Beer List for 10/17

What a great time we had and enjoyed all six single malts (along with two others as chasers, along with 7 brews which are listed below.  Only having a dram of whisky, with not much more of each beer to keep (as best we can) our palates from getting too dead, we enjoyed the tastings over a 6 hour period, along with some great finger food.
