Pumpkin Beer Fest

A friend of mine came up with such a great idea.  He started having a pumpkin Beer Fest, which means everyone brings some kind of different pumpkin brew. There are little cups so you can sample each beer.  It’s a great conversation starter especially if you don’t know many of the people in attendance. It’s funny to see how everyone’s pallete reacts.   This is a…
