Speaking of tasty, so glad I popped by the 18 Reasons Seasonal Beer Tasting Monday night. I’d been really awkward at an event earlier in the night, but I find beer tastings to be “my people.” Talked to a lot of the sample folks about Milwaukee too. Yay. Sampled Anchor‘s Christmas Ale, Lucky Hand (brand new) Cali Common and the (very, VERY good! – contrary to Beer Advocate) Black Lager, Almanac‘s Farmhouse Pale (plum-infused and WELL worth the praise), and Speakeasy‘s Butchertown Black Ale and Payback Porter. I’ve been meaning to go to one of these events for quite awhile, so really glad I did and will make room on the calendar for them in 2012.
