My hubby loves beer. Don’t worry, not in an “AA” kind of way. He enjoys the nuances of beers and evaluates hoppy IPAs with friends like others savor fine wine… but in t-shirts & shorts instead of khakis.
I, on the other hand, thought all beer tasted the same… awful. Not a fan. The kids love it when I try Daddy’s drink, they laugh at my “beer face”. I figured that I just wasn’t a beer girl. Until I enjoyed a tasting tour here in St. Augustine. Stouts and ales, I discovered, can be deep and flavorful without the bitter, hoppy punch at the end that distinguish IPAs. Maybe it’s not all bad… now I’m ready to be convinced. Enter the Jacksonville Craft & Import Beer Festival.
Whether you’re a beer aficionado or a hesitant spouse, you’ll have a chance to taste 300 beers at next month’s 5th annual Jacksonville Craft & Import Beer Festival! (I suggest you choose wisely- all 300 may be a bit much for this one-evening event. 😉 haha)
