With the end of the year fast approaching, I knew I would have a good amount of beer in my basement. Knowing that ‘Tis the season for giving, I brought in 12 bottles of beer for my coworkers to try.
Since the Vienna Lager and the Bohemian Pilsner had rich histories, I put together a powerpoint presentation. Yeah, it was that nerdy but people appreciated the effort and the information. Plus it helped me to remember things I wanted to say while I talked about the beers.
I had slides with notes about the aroma, appearance, and flavors. We went through them all to see if they tasted what the guidelines described.
All and all, it was a good time. It’s always a gamble to bring your beer out for a public tasting, but I felt it was well received.
