  1. Looks like a fun event! How cool to try beers from around the world in one spot, and so much cheaper than buying them individually to see which tastes you prefer – my hubby would love this to figure out what tastes he’d like to try craft brewing at home! And, what a great idea to have a DD option… Enjoy!!!

    If I drove I’d be in there like swimwear, can we carpool? I did a Sake Tasting Monday, Wines from Spain on Wednesday, this sounds like the way I should wrap it all up! LOL

    Thanks for sharing!
