Start off the evening by opening one bottle of each beer and handing out little tasting samples to each guest. I'd recommend starting with the lightest and moving to the heaviest, but hey, it's a party! No need to stand on ceremony here.
Once the beers have all been sampled, discussed, and appreciated, let guests snag a bottle of their favorite and turn on the music. I also like to open a second bottle of each beer in case people want another tasting or don't want to commit to a whole bottle.
I love watching people discover a beer they love almost as much as I love finding them myself. Beer is definitely a beverage to be appreciated in good company.
Have a new favorite you think we should try?
