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.”
If you couldn’t tell from my Oktoberfest post, I love fall, and fall beers. Especially pumpkin beers (true confession: I actually love just about anything pumpkin). Every year, in early September, I head to my favorite beer shops to pick up a season’s worth of pumpkin beer. I usually grab some of my favorites, and check out new ones to try. The owner of my tried and true beer store recommended Schlafly to me, saying it was his favorite. I was a little dubious, as his second favorite is one I’m not a fan of. But I decided to give it a try, and I am very happy I did. This is the first Schlafly beer I’ve tried, and I’ll definitely be looking for additional styles.
