Beer Tasting Tonight

The other weekend we had a few friends over our apartment for a little beer tasting.

DFH made a glossary to assist people in "what to look for" when rating the beer.

We had previously told everyone to bring their favorite beer to share, which was then voted on.

Lots of Koozies were necessary.

We had some delicious snacks and appetizers.

I had read that popcorn is a palate cleanser for beer, so I made sure there was popcorn and water during the tasting, ( for the serious taste tester)

We lined up the beers, and gave each a letter.

The Score Card: There were categories of taste, presentation, body, drink ability, and "ahh" factor

( See glossary for definitions haha)

Everyone then ranked each category between 1-5 for each beer

And the winner was......

Turbo Dog!

It was a dark beer, that tasted like chocolate to me..yum

Jake provided the winning beer, and was the winner of the "Victory" beer prize

We had such a great time with friends, and I enjoyed getting to taste and try new beers.  This is something we will definitely be doing again.


  1. What a fun party idea! I wish I would have done something like this when I was in college. xo
