It’s Good to Know the Beer Guy

by Renee on September 25, 2010

One of my new Twitter friends, or “tweeps,” is Meredith, AKA girlbeergeek. She was kind enough recently to send me a very cool t-shirt. I wore it to the high school football game last night (when the temperatures still felt like summer, unlike today). After the game, Paul and I stopped by the newest pub in our little town, the Burntwood Tavern. It has a fine selection of beers on tap, including Southern Tier’s Pumking Ale, some Dogfish Head, as well as Cleveland’s own Great Lakes Brewing Company beers.

I was approached by a young man behind the bar named Ian, who introduced himself as the beer buyer, and he asked, “Well, how’d I do on the beers?” I gave him props for his choices, and of course told him he should look into getting some Sierra Nevada Jack & Ken’s Ale. Meredith forewarned the shirt would get attention, but I’m okay with that. It’s good to know the Beer Guy.

By the way, you can follow me on Twitter at BrewersDaughter.

My wife’s favorite shirt says, “Chicks like beer too!” It has a bottle of spilled beer with baby chicks (chickens) pecking at it and it also gets lots of comments from both men and women…

Remember: women have better, more refined, taste buds, then men — so it would reason that women would enjoy a good craft beer too!

So where is the Napa Valley of beer? I love me some beer and although I drink much more wine, I’m starting to see that beer can be just as nuanced and definitely as enjoyable. I’d love to go on a “beer tasting trip” if I only knew the destination…

Hmm, Napa Valley of Beer… I’d say craft breweries are probably more common out west, where they started, in Northern California. But they’re popping up everywhere these days!
