Tasty beer!

At game last night I actually had a beer I’d seek out again (courtesy of Steve): Wailua. It was still bitter, but — if this makes any sense — the bitterness actually had taste.

I hadn’t completely closed the door on beer, but my expectations were pretty low after few types I’d tried.

    Don’t give up on beer yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not only are there literally thousands of good ones (Once a few of mine are “finished” and mellowed out, I’ll bring `em over) — there are exotics like:

    Beer “Cocktails”…one of my favorites being a “Lava Lamp” รขโ‚ฌโ€œ Equal parts Harp Lager and Guinness Stout, with a splash of Lindemans Framboise (Raspberry) Lambic

    I once had the opportunity to try apricot beer. I like beer. I like apricots. But apricot beer was one of the most abhorrent substance I ever tasted.

    My current favorite is Fat Tire.

    I love the icon my site generated for you. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’ll have to pick up some Fat Tire. The grocery store I’ve been to in my new area doesn’t have the widest selection of beer (no Wailua, for instance), so I may have to shop around a bit.

    lissa — Total Wine Carries it. One thing with Fat Tire is as a non “beer person” it may have too much of that “hint-o-hops” for ya — for the Apricot, the brand Pyramid is a lot lighter.

    Actually — had ANOTHER convert last week — someone who ADAMANTLY hates beer!!! (hated….rather) –>

    It’s the Blueberry Beer they sell at Trader Joes. Kennebunkport is the brand. It is friggin’ excpetional ๐Ÿ™‚

    *dusts off hands* — my work here is done ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think my grocery bill this week will be expensive. When y’all come over for game on Tuesday, I may have a selection of fruity beers. ๐Ÿ™‚
