That's the one. 2009 edition - reminded me quite a bit of a Bigfoot.

Greal list of DDC goodies still on the slate Sunday, some perhaps never to be seen here again... (but seriously, there must be plans for some DDC on tap here in future... I'm dying to try the Corné du Diable draught, since USA-style micros thrive in a Cask presentation, so watch for the Cask Days.)

Nice DDC launch Senor Morana!

I absolutely loved the event, even if I did only get there just after midnight! I tried to go at about 10, but they were full. So we headed to a nearby pub and then went back later. In the little over an hour that I was there before last call, I managed to sample some of everything (and even have two of the Corne de Diable).

The Corne de Diable and the Peche Mortel (cask) were the standouts for me, but I really enjoyed all of them. The Corne de Diable is the best Canadian IPA I've ever tried. As a coffee fanatic, the Peche Mortel was absolutely awesome, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that didn't like coffee. I wish I didn't have to drink so fast, but those were the sacrifices that were required.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to this, but I am planning on going over tonight (Monday) for a pint or two. Will *any* of these beers still be available you think?

I think all beer were available yesterday, so perhaps there is some left today as well?

I think the casks were done by the end of the night. For some reason my memory is a little hazy...

It was a great event and I found the DDC brewers extremenly personable and friendly. You can tell they love what they do. My fav was probably the Aphrodisique. Wish I could've stayed longer but I might have had too much wine beforehand.

I had ordered the Peche Mortel on cask right at last call, so they weren't out of it then.

And I know someone who had the other cask beer yesterday (Sunday).

While I wish I could have attended, I am thrilled that this event went so well for Ralph and the gang at Volo - everyone I know who went had a great time.

I guess I was aiming a little too high with my High Fidelity guess... :)
