A Nice Surprise
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:08:20 PM »
My wife, who knows next to nothing about beer, decided to surprise me yesterday. Apparently, she did about an hour of research while waiting at an appointment, and ended coming home with this. I think she's a keeper :)

Yeah, very nice. She's batting 1,000 as far as I can see.

The cutest thing was she told me that we need to save the goats :) She apparently hasn't seen my collection lol!

Very nice. My wife has put those on as earnings, after several of those. True story.

You  got a keeper! Mine has done the same for me a few times. I love it when they "get us"

She done good. It could have ended badly...

It is a really solid beer. It's more West Coast than Northeast. We had just seen it at The Big E, but we were on the way out and the link was long and slow. My wife knew I wanted to try it, thus the sole non-German beer in the selection.
