Now, on to the important things...haha
Sadly, I guess Thirsty Thursday isn't a hop this week and who knows if it will be again :( But I still decided to throw the button up and talk about a great get together that we threw this past weekend!
Steve and I are part of a local beer lovers club-type-thing, and last weekend we hosted what we call a "Bring & Share Gathering". Basically, everyone who comes is required to bring one food item/dish to share, as well as either a six pack or a growler of his or her favorite beer. Now, for couples we only required one food item or dish, but they still had to bring two six packs and/or growlers...because isn't running out of beer at a party way worse than running out of food?
The great thing about a get together like this - especially when it's a bunch of true blue beer lovers - is that you get to try a bunch of new beers that you may not have noticed otherwise. For instance, I always said I wasn't big on Amber Ales, but at the end of the night I gave in and tasted a Tap Room No. 21 "Moe's Backroom Amber Ale"...and was very pleasantly surprised!
So if you're looking for an idea for a get together, I highly suggest hosting a Bring & Share! This was our second time doing it - 2nd Annual, if you will - and we will be hosting again next year!
