Default Wow, a beer list!

For all of the bad experiece posts there should be good experience posts...

Last night SWMBO and I went to a local seafood place we've never been to. I wasn't expecting to find any good beer or anything but I noticed when we walked in a beer cooler that looked pretty well stocked. I did a quick glance and saw SNPA. Cool.

Then we sit down and I see they have a beer list split up by country. Germany, Belgium, Colorado (yeah Colorado!), and England just to name a few.

So I order the SNPA when the waitress says:

"We also have some of the Celebration left. It's their Christmas beer, it's a bit darker and much hoppier. Their on sale for $2 a bottle."

My jaw dropped. How cool is that for a dingy little seafood shack? Sometimes the coolest things happen when you least expect it....

That’s pretty sweet. It is always worth it to check out new places, you never know what you are going to get.

It's always fun to stumble onto some nice beer finds when you go out to new places....

Having said that, I very much disliked SN's Celebration. First time I've tried it (in '07), and to be fair I'm a malt fan, gradually warming up to the bitter beers, but generally I don't like them......

It's cool that you can get that in Texas though although it's barely a state away---I have a VERY hard time finding anything more than Sam Adams and beers from the one major micro brewery in KS (which is actually in Kansas City , MO) here.

No doubt. Usually they say something like "It's a dark beer. It looks like motor oil"

My last time out to eat I asked which style of a particular brand they had. The waiter looked at me confused and after a long pause said, "It's in a brown bottle."

I went to an "Irish" bar in St. Augustine once, complete with a shamrock on the window. I asked for a Guinness and the waitress said that she's never even poured one before. She filled up the glass and asked if it "looked right". lol

I guess I should have known better when the only beer on tap was Bud and Guinness.

I would have much rather stumbled into that seafood place.

About my best encounter was going into some bar well off the main street in Bridgetown, Barbados. Some dude selling necklaces on the street gave us directions. They had Guinness Foreign Extra Stout for $1.50. We hung around for a little while and made bar buddies with the locals.

I get excited anytime I go anywhere where anyone working there is interested in the beer they have and getting better stuff.
