The other day I was asked a puzzling question, “what’s your favorite beer?” Being a “beer guy” who has tried hundreds if not thousands of beers, this should be an easy answer. But it wasn’t and I sounded like a d-bag with my response. I want to figure out with you the best way to answer this question so you don’t sound like one too.
Last Friday began the first of hopefully many Beer Missions. A Beer Mission is something you can do when beer maybe gets a little boring. It’s something you can do shake things up and give you new experiences. Your first mission was to give a friend a beer they’ve never had before.
Beer Mission #1: Give a friend a beer they have never drank before
Many people accepted this mission, me included of course.
You can never know for certain how something will turn out now matter how you plan it. Despite knowing this I still crafted this whole plan on how I was going to complete Beer Mission #1. I was going to bring X beer over to X friend and he’d have X reaction. Yeah, that didn’t happen.
Friday night on a whim I met some friends/old co-workers up at TJ Stones, a bar around the corner from where I used to work. My buddy Scott was standing there empty-handed when I walked in. Scott is into craft beer, he homebrews and has high aspirations of one day making it in the industry. Scott has no beer + Scott likes good beer = I should knock out Beer Mission #1 right now!
