Top of the Hops Beerfest

So last night was the Top of the Hops Beerfest here in Biloxi. I was on a mission to have a 2 ounce shot from all 150 beers. I have to admit that after about a dozen of these shots I realized it may be harder than initially anticipated. The variety of types made it tough. Plus I only had 4 hours to do it in. Given the amount of shots to do and the amount of people walking around it was mathematically impossible to have them all. So here's the list of what I managed to get:


Abita Brewing Company-Turbodog
Abita Brewing Company-Restoration
Anchor Brewing-Anchor Steam
Anheuser-Busch-Budweiser American Ale

Those are the 45 I tasted in about 2 hours. If there was less of a crowd I could have gotten through much more of the list. Many of what I got to taste were delicious and new. Tasting new beers is an excellent way to spend an evening.
