I’m no genius, nor am I as loquacious when drinking beer (it seems) as I am on this blog.
With that inauspicious intro, I give you Sub-Optimal Beer Episode 2: Bud Light vs. Miller Lite AKA Absolute Zima.
I think I got in 3 sentences and about as many guffaws (sorry, I sat close to the mic) after the final edit. Completely representative of my contribution relative to the other attendees, though I aspire for more participation in the future.
Sadly, some familial duties trump my attendance at tonight’s taping/event, so lift a glass/bottle for me. And if you see a surly lot at The Highlander making too much noise … it’s likely not the podcasting crew, that’s the normal clientele.
As someone who almost exclusively drinks craft beer (in bottles, at home, with the wife, after the kids are asleep) I love seeing the trends that started 10 years ago in microbrewing really start to gain broader traction.
I’d even go so far as to suggest – despite the name of the podcast – that we devote an episode to the local/regional microbrews of Atlanta, or even spend a night (or two) sampling the wares of 5 Seasons or even (maybe more appropriately) Gordon Biersch.
I dunno. First off, I’ll have to attend more than once every other time.
Note to self: make sure life doesn’t intrude on Wednesdays. All other interruptions fine.
Anyhow, have a listen to the dulcet tones of the podcasters discussing the pedestrian beers of our time. We sound better than they tasted.
