera and took a picture of me "iPhone Blogging," I guess this is an example of second order blogging, (e.g. "Metablogging") but my head hurts to much thinking about this...
