Beer!

July 14, 2007 – 9:55 pm

I never liked beer. I thought I was just weird, different to other people. I’d tried so many beers over the years but never liked any of them. In the end I gave up. “Sorry, I cant drink beer. It makes me nauseous”. Recently there’s been a bit of a change. My sister in law was visiting earlier this year from Japan. On the last day of her trip we went to Epoque in Cammeray. I tried Hoegaarden. I liked it. I tried Leffe Blonde. I liked that too. I tried Stella Artois. I liked that the most.

Now about 6 months has passed and the list of beers I like has grown quite a bit. I have no idea why I now like beer but I’m very grateful. The beers below were some recent noteable discoveries. I’m keen to try “Matilda Bay Crema” and “3 Ravens White” next.
