Beer Tasting

So many beers in the world, so little time.

During a recent visit with friends I did something that was a lot of fun. We had a beer tasting. I know most people think of wine as the alcohol to learn more about, but the world of beer is also large and delicious. It was a fairly easy thing to do. All I did was find a store with a good selection of high-end beers; you know $4-15 a bottle. I decided to stick with variations on darker beers for this tasting but really the sky is the limit. What makes it really fun is picking either types or brands of beer other people may not have tried. When you do the tasting it is important to have a clean glass for each type of beer. When pouring try to give each person enough to taste the beer, but you don’t have to finish each bottle during the tasting. After everyone has tried them, all the remaining beer will easily vanish. A good tasting flight is around three to seven beers depending on the strength of the beer and the number of people. Make sure to begin with beer that is lighter and finish with the heavier or fruit flavored variations.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
