That to say ... my misbehaving days were not about acquiring a taste for beer. By our senior year it was perfectly legal to have a wine cooler with lunch at the local Pizza Hut, which I occasionally could splurge on, but by then potential for truly enjoying a beer seemed remote. And, I'm grateful - carbs don't sit well on old ladies.
Then (past several days), we visited Colorado. Craft beer. Rocks.
My son thought a visit to Ft. Collins should include a tasting of "local" beers. We stopped at CRAFT BEER CELLAR and they sent us over to Tap and Handle which was within walking distance. The guys both ordered something from the menu while I asked for just water.
I asked for "a taste" of a couple of their beers ... Ballast Point's Thai Wahoo (I'm a fan, it was exactly what the menu indicted I should expect) and Broadside's Salted Caramel Stout (also yummy).
I had a sip of my husband's beer as well, a pilsner which I thought tasted "like beer".
Three chose a few for his pantry and I got to choose a few to bring home. I'm looking forward to "reading up" on mine and then pairing them with something yummy for little dinner parties.
Thai Wahoo really is the bomb if you like Thai flavors.
Crooked Stave's Craft beer was simply - exquisite.
I'll be looking for what Texas has to offer Craft Beer wise.
