Anyway, I walked into their tiny little tasting room last night, and asked the guys behind the counter if I could try some of their beers.
"What kind of beer do you like to drink?"If you know me at all, you probably can guess basically what my answer was.
Turns out that "pretty much everything" is what they had, so that was good."Pretty much everything".
This is sort of an odd little brewery in that they hand bottle all their beer. They have no kegs. Still, the nice brewer kept popping open bottles to pour me tiny little samples. All of them were great. At some point, I'll do a proper blog post on this cool little brewery.
I could not stay long, and on my way home, it struck me .... what a stupid question the brewer had asked me.
"What kind of beer do you like to drink?"Ummmmm ....
I thought to myself that a much better, more clever answer would have been:
"Yes."Of course, it is not really a stupid question. He didn't know me at all, and those of us who generally have lots of different kinds of beer on hand ask it a lot. He had so many beers, and he was only trying to help me narrow down what to try. Honestly, I wish I had time to try them all, but I didn't.
But really, for the Promiscuous drinker that I am, it is much faster to say what kind of beers I don't like to drink.
"Those absolutely awful mass-produced low-carb beers."Last night, I sampled a Saison, a Helles, a Hoppy Pre-Prohibition Style Lager, a Dry Stout, a Chocolate Pumpkin Lager.
I enjoyed drinking them all.
When I got home, I had a White IPA, an American IPA, and an Imperial Stout.
Yum. Yum. Yum.
I have a Blue Berry wheat on-tap in my basement.
I just rattled off 9 completely different styles of beer I've had over a couple day period, and I don't like any of them more than any of the others.
I've brewed almost every style category of the BJCP, and I've enjoyed drinking them all.
Of course, there are styles that I tend not to like as much as others, and certainly their are beers I don't like.
But really, "pretty much everything" is the type of beer I like to drink.
