Beer Tasting

Beer Tasting, originally uploaded by ElementaryTechTeacher.

For Valentine's Day my husband took me down to Copperstown. First we stopped at his favorite pizza place for a slice for lunch. I took a few pictures and then we headed out to the country for a visit to one of our favorite breweries, Brewery Ommegang. It's a Belgium style brewery. The tour guides are always friendly and knowledgeable. We learn something new with each visit. At the end of the tour comes the tasting of their unique beers. They are unfiltered so they leave the sediment in the bottom of the bottle. The bartender said in Belgium at the end of the evening people start buying shots of the sediment. It is full of vitamins and is supposed to help ease the effects of a hangover. Before we left my husband bought me a Ommegang bike jersey for Valentine's Day. If you ever go to the Baseball Hall of Fame be sure to stop by the brewery for a tour and a tasting.
