this weekend craig, my sis and i are visiting our alma mater (yes, we all went to the same college) for alumni/homecoming weekend. heading back to school feels like going home - it's a place of so many wonderful memories and happy times. and where i met craig, my soon-to-be husband : )
it's always eye-opening to see how much has changed on campus between our visits, and how much i feel like i belong, while recognizing that i really don't fit at all anymore. the students always get younger and younger (haha) and familiar places are no longer really mine.
well, now that i have bummed you all out, i'm going to end on a fun, college-y note. as i've mentioned before, i'm not much of a beer drinker. for obvious reasons, this trait did not serve me well during college...
|the only beer drink i've ever liked. the pink bulldog from blockheads in nyc.|
anyway, i'm always on the hunt for beer-like beverages that please my palate. so, i thought i'd share my discoveries in honor of the college weekend that awaits me.
i have fallen in love with this beer. (though, i guess you can barely call it a beer...) it's delicious, not-too-sweet and has lovely raspberry overtones. bonus: it comes in an extra large bottle : )
with a variety of awesome flavors from granny smith to pear to caramelly dark & dry, this bev is sure to have a flavor to delight any preference.
our friends introduced us to this one, so i can't take the credit. this cider is even drier/less sweet than woodchuck, which i appreciate. an awesome option for any non-beer drinker. and (bonus), the bottle isn't cutesy - it looks totally legit!
the above options all offer the crisp, refreshing qualities of beer without any of the "hoppiness", which is what i tend to dislike.
so, mavens, enlighten me...do you have any other not-too-girly beer-type beverages i should try?
