When last we left you in A DIY Beer Dinner – Part I, Josh was telling an elaborate and completely BS story about the creation of Anderson Valley Blood Orange Goze and we were enjoying ourselves thoroughly after the first three amazing pairings. The kitchen was smelling amazing as Thanh and John were pulling the savory fourth course out of the oven. While we continued to swear and tell inappropriate stories, it was time for:
“I mean, I’m a grown man, and I still cry at the end of Toy Story 3, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. And it ended just right. Why would they make a fourth? I don’t know if I can emotionally make it through that.”
“The way they print the letter ‘D’ totally looks like a vagina. And then they printed it on pink paper. Come on.”
“He didn’t want that sippy cup, he wanted the other sippy cup that was downstairs in the kitchen, in dishwater… I”m like dude, drink your water. Go to sleep. We are not having a power struggle.”
That’s what he said. Three beers into a tasting at Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Joint in Downtown Harrisonburg, the Specialty Beer representative announced to a full house that the South American Palo Santo tree was some “serious wood.” And that was what the whole night was about: beer + wood = amazing flavor.
