I would like to make a toast to everyone who has ever tried a drink and absolutely hated it. We’ve all been there. It’s awkward, you sort of feel like a jerk, and worst of all, you have a drink you don’t want.
I have that problem with a lot of beer. Wait! Don’t run away. I do like beer. Just wanted to get that straight. I’m just rather picky. I think my main problem is that I don’t really know much about beer, so I have a difficult time picking ones I like. Over the years, I’ve narrowed my tastes down to a few very generic categories (dark and darker), but in the end, I don’t really know why I like them, and I don’t branch out very often. That’s all about to change.
So here’s to new trying new things, spending time with good friends, broadening beer horizons, finding some new hangouts, and maybe even learning a little bit along the way.
