After my birthday, I had a bit of a change in palette. I began enjoying beers and began to dislike mixed drinks. Over the summer, I discovered some amazing micro brews native to the Northwest (The Ram’s Buttface Amber Ale, Mac and Jack’s, Drop Top, and Alaskan Amber to name a few).
Unfortunately, I go to school in Coors Country and so I’m “stuck” with Blue Moon, Killians, and the wonderful selection from New Belgium Brewery (not a Coors product, but still native to Colorado).
However, the Great American Beer Festival is upon us here in Colorado and I will be joining my fellow twenty-one and over comrades in enjoying the fine brews of 1884 beers prepared by over 400 breweries from around the nation.
I’ll be going this Thursday (the 11th) with Mines (yes, our school sold tickets and is chartering a bus to the GABF). You’re welcome to join us if you’ll be in town, just give me a ring on the telly.
I hope to have a report on some great new beers when I return. Stay Tuned!
