I Am: Dearly Beloved Blonde Ale & Meet Me At the Altar Amber Ale
I Am Best Enjoyed With: Wedding duds, thirty friends and family, too much good food to list, late-night dancing, and probably the best nuptials ever performed in my parents’ backyard. To top it off, few days before Adie and I got hitched, my brother and sister-in-law presented us with nearly a hundred bottles of this home-brewed amber and blonde ale, complete with homemade labels, printed in our wedding colors. (Yep, they thought of all the things I wouldn’t have).
You Think I Am: Lovingly prepared and perfect for overindulgence. The blonde ale, brewed with two whole grapefruits, was a wonderful answer to the warm September night and approximately 2.5 hours of sweaty, polyester-clad dancing on the patio. (We actually threatened to run out of the blonde before Micah nabbed a few to save for the sake of posterity). The amber, while heavier in flavor and higher in alcohol content, was a dose of malty goodness when paired with the barbecued tri-tip.
I Taste Like: Something I wouldn’t change for all the wheat in Eastern Oregon.
