Beaver Meadows Beer Gathering

A hearty thanks to Jason (BA’s Clockwork Orange) for a great beer tasting in his backyard – the crazy storms added to the excitement, but the beer collection was the highlight of the night.

Amazingly, our home breathalyzer kit registered me at .04, so the little tasting glasses, loads of great food (oh…Bob’s Rauch Beer Chili…mmmm!!! (to be specific, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen) must have done the trick in keeping me sober.   The chili and the grilled Bratwurst soaked in who-knows-what beer were the main dishes, and there were tons of little snacky things that were all so very good.

Thank you to Jason and friends for putting on a great party.  The lightshow was especially memorable.  It was just what we needed this weekend.  And thanks to Tim for the photos!
