I'm going to beer club. It's 20 members. 25 dollars a meeting. Different host every meeting. Host buys the beer for the four flights we try. Makes the food. Provides extra beer from leftover money for miscellaneous beers between flights.

It's learning about new beers. Or at least that's what we tell our wives and girlfriends.

oh my GOD I need a beer club in my life again

(I work part-time at a wine shop and don't really do a lot outside of that. I'd like that to change.)

Interestingly enough I used to work in a winery! It's this big warehouse in the suburbs where we would have the wine grapes sent to us from all over. We would get people to buy either a half barrel or a full barrel with a bunch of their friends.

Then we would bring them in and they would crush the grapes in our crushers with us. They'd come back and press the grapes a week later. And all the hot storage yeast adding and wine magic/maintenance would be done on our end.

We'd bring them in for a fresh tasting before aging it in the barrel. Then a year later they'd come and bottle their own wine with us. Custom labels bottle machines corking we'd walk them through it.

It's called Wine U Design. Operated without a liquor license because technically we weren't selling people wine they're making it themselves. :stirrer:

Working at a wine shop affords you the best opportunity of all. You have thousands and thousands of hours of peoples hard work through countless years sitting on your shelf. You should open up a finer things club and have wine tastings and take that pallet of yours on a journey through wine town every month.

I'm cleaning because of lice in my house and getting my drivers license renewed because I wasn't 21 yet when I got it

That's a neat concept! There are a couple of homebrewer helpers around here. The store I'm at does free tastings on Saturdays that are focused on good wines at $15 or less (more often than not they're $10 or less).

2018 Ford Fusion. Metallic gray. It’s a lease and it has all the bells and whistles. I love her soooooo much. I named her Lady Macbeth.
