    So I work in a shop making and repairing window screens, as well as repairing broken windows. Last week an old friend dropped off 14 window screens to be rescreened. Today, he picked up his finished screens. While I ran his card for payment, he brought a grocery bag from his car. Inside the bag was a six pack of assorted beers. He said to me “What else do you give a guy who loves beer?” I responded with sincere gratitude, and am looking forward to consuming this tip. I have been tipped in cash from many customers, but this beer tip is a first.
    Cheers

    image.jpg Here is my tip, in picture form. Left to right, Urbock from Germany, Lunch IPA from Maine Beer Co., Subliminally Self Righteous Black IPA from Stone, Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Backwoods Bastard by Founders (my friend is from Michigan), and Westmalle Trappist Ale Tripel. Not bad for a day’s work. Cheers!

    That German beer on the left is a Rauchbier, so I get to see if I love or hate “smoked” beer. Intriguing.

    The Nut Brown is a beauty, the only one of those I have had. Let us know how that Black IPA is, BIPA is one of my favorite styles!

    Only one those I know I don't like is the stone brewing. They have a funky aftertaste.

    I don't remember the brewer, but there is a local company here that does a peat smoked porter. Fabulous!
