Listen, I’m on Untapped (an app that gives Xbox achievements to functioning alcoholics), I love the delicious and rare microbrews of the midwest, and I get the whole craft beer craze that seems to be overtaking the world these days. Beer is good. And good beer is really good. I know that isn’t the most elegant way of describing someone’s hard work, but I also don’t want to extrapolate on the essence of a beverage’s hidden flavors creeping into the nooks of our tastebuds, I just want the feels and the tastes. I’ll nod along with whatever you have to say about the brew though. I’m polite. Gab away.
For example, I would let Forrest Griffin talk to me about ales, IPAs and whatever else he wanted to talk about. I would even listen to him talk about stuff completely unrelated to beer. It’s the least I could do since he went on Pistols and Predictions with like 2 days notice.
Nice guy, this Forrest Griffin. But will he pass the Guinness Taste Challenge in Dublin with Jonathan Shrager? The pressure is high.
Let’s find out.
