Summer Beer Fest.

This weekend was so. much. fun. Friday my brother and his fiance (!!!) came over and Garth made the most delicious dinner - Italian chicken, mashed potatoes, and edamame. Then we walked to Dairy Queen and then had a game night. Perfection.

Saturday we were up early and off to Denny's with my bro and Jess for a yummy breakfast. Then we met up with more fun friend and went to Summer Beer Fest. If you know me, you know I don't like beer very much. I'm very much a wine snob. Nonetheless, I knew Garth was super excited and I was open to trying new things. I actually had a blast! I tried lots of new fruit beer and some summer wheats. But by the end, it was all tasting the same - thick and bitter. I think it's safe to say I'm done with beer for awhile now. I'm ready for a wine fest!=)
Here is me and my future sister-in-law:

Part of the gang:The whole gang:

Cheers!! Afterwards, we went downtown Detroit to Mexican town for some of the best tacos I have EVER had!

Sunday poor Garth had to take an online exam so we was literally studying a straight 12 hours. I went to church and lunch with my fam and then read a good book. Around 7p.m. Garth finished his exam (and did really well!) and we got sushi and champagne to celebrate our 3 years. It was the perfect end to a perfect weekend.

There are some beers out there that taste a lot like champagne. I suggest the Brooklyn Local 1 as a good beer to start with if you want to find a bit of what I'm talking about. Of course there is nothing wrong with not liking beer, but much like wine - there is something out there for everyone.

That looks like you had a good time! Mr. Potts and I have hosted both an Oktoberfest and a wine tasting. Both are fun.

You could have a competitive wine tasting like we did. I think I could draw out the details if you want them. It was a lot of fun!
