Washington Beer Open House 2011

On February 26th, the Washington Beer Commission held an open house at breweries across the state. It is essentially the Washington version of Zwickelmania. The only location in Spokane participating was C.I. Shenanigan's. Shenanigan's is affiliated with The Ram and mostly brews recipes from their brewery. The brewmaster at Shenanigan's gets to experiment with some of his own recipes as well. We got to taste a handfull of beers from the zwickel (what is a zwickel?) while we were there.

The Beers:

Dark Czar Russian Imperial Stout
Unnamed Belgian Golden Ale
Big Red IPA*
Ole St. Mick's Irish Stout*

*Ram recipe
