October beer tasting!

Craft Beers.  There's so many of them.  Do you know the six steps to tasting craft beer? 

1.  Aesthetics - look at it

2.  SRM - Standard Reference Method             2 - 45  light to dark

3.  Carbonation - foam - changes taste

4.  Legs on glass - more alcohol/more legs

5.  Bloodhourd technigue - 3 quick sniffs or one long sniff

Search for yeast/hops/malt in aromas

6.  Mouthfeel - tougue - silky/smooth/heavy/dry

Let's find some unique/out of the ordinary beers to taste.  Either a 4 or 6 pack.  I noticed at Bevmo there are several I've never heard between $8 - $10.  We can do the big bottles at another tasting. 

Please bring a yummy dish that is BAD for you and goes with Beer.

I would prefer guests to leave their shoes by the door.  I also have a dog that will be making her way around.  I look forward to a joyful event.

Address  and phone number will be sent 24 hours before the event.  Please be respectful and change your rsvp in a timely manner if things come up.

A week before the event I'll be asking you to reconfirm your spot

    October 20, 2013

    • Sandy

      Sounds like some are ordering pizza from different places and others are bringing something to accompany it.

  • Michael

    Even though we're ordering pizza it couldn't hurt to bring a few munchies.

    October 20, 2013

    • Sandy

      It would be nice to have something more than pizza. I agree

      October 20, 2013

  • Sandy

    Got my salty dog raspberry flavored beer. Plan to get a medium pizza from Pizza Hut

    October 20, 2013

  • Michael

  • Juliann

    I'm in! Is anyone interested in "Pizza & Beer"? What do you think about ordering pizza instead of bringing a food item?

    Here's a tip for the budget-conscious: Vendome Toluca Lake is having a beer sale to go with their tasting this weekend. If you do the tasting ($10 for 15 pours), 11 of the 15 beers will be on sale for 50% off!

    I bought my beer...
    Red Trolley Ale is a medium-bodied beer with heavyweight malts. We brew it with a half ton of caramelized malts for a rich copper color and toffee flavor. After adding the perfect mix of hops for balance, we warm ferment the beer to bring out a hint of dried raisins and currants. The complexity of flavors makes Red Trolley Ale a hearty and truly enjoyable beer.

    Back in the day, we brewed Red Trolley Ale as our first holiday beer. In the spirit of the season, we made like Santa in a fat suit and stuffed it full of caramel malts. So many folks got on board that we decided to brew it year round. Years later, Red Trolley Ale remains the perfect beer to make any occasion festive.

    My plan: I'm going to bring a ten pack! 2 bottles each of 5 different brands of pumpkin-flavored beer (maybe more if I find them!), and we'll have a "pumpkin off!"

    October 15, 2013

    • Laura

      I was thinking of doing something similar. Is there a good beer market around here that lets you mix & match? (happy bday, btw! ;) )

      Hey, you can't do pumpkin! I call dibs! And I think virtually any store will let you buy single bottles; you don't always have to buy six packs
