Interesting use of Randall at the Blind Tiger

There is a really cool event at the Blind Tiger, NYC, this evening. They are serving Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA through six different Randalls. What is interesting is that it is not just hops in the Randalls this time. Instead they are going to serve the beer through a lot of different things that'll lend flavour to the beers.

Here's the list:

Simple Thai: lemongrass
Mint Julep: mint & bourbon balls
Summer Fresco: melon & assorted fruits
Northern Winter: pine & spruce
Italian Seasoning: pine nuts & dried oregano
Hoppy Giant: warrior & columbus hops

I wish I could be there, but as its on the other side of the pond its going to be difficult for me to get there in time. I'll have to try something like this myself sometime.
