Now that summer is almost over, I’ve been reminiscing on one of my favorite summer traditions. I love, more than anything, to load a cooler up with a huge variety of beers and play a sort of “brewery Russian roulette” when we get to our party destination. Never knowing what might come out of that cooler makes beer taste better in my opinion. Also, I’m absolutely famous for purchasing beer (and wine, for that matter) solely based on how cool the label looks. This purchasing strategy has gotten me in to tasting trouble on more than one occasion. However, this summer my label buying and my Russian roulette worked out to my advantage.
