If you read my British Beer Bottles post, you would know that I have been cleaning out my room. While in that post I disposed of several bottles that I had never even sampled, this time around I have managed to get rid of several bottles that I did personally consume, some of them even for this blog.
You’re gonna love this blog post!
This past Wednesday at UVic I attended Beerology, hosted by the Scientific Method, and held in the Vertigo room of the SUB. This was not a new event, for I seem to remember seeing posters last year, but this was the first time that I had ever attended! There were six local breweries in attendance, one cidery from up island, one brewery from Vancouver, and one promotional booth for the second edition of Joe Wiebe’s Craft Beer Revolution. They all had about three or four creations for sampling, and owing to the social nature of my attendance, and the relatively small for tasting notes 4oz glasses, I opted to drink rather than think too much at the event. Despite my lack of tasting notes, I did keep a list of all that I tried, and some general observations were made.
Date a boy who drinks. Date a boy who spends his money on fine alcohol instead of cars, who decorates his house with empty bottles instead of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit posters. Date a boy who has a list of beers he has tried, and a list of beers he aspires to try.
Find a boy who drinks. Not one who drinks ten Budweiser every Friday night, but one who tries a new beer every time he visits the craft beer section of the specialty liquor store. He’s the one who spends half an hour browsing in the liquor store, only to buy one beer. You see that weird guy asking for his whisky neat, and then having to explain to the sports bar waitress what that means? He’s the one you want. He can’t resist analysing the nose of the cheap whisky he just ordered.
