Think of them what you will, but nothing beats a garage space for hanging out and quaffing beer with friends. Of course, a trusty kegerator and a stereo doesn’t hurt either.
Chilling in a cool garage space sampling new brews with your buds and revisiting old favorites is one of the best recreational activities. It’s also pretty awesome to use the space to homebrew while you sip.
Last evening, after a killer release party at Victory Bar for Double Mountain’s Fa La La La La, a group of us lounged in the garage. There we busted out some stellar cellared bottles of beer and some special Quebec brews in a box from our friend, and Brewpublic’s own Marc. Merci, monsieur.
While this post is not really centered around any events or breaking beer news, it’s just to say, hallelujah for garages, especially those with kegerators and a stereo.
