Wow. This all sounds so good! I'm incredibly jealous. I'm glad you had such a good time. I've always wanted to go to Hugo's and Eventide. Now I want to check out Novare Res Bier too. I know the beer thread people think Pliny is a has-been beer, and maybe I'm too old school with the beer I like, but I hope you do try it, even if you don't like it.
