A couple weeks ago The Second Quarter and I went to the NZ Beer Fest. For anyone who knows me, this seems like a stupid thing to do because I'm not a fan of beer. Not even a little bit. But it was one of those days where getting out and about in good company seemed like the thing to do, and so I went. I'm glad I did. I did try the beer. In fact, there was one beer (Belle-Vue Kriek) that I had that was trying really hard NOT to be a beer. It had some sort of cheery undertone and well, it was still a beer that just tried so hard to not be a beer. I totally admire it's attempt to be a beer, and not be a beer. I also heard alot about how people weren't that into the dark ales. I'm glad I didn't try any.
It also seemed to be that every second person that I saw was someone I knew, which felt pretty great. I didn't take as many photos as I should have, but the few that I did take ended up being ones alot like these two:
We're both a bit drunk. I'm not sure exactly what we are trying to do with our facial expressions. I'll save your eyes from the others.
Another interesting thing was that Epic Beer had a big projector that showed a live feed of any tweet that mentioned @epicbeer. Naturally, me and The Second Quarter totally got our geek on.
My tweet came up top right. The Second Quarter was gonna sass, but pulled out at the last minute ... he said something about it being immature using such rude words, and tried to be clever with a twitpic instead:
All in all, it was a great day. I'm sure if I was a fan of beer it would have been pretty phenomenal. What grand things have you been up to lately?
