Welcome back for the third installment of Beer Missions!

Let me take a second to thank Oliver Gray from Literature and Libation for capturing this perfect picture (above) for Beer Missions!

If you are just seeing Beer Missions for the first time, 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.

Beer Missions #3 was to:

Draw a short comic of how you will or want to enjoy your next beer.

Many people accepted this mission, me included of course.

Beer Mission #3: Mission Accomplished

Mrs. Short on Beer and I have spent the past week+ doing a bit of upgrading to our kitchen and seating area. Over the weekend and first half of this week we have painted and (with a ton of help from my dad) put up a backsplash. After that the only thing to do is grab the heaviest beer I could find, watch my bracket fall apart and pass out. There’s just a few more touchups to do then I’ll share some before and after pictures.

Beer Mission #2: Mission Accomplished

Welcome back for the second installment of 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. That was just a warmup. I decided to go next level for Beer Mission #2.

Beer Mission #2: Drink an entire beer without knowing what it is

Many people accepted this mission, me included of course.

Beer Mission #2: Drink an entire beer without knowing what it is

I went with my friends Jeff and Ben up to one of my usual spots, the Buffalo Wing Factory. Jeff picked out a beer for me and told the bartender what I was trying to do. I should have known something was up when my 16oz pint glass wasn’t filled entirely to the top (hint: it was poured from a bottle which I never do at BWF because they have 30 taps!). This set me up perfectly for a fun bar bet. I was bet that I couldn’t guess what the beer is. I gladly accepted and knew with three attempts I could nail it.

Beer Mission #1: Mission Accomplished

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.

Completing Beer Mission #1 with Bell’s Hopslam

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!
