3 Months, 10 Beers, 1 Goal
Last week I had a wonderful tasting of my Homebrew at Elizabeth Street Brewery, It was a small and very personal tasting because of the limited amount of beer I could afford to ship. At the Tasting hosted by Richard Brewer-Hay, proprietor of Elizabeth Street Brewery were about 15 local craft beer lovers and supporters of Elizabeth Street Brewery, including Shaun O’Sullivan, owner of 21st Amendment. After I introduced my wife, Dani, to the crowd, she announced “… and I hate Beer”. If you know me and my wife, it actually made me smile, because she is my biggest fan.
Lets just say that quieted the crowd. Everyone looked shocked and rightfully so. A guy like me, a huge craftbeer advocate, long time homebrewer, and big time connoisseur of all things alcoholic you’d think my significant other would be right there with me? Well, actually she is. She bought me my first homebrewing kit, has encouraged and supported my obsession with beer and brewing. But the one thing, she generally doesn’t like the taste of beer. We have found a couple beers that she liked the smell and others she has liked the taste. A couple that she has enjoyed were Dogfish Head 120min IPA and 21st Admendment’s Monks Blood.
A couple days after the tasting at dinner, Dani said, “Lets try to find some beers I like and we can document the journey on Simply Beer.” That sounded like an excellent idea to me! So, we are on a quest to find Dani 10 beers she likes over the next 3 months.
We’d love to hear your suggestions!
