A couple of months ago, the hubby and I, along with fellow foodies Phil and Robyn, attended the Amber's Brewing Company brewery tour.
Jim, the very animated owner, gave a lively tour. We started by sampling the various grains then moved onto the different vats to talk about process, politics of the business and the importance of supporting local products.
And don't forget, to sample the beer! We tried a variety of beers as well as their Grog cooler.
Currently, the brewery is in process of relocating but I recommend the tour. Educational and a good time.
Jim also sent us with a *beer sampler pack* to take home (*part of the groupon package we bought). My hubby, Klaus, and I have since enjoyed every version and liked them all.
Klaus, was "lucky" enough to get an entirely different sample :) Jim pulled a good one on him when he pulled open the tap and walked away leaving the Hubby a bit stressed :) Don't worry, no spills!
He kept asking me when I was going to post this blogpost (attention hog, I think!) so feel free to surprise him by leaving a comment here or even better on his twitter account!!!
