Shaun's Recommendations for Seattle Cask Festival

Hi Folks,

Washington Brewer's Guild is hosting Cask Festival tomorrow. One of my favorite events of the year to try out small batch crazy fun stuff that Washington brewers and other regional brewers dream up. Buckle up! Here is my short list of what to try...

My number one rule of festivals is try something that you can't get normally. Since this festival is dominated by specials I am eschewing many of the breadth of styles I generally like and focusing on the specials. By no means does this mean I dislike beers I didn't select. I just don't have the constitution to get through even my short list.
