Great story - really cool - bam, bam, gone! And I bet most of them won't forget how EXCELLENT it was!
I had just shared a growler of my take on all-citra IPA I have been tweaking a few years, a la Zombie Dust, at a small party. Plus a cooler of a variety of Bridgeport beers I still had on hand.
I also took a few bottles of some 2012 wines I made: some red meritage (Bordeaux-style blend), a syrah, and an apricot port. I've been working pretty hard at winemaking (nearly all from grapes) increasingly especially the last few years.
And of course everybody had brought lots as their contribution -- beers, wines, booze.
The next day definitely was the shortest day of the year. Mostly due to getting home at 2 am, and then sleeping in extra late due to a bit of a hangover, more so from mixing the fruit and the grain than from the amount I consumed.
