I’m back-dating the time stamp on this post because I should have gotten it out ages ago (I’m just working too hard to post these days!)
Friday, December 1 was First Firkin Friday at Selin’s Grove Brewing Company. I took the afternoon off from work to spend time with our friends and visit the pub. I warmed up by drinking a pint of Organic Baltic Porter while playing a heated game of Chutes & Ladders with Ethan and Sydney (the traditional board game, not the drinking version.)
At 4 PM, Heather tapped the single firkin of Winter IPA, and in 95 minutes, that tasty brew was gone! I understand it was crafted with Amarillo hops, which is probably why I was so fanatical about it. It really was a beautiful beer.
We have photos – unfortunately on someone else’s camera – which I hope to post soon, and I was thrilled that my dad could join all of us. We all really enjoyed this terrific once-in-a-lifetime beer, and I slept all the way home after two big beers… Now we’re looking forward to the 10th anniversary celebration on December 21!
