July 27 10

Most of you have already seen THIS BEAUTY thanks to the wonder of twitter and flickr. But I feel like it really warranted its own post. Because I am still giggling about, well, just about everything in this shot. And because really it’s just that good.

Behold! I am totally being judged. By my mother.

The sad truth of this picture is that yes, indeed, I did order a ten-beer sampler. But I’m kind of a super lightweight (I can drink a total of 2.5 beers before I am telling the world all of your secrets and possibly dancing in public) and I’m kind of also not really a drinker. So, really, all I did was taste them all….and there was exactly one that I liked. Moosejaw micro-brew fail. Also, please explain why anyone would put FRUIT in beer. It totally violates THE FRUIT COMMANDMENTS. Also, it’s just nasty, much like the rest of the beer I tasted that was both bitter and tasted like sweaty butt.

Wisconsin Dells should stick to what they are good at….salt water taffy. Mmmm.

I’m off to stuff my face.

(and get a good photo of it, obviously)

  1. The glasses, the head band, your eyes, and then your mother’s glare?

  3. Ohmygod. Hilarious! Looks to me like maybe your mom is contemplating a sampler, too? No?

  4. She doesn’t look that disapproving; more curious, like maybe she’d like for you to share one or ten of those beers with her! Haha 🙂

  6. We were just in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin last week. We ate at the Shipwrecked Microbrewery. I ordered their sampler, which only had 5 or 6 beers on it. I totally agree that fruit, aka Cherries, should be left out of beer. I also only found one of the beers that I really liked. I’ll have to post a pic on my blog as soon as I can get it off the camera.

  7. While I cannot agree with The Fruit Commandments, I can totally relate to ordering a beer sampler and hating every one. I’ve tried for the last 12 years to find a beer that I like and have had no luck. Malt liquor it is then!

  9. Mom’s secretly hoping you don’t go for that super fruity looking one in the middle. She’s totally drooling over it.

    I am TOTALLY dying at this photo. How have I missed this gem? That’s pretty much EXACTLY the look I would get from my mom in the same situation. Awesomeness.

  11. I still think your mom is hoping you don’t drink all of them so she could have some. I mean, her basement has flooded! Twice! Bubbe needs a drink!

    Also, fruit beer is disgusting.

    And I’m pretty sure I would have liked most of those beers.

  14. I love Wisconsin beer samplers. It’s like the 9th wonder of the world, right behind my balls.

  15. Your mother’s face was absolutely what I focused on when I first saw this photo on Facebook. Hysterical. Classic.
