This Friday was the fist Firkin Friday that has featured Fat Head’s own beers. It was a quite night for a Friday, but the beer was delicious as usual. On the firkin was the gold medal winning Headhunter IPA. This beer is a real treat and held up very well in the firkin format. I highly recommend trying this beer.

We had a small group this week. I guess the nice weather and holiday weekend contributed. Personally, I see no reason why that should interfere with delicious beer drinking! Four of us made it to the bar and we had four beers to taste. Overall a good selection. The Double Dread and the Moloko Milk Stout stood out as the best of the bunch today.

In other news: Fat Heads continues to do well with their own beers at local competitions. The Güdenhoppy Pilsner won gold at the Cleveland Oktoberfest. Once again going up against well established breweries such as Great Lakes and Gordon Biersh, Fat Head’s brewery continues to impress the judges. That makes for two gold medals in as many competitions. Congrats!
