As the day went on our sun started to get covered by clouds. As the people arrived we were deciding where to have the beer tasting, inside or outside. We finally decided on eating inside and drinking by the fire pit.
I took my brisket off the pit. It had been smoking for 7 to 8 hours. It looked beautiful.
After eating our brisket and several different salads that people had brought we headed downstairs to the backyard for the main reason we had come together.
As we put our chairs around the fire pit we could tell there were more clouds moving in. We had no rain drops yet though.
The flat ole hippies even stopped by to taste some beers.
Tom, our beermeister, picked from our big selection of beers from England, Scotland, Iceland, Oregon, and some local beer that was oak aged for 5 years. As the evening progressed we started to feel some drops coming down but we went on.
We hung in there until it started to get dark. We then had to move it into the house.
On the nineteenth beer we finally ended. It was one that we had brought back from Iceland that was made with whale testicles and smoked in sheep dung. It was a wonderful way to end the night. Everyone started leaving around midnight with fun had by all.
Do any of you out there have a gathering like this? We do it about once a year and it is a great time.
Hope you weekend was as fun as ours?
