Because Beer

It's no secret that I like beer.  Serendipitously, I discovered that my hometown was having its first ever beer festival only days after I started trying to arrange some sort of beer tour. So I quit the arranging, and hopped online to buy a ticket right quick.

The very awesome beer festival, Because Beer, was delicious and gorgeous. Food trucks, live tunes, and twenty-five local craft brewers. The evening was perfect.

Me and my boyfriend, drinking up!

Sliders so good.
And dessert! Bacon creme brulee.
Beautiful sunset over Hamilton Harbour.

I know the beer I like, but I'm no expert. I dig the super hoppy stuff. My boyfriend, not so much. His take on the samplings we had was that "there's a trend with microbreweries making super hoppy beers" and he doesn't care for it. Any beer-lovers out there? Are you seeing this too?

I love IPAs, the hoppier the better as far as I'm concerned. My husband doesn't like them at all. No matter what brewery we go to, I am always guaranteed to order whatever IPA they make.

Now that you mention it, I have noticed that. Which is unfortunate, because I'd love to support the local breweries, but I'm with your boyfriend - not a big fan of hops. If he finds any that aren't too hoppy, please share!
