We are always game to hang out with craft beer connoisseurs, so were looking forward to meeting new people and tasting some new brews. We ended up having some insane thunderstorms in the early afternoon, but Mike said the party was still on so we braved the giant road puddles and made our way up.
Some of the other party goers were beer brewers, so Matt had a great time chatting them up and tasting their beers. When we arrived, I spotted Heather right away, who also helped with Matt's birthday beer tasting. The last time we met we didn't have much time to chat, so I was happy to get a chance to know her better.
I tried several new beers, but one of the most unique was the Dogfish Head Wrath of Pecant, which is brewed with plantains and carob. I loved this beer.
I also had a tiny sip o fthe Ghost Face Killah, which is made with habanero peppers. It was honestly way too much. It's good for shock value, but one tiny sip sets your whole mouth afire. Not pleasant!
All in all it was a fantastic afternoon with great people. So glad we braved the rain to join the party!
We arrived back home around 6:00 to spend the rest of the evening with a few of our friends while watching the Olympics. Did anyone else catch Michael Phelps' performance last night? Not impressive. Ah well, I guess you deserve a break once you have 14 gold medals. But enough with swimming, off to watch gymnastics!
