There will also be one more beer tasted, that will be chosen by DREW on Thursday

WOW! THE BEER TASTING WAS CRAZY CROWDED- A GOOD SIGN CONSIDERING A YEAR AGO THIS WASN’T EVEN LEGAL AND IT SEEMED NOBODY CARED ABOUT CRAFT BEER. A GOOD SIGN FOR THINGS TO COME! 

Here’s the blurb from the City paper:

TASTING | Who’d turn down this jury duty?
Beer Rating and Tasting
Fri. July 27, 7 p.m.
$10
Avondale Wine and Cheese
813-B Savannah Hwy.
West Ashley

Beer snobs, get ready to swill some suds. This Friday, Avondale Wine and Cheese will be hosting a beer judging event. Representatives will have booths set up offering samples of their brew, which will be paired with specific cheeses to enhance their flavors. Attendees will rate the beers, and Avondale will add the top ten picks to their menu. The offerings will include several Belgian Beers, such as Duvel, and Delirium Tremens, whose name means “trembling delirium” in Latin (better hope that’s not foreshadowing). A Decent Animal and Lindsey Holler will be providing some tunes to set the atmosphere. Ten bucks will let you decide which beers from around the world make the cut.

 Sam Adams Brewery representatives will be on hand for questions as the menu pairs five different brews with frog legs, mussels, swordfish, lacquered bacon, chocolate p’t’, and sides. Wed. July 25, 7 p.m. $65/person + tax and gratuity. Carolina’s, 10 Exchange St. 724-3800. www.carolinasrestaurant.com
