Due to so much local stuff going on at the beginning of this week, I’m just now getting around to telling you that I spent this past weekend accomplishing one of my bucket-list items — judging a beer competition.
It was not the boozy, raucous event that I had expected, which may have something to do with the fact it was 8:30 on a Saturday morning. Instead, it was a serious affair with a mostly male population comparing tips and reminiscing about favorite beers and breweries. Some people were studying intensely, trying to learn all the characteristics of the type of beer they would taste.
Beer judging is a very regimented process.
