Just 48 Hours left to go before the Bluffton International & Craft Beer Festival. My mind is focused on the beer list as I debate which beer to try first. Will it be an old favorite that doesn’t make it around these parts often? Or will it be a new taste?
Will I stampede directly toward the Steelhead Double IPA or Persephone Imperial Pilsener? Or will I start with a Pale Ale (we’ll got quite a few good ones) and gradually build up my hop tolerance level?
Will I resist the temptation to start with Yakima Glory or Hopus? (Resist? Who am I, Superman?)
Will I have a sudden craving for Oud Beersel Gueuze? Or Rodenbach?
Will the Trappist beers from Westmalle and La Trappe show me mercy?
If there’s a chill in the air, will I be drawn to the Winter Warmers from Sweetwater and Harpoon?
Or will I start with a refreshing Witbier or Saison?
Or maybe one of the three ciders? (I like me a good scrumpy.)
The pressure of the decision is weighing on me. To help ease my mind, I need some more mindless beer commercials … won’t you join me?
