“One hundred bottles of beer on the wall…”
Truth be told, I was never a beer kind of girl - if any of you readers have had the (blessed!) chance of seeing me at a party, I’m always the one with the outfit-coordinated fruity cocktail in hand. Therefore, when the invitation to attend a Harpoon Brewery beer tasting at Morton’s Steakhouse arrived in my inbox last week, I was slightly hesitant to accept. However, after speaking with some of my beer “enthusiast” friends about Harpoon, they convinced me that I should go – as Harpoon is one of the leading craft beer brewers in the New England area. Plus, as a good foodie (or in this case drink-ie?), it’s my job to be adventurous and expand my palate :)
When I arrived, I was greeted with an ice bucket filled with different types of Harpoon beers – which was intimidating for me (the last beer I had was a Bud Light back in college). But my fears were assuaged, by the gentle voice and knowledgeable brain of Bill the bartender/Harpoon brand rep and his assistant. Bill (patiently) described each beer to me before I imbibed – noting each flavor profile, how the beers were brewed, and what foods each beer should be paired with.
