Report: Ale Stars Session on Farmhouse Ales

Shandy and Ben Kraus.

Well, it's after midnight and I'm just in the door after the 4th Ale Stars Session, this time on Farmhouse Ales. It was another great turnout and Special Guest, Ben Kraus, travelled all the way from Bridge Road Brewery in northern Victoria to chat about his Saison and Bier de Garde beers. See the slideshow here.

Jamil Zainasheff, who is in town from California for the ANHC over the next few days also came down and said nice things about Ben's Saison. Jamil is the most awarded homebrewer in the world.

Thanks to Shandy, Ben and all who attended (and stuck around afterwards).. The biggest thanks goes to Cloudwine for sponsoring the Ale Stars Sessions. You can get all the beers we tried last night (and many, many more) at their stores.

We hope to see you at the Rogues Ales Session on November 6th and the Ale Stars Christmas Session on wheat beers on Tuesday December 16th.
