Today I took three of our beers to the Great Taste of the Midwest, the best brewer's festival in the mid-west. The Fun Hunters booth was a great success and a lot of the beer lovers complimented us on our Wheat beer and Oatmeal Stout. Next to us, the guys from the AEppelTreow Winery were serving up some tasty Cider, which reminded me of a drink I read about called a "Smoothie". A Smoothie is a mixture of Cider with a Stout beer. Since we brought our Oatmeal Stout with us, I was eager to try this mixture. It was surprisingly good and I encouraged a lot of the Stout drinkers who visited us to try it. I encourage you to try it, even if you don't like Stout beers, or Ciders!
Many thanks go out to Pike, Natalie, and Matt for helping me work the festival. A thank you also goes to Kurt and Charles and the guys from the AEppelTreow Winery for sharing so much of their great Cider with me and those that visited us for Oatmeal Stout!
