On this glorious day, we decided to bring together some friends and take a little international beer challenge. Let us explain our thoughts to you.
My job was to man the three cameras and pour the beer. It wasn't as easy as it may seem. Note to self: Tell people which camera to look at. Also, the wind was howling which was a lovely background noise.
We had to head to another state to actually find all of the international beer, but we managed to come up with 13 beers from different countries: Mexico, France, Canada, Czech Republic, Thailand, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Belgium, China, Italy, Spain, and England.
I would give each person a Dixie cup of beer (because we are classy like that), and they would taste it and give an opinion. My favorite reaction was to the beer that nobody liked. Seriously. Nobody.
I would say that the tasting was a success. Everyone seemed to have a good enough time. Tornadoes be damned. I would definitely recommend organizing a tasting of your own. Get out of your comfort zone and experience what more of the world has to offer.
We have been friends for more years than we haven't. Perhaps because of that or simply because we both have jobs/family that seem to encourage escape, we often bond over an ounce or so of liquid magic. Through these experiences, we have discovered the joys that can come with a well-crafted cocktail, quality beer, and excellent wine. It's about quality for us, and we want to share that with you.
