I am normally a wine and bourbon girl. Wine for dinner, for parties, for after those long work days. Bourbon for special occasions, special dinners and those really long work days. But it's always good to keep an open mind, so when the situation arises I'm open to trying something different.
Now I wasn't always this way. In college I was that really annoying picky girl drinker, the one that would go to the frat party and refuse to drink the keg beer. I'm still unapologetic of my behaviour, it was just gross. Like carbonated water that had gone slightly off, I was more of a wine cooler type of girl. Until I discovered The Ginger Man and their Tuesday special, drink the beer of the day and keep the glass. And being in college and on a limited budget this was a great way to get some pretty unique glassware, and also turned me on to the fact that beer could be good.
It was a great night with friends, chatting and getting great recommendations from the knowledgeable staff. And while for me beer is something I don't indulge in too often, for special occasions with the right stuff and of course the right company it can be a pretty delicious treat.
