Cinco de Drinko Beer Tasting

Posted: May 4, 2012 in Just another great tasting

For those of you asking what the Buffalo Beer Advocate Beer Tastings entail, here is your insight.

Every attendee usually brings 2-3 bottles per person, any member opens any bottle that is available and any beer unopened goes home with the participant that brought it. Here was our line up for the current evening…

    Are you sure you weren’t home all night with a 6 pack of Dos Equis, wishing you were “The Most Interesting Man in the World?”
