Check out the bonus flight -- should be quite interesting
Plus we will have a bonus Union Jack flight -- this is the bonus round for research and education.  It will be a blind flight of 4 glasses of Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA.  I took a case of Firestone Walker and will treat each 6 pack differently.    We will see how much these factors will affect the beer...
  • One will be perfect shape, stored in a cool dark place
  • One is stored dark, but in my 90+ degree garage
  • One is stored cool, but over exposed to light for an extended time
  • One is going be stored dark, but in and out of the refrigerator repeatedly.
Plus, I thought it would be fun to try
Urban Chestnut Zwickel vs. the German Innstadt Edelsud Zwickel
