My sister drove up from California, and instead of going out I decided to do up “The Big Board”. I had three cheeses – Crucolo, D’Affinois and St. Agur – plus bourbon chicken liver mousse from Chop, some smoked duck, garlic cured olives, some homemade pickled carrots and beets and a baguette.

The beer list for this evening was a bit extensive… Gose from pFriem, Petit Azacca from De Garde, Colorado Wild Sage Mountain Saison (made with wild white sage) from Crooked Stave and Peach Panache (a saison aged with white peaches in a vermouth barrel) from Heathen. With dessert, we had a Rum Barrel Cavatica Stout from Fort George and London Balling (a bourbon barrel aged barelywine) from Against the Grain.
