Bottoms Up: A beer tasting

The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind.
- Humphrey Bogart

Sometimes ordering the usual at your local watering hole can become a bit stale. If you’re feeling adventurous and looking to try something new, requesting a flight of beer may be the best way to excite your taste buds and to wake your palate up!

Traditionally, flights of beer are served on a sleek, wooden paddle with an array of frothy beers to sample. The best way to achieve an honest taste of each variety is to work your way down the line starting from the lightest beer and ending at the darkest. If you start at the other end or pick randomly from the line up, you will risk over saturating your palate, losing the nuances of each sample. Many pubs and taprooms provide the option for you to customize your flight, allowing you to choose any beer they have on tap.  

Now that we can bring the long-standing tradition into our home with our new beer flight set, we have chosen to fill our glasses with our favorite cold beers from all over the world.
