Boak & Bailey have invited other bloggers to “go long” on Saturday, and despite two months lead time what I planned to post is not close to done. So, sigh, I’ll haul a print article from the archives Saturday. It focuses on 1995. Thus a quiz about beer events from that year to set the mood.
1) On June 13, 1995 the first draft beer from a Belgian specialty brewer was poured in the U.S. Where did this happen and what was the beer?
2) In 1995 this brewer took his first professional brewing job at Grizzly Peak Brewing Michigan. Who was the brewer and what brewery did he later found?
3) What beer took the gold medal as a “strong ale,” finishing ahead of Bourbon County Stout at GABF in 1995, and what was the story behind its name?
4) On June 30, 1994 this brewer quit is job at Otter Creek Brewing in Vermont. One year later he sold the first keg at his new brewery. Who was he and what’s the brewery?
5)This was the largest draft-only brewery in the Western Hemisphere in 1995, a claim it had to give up when it began bottling. What was the brewery and where is it located?
