It's Beer Thirty!

Today we moved on from tasting wines to tasting beers!  I generally love beer, but some of the ones we tried today were just nasty! Haha.  I'm never a fan of Guiness, but there were some others that I really didn't enjoy... they were generally the darker beers.  Just too bitter and funky tasting for me.  We tried a Hefeweizen, which reminded me of how much I like Hefeweizen, and will make sure to order some next time I'm out :)  In any case, here are some pictures from today's class!

Mr. D's the Man! Haha

From Left to Right: Coors, Pilsner Urquell, Harpoon Hefeweizen UFO, Bass Ale

The Beers We Tried

Again, Mr. D is So Talented with the Stacking of Things!

Lots 'o Beer in the Coors Beverage Laboratory ;-)

How fun! We've been drinking beer lately to pair with some of our winter dishes rather than wine. I do love dark beers actually and we've been exploring a lot of beer from Dogfish.

I love the idea of pairing beers! Pairing wine is great, and I really appreciate the art behind it, but I know pairing beers is less common but still an art form because there are so many different styles and flavors. I've tried a couple different Dogfish beers, and honestly I didn't care for either of them. I think it's just the trap of the really dark beers I can't get past, haha. Bass and New Castle are probably the darkest ones I really enjoy!
