GABS 2013 Drinking Order

Posted by on May 8, 2013

With GABS 2013 just around the corner its time to try and put together a drinking order list.

This year they are mixing it up… a lot, rather then 4 bars serving all the beers, they have split it up into 6 sections, and the bit I think is a bit silly… each section had about 16 beers.

Now why didn’t they use some common sense and aim for multiples of 5? Each paddle is 5, having a round number makes sense.

I’m on the fence on if this approach is going to be better then last year, but the good thing is the guys were open to change the procedure on the fly if something just wasn’t working, so all going well this idea of theirs pays off.

It does make producing a drinking order a hell of a lot harder.

The approach I have taken, for now anyway, is to put each section in to drinking order. And for now, go section by section.. Or at least, 2 paddles at once from each section as I go.. I am doing 3 sessions so should have plenty of time to try them all.

You can find the official guide here

On to the drinking order… And this may change as I review it, but for now……
