So, Husbandguy and I went on a date last night. Our first in... um... forever? The place we went to dinner had $3.oo draughts, and they had a list of about 20 (or exactly 20) draught beers. So I told the guy, who might be the owner or maybe the very dedicated manager and who reminded HG of the Grandpa (in a good way), that I don't usually drink beer, and he suggested I try Bell's Oberon. It's a Michigan brewery. See, since I'm not a beer drinker, I don't know anything about beer except that I don't like Bud and all it's brothers. A long time ago, when I was first learning about alcohol (but after the wine-coolers-are-yummy phase), I thought maybe I liked one of those ice beers and also maybe Killian's, but ew! Seriously.
So I tried the Oberon, and it was really good! I was surprised. It wasn't all grainy-flavored and watery. It had kind of a nice sweetish (but not sweet) finish. I finished it and it wasn't even warm at the end, like my beers usually are. HG ordered a different beer with a definite allspice taste, and I liked that too (it was from Quebec - I'll try to remember the name - something French starting with M*)! The guy (server/owner/manager) recommended two more beers for us, and I liked those too. HG's second was better than mine; it was Rogue Dead Guy, and I thought it tasted like roses (not hot house roses, either - the kind your grandma grew in her yard). My second was something with pomegranate in it. It was okay. It had a 9.0% ABV. I finished it. HG drove home.
So you know, the restaurant we went to has all kinds of food, but they have this long list of cheese steaks and I was totally in the mood for an original with Cheez Whiz, and none of the beers add anything to the taste (not flavor!) of Cheez Whiz. But it was all good.
