We threw a beer-tasting party!
It's been almost a full year since we last threw a party. That one was July 5th 2015, and it served as Mike's going-away. I was a party-throwing old-pro...I didn't even need to buy decorations.
Now, a year later, we have accumulated enough friends and acquaintances to fill out a guest list. We decided to revolve it around beer (obvs) and ordered a whole box of craft magic from a local startup called Wishbeer.
We had a great turnout, even though it was summertime which means go home and visit the family time. Guest excuses included Ireland, Denmark, Canada, Australia, Taiwan and Japan, which although disappointing, was a nice change from "I'm sick" or "It's my great-uncle's birthday".
