BBC17 started out with a pre-party at the Rumpus RoomStone Brewing was our official beer host for the event.

The Rumpus Room, aside from being a great beer bar, has amazing food. I had just come back from Michigan from a funeral and I was really jonesing for something good to eat. The bartender suggested their special Cuban sandwich (one of my favs). It was spectacular to say the least. Great mustard, perfect pickles, tender pork, excellent bread—all around wonderful sandwich. Now that I had a base for some imbibing, it was time to start working on the special pours Stone had brought for the party.

Just look at that tap list! I managed to make it through two flights of spectacular beer. Barleywines, barreled treats, hoppy surprises galore were poured out with reckless abandon. Such a good chalkboard of choices to delight my palette.

Stone knows how to put a shindig. The Rumpus Room played an excellent host. The Stone crew were not only knowledgeable, but friendly and helpful. It was a lightning round of meeting new people from the conference. All around A+ event.
