I don’t remember where I got the coaster. It caught my eye right away, and I’ve never looked at one of their bottle caps the same since then. I would have loved to had seen the other entrants (I’ll have to look for that later*). But I had forgotten I had the coaster until I reached for a beer.
My wife and I have a wine party every year, but it’s really just an excuse to have a Christmas party. Our tree is up, and the house is decorated in Yuletide spirit. While it’s our wine party, I always make sure to stock up other alcohols as well, beer included. This year I headed over to The Perfect Pour and went nuts. Part of that purchase was the Tröegs Mad Elf Ale. I picked up a six pack, but no one at the party seemed to want it.
Tonight I opened my beer fridge to see what was looking good, and the Tröegs was beckoning me. Lined in neat rows front to back, each unique beer had its own place in the left to right view, and the Tröegs stood out the furthest. A week ago the guests of my wine party inadvertently chose the beer I am drinking as I retell this tale. So to those who forwent the Tröegs, thank you.
