Mikkeller / Three Floyds Risgoop Beer Giveaway

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING!

Congratulations to twinkienic of Between Snacks for winning a beautiful bottle of Mikkeller Risgoop! It was a fun contest, I might do it again! 😉


To celebrate the launch of this blog, I’m giving away a bottle of semi-sorta-not-really-rareish Mikkeller / Three Floyds Risgoop (2012), a barleywine that uses rice! I haven’t even tried this one, but it would make me so happy to share it with one lucky beer geek. Read the RateBeer and BeerAdvocate reviews if you want to learn more about this beer. I bought this during my last trip to Alberta, from the great Sherbrooke Liquor Store in Edmonton. Now you can enjoy it! Drink it now, cellar it, or gift it to a special someone.

If you’re every wondering what food trucks will be at Brassneck, following Brassneck’s twitter feed is a must, as is keeping an eye on Street Food App’s Brassneck listing.

You’re a dirty burger: Upstairs at Campagnolo

Inspired by this thread on Chowhound, I had to check out the reincarnated Refuel Dirty Burger at Upstairs at Campagnolo, the newly-opened upstairs speakeasy/lounge/bar next to Campagnolo on Main St. I never got to try the original Refuel burger…so with no point of comparison, does the Dirty Burger at Upstairs taste good?
