Stumbled on to this 1966 Stout at Toyota of Dallas yesterday. Pretty cool!

That's really neat. What do they use it for? It's not on the showroom floor like the 40 at Stevinson.

Not sure. Chris King said it was a "barn find". Not sure what the plan is for it.

Hey I think this place has stout on tap. :drink: http://www.twinpeaksrestaurant.com/ look behind you before you look at their FB page https://www.facebook.com/twinpeaksrestaurant :eek:

Not sure how much colder 29 beer is, but I am thinking of checking it out before the meeting. Anyone else want to join? :beer:

Coldest Beer In Town. Indeed.

There is a direct inverse ratio for beer quality.

Using the standard Beer Advocate Overall Score (http://beeradvocate.com/help/index?topic=ratings), the temperature become critical as rating goes down. IOW, the chance a bad beer, say Coors Light at 51, is going to taste like ass at 50F is 0.980, almost 100% certainty. However at 29F the beer only has a 0.569, 57%, chance of this.

Take a decent beer, like the Wynkoop's B3K Schwarz at a fair rating of 80 (it's OK, not great). At 50F this has a 0.625 probability of tasting like ass, almost even with Coors Light at a very cold temp. But at 29F it's a very low 0.363 probability.

A beer like the Trappist Westvleteren, which has been called the best beer in the world at 100, can almost definitely taste fine up to 50F, where its 0.5 probability is almost trivial, forgetting the 29F probability. The better the beer, you'll also notice, the lower the variance from proper pour temp to cold-by-necessity.

Now as to why one would go to Twin Peaks, I suppose the quantity and quality of the beers is really depreciated. Although I'll remind you that life is far too short to drink bad beer and Ein Bierpalast would have to be very good to make it worthwhile...
