WYES Internation Beer Tasting - Beer Lineup!

Hey everyone, for those thinking about going to the WYES International Beer Tasting on June 2nd, or the Private Tasting the night before, the beer lineups for both events have been released!

There is plenty of good stuff on tap... here are a few that I'm looking forward to the most:

At the Private Tasting:
Abita Barrel Aged Abbey Ale
NOLA Hurricane Saison cask-conditioned
Stone Imperial Russian Stout
Tin Roof Black Tin Coffee Porter
Chafunkta Brewing's offerings
All of the Homebrewers!  

At the International Beer Tasting:
NOLA Brewing
Schmaltz Brewing
Lazy Magnolia Southern Hops'pitality
Lazy Magnolia Deep South Pale Ale
Parish Brewing
Tin Roof Brewing
40 Arpent Brewing (first look at this newcomer from St. Bernard Parish)
Chafunkta Brewing
Mobile Brewing (Another new one!)
Gnarly Barley Brewing
and of course... all the Homebrewers!

I imagine I'll spend most of my time drinking the homebrews, just like at Zapp's in Baton Rouge.  There are plenty of worthwhile commercial beers though, so if you want to try a bunch of local and regional beers all in one place, this is where you need to be June 2nd!
