Not to be confused with the IRB. I got to be the featured homebrewer at the ILB Beer Club tasting, which was held at the Rumpus Room. I got to go in the cooler and took this apparently very excited selfie with teh beerz.
The theme was sort of loosely gathered around beers that aren't "beer," and so I brought some cider, which has a lot of honey in it, making it technically a cyser. There's a name for everything. Beer number two was my Pumpkin Spice Ale, a basic American Brown style with spices. Finally there was the Ginger Beer, which was a big hit. Probably more because no one had ever had anything that before then whether it is objectively "good." Fine... it's pretty good.
