Last Friday I was told we’d be having an afternoon wine tasting at work. Being rather busy and not being able to drink much (what with the lengthy commute vast approaching), I wasn’t particularly enthused. But what the heck, right? Missing an hour or two of work on a Friday afternoon for some wine snobbery can’t be all bad. The tasting was put on by our neighbors with whom we split an office. We’d just moved in and I hadn’t met many people from the other company, save the pit bull who tries to bite my nuts off every time I go fill up my water bottle in the shared kitchen. Turns out he’s a friendly dog once you get to know him, but he takes a while to warm up to developers. The owner of said pit bull ended up being Chris Bjerrisgaard, fellow beer enthusiast and author of local blog Truecask.com. What are the odds? Pretty good actually.
Anyway, Chris brought some beer along to the wine tasting and schooled my colleagues in the finer points of beer. He brought along Driftwood Farmhand Ale (a Belgian Saison in style) and Storm’s 12 year aged fruit lambic, two fine beers. It was a pleasure to meet you in person Chris and thanks for sharing your goods!
