Passing thought about tasting beer...

Have you ever been intimidated? You know by that guy with the big beard who has some mysterious liquid in his glass that must be beer he made from the most exotic ingredients in the world using brewing methods he has perfected over decades? Or how about that time when you tasted something that sucked only to find out that it was a $7 bottle of beer considered to be the nectar of the gods by those "in the know". I have, but, not anymore. I'm here to say "Relax have a homebrew."....oh wait that was Charlie Papazian. I'm here to say something like that, something in the same spirit. Relax enjoy your experience. You will only get to taste that beer for the first time once :-) Don't let anybody tell you how to taste beer! That experience is yours. Nobody can take it away. Take your time. Don't be in a hurry to become the next Michael Jackson. Enjoy your beer. Hate a beer if you want. Just be open to the experience. Enjoy and don't let anybody tell you what you like.

Now it's Adam doing the intimidating!

Speaking of intimidating, I've got a nice carry-on bag full of bombers from CA breweries. If I don't get on this stinkin' flight soon, I'm gonna have to open a few of them!

Fortunately, there's Anchor and Gordon Biersch brewpubs within a couple hundred feet of each other here in Terminal 3 at SFO :)
