Chris has a knack for coming up with really cool date ideas. I don’t know where he comes up with them, but really does come up with some cool things for us to do. Our most recent date was a trip to brew our own beer at Barleycorn’s Craft Brew in Natick, MA.
When we first arrived, they gave us a list of different beers that we could choose from to make. There are IPA’s, Lagers, Specialty Beers and frankly, just about any kind of beer you can imagine. The list/menu explains what each beer is and I think I’m safe in saying that there were at least 100 different kinds of beers to choose from. We went with a lager. It was actually called the Firehouse Lager and the description on the menu said “Similar to a Sam Adams Lager, but mildly hopped for less bitterness”. Since Chris was a fire fighter in the military and we both like lagers, it seemed appropriate.
Each beer has it’s own recipe and yes, there are people there to walk you through all the steps.
The first step was for us to measure out our grains. They told us exactly which ones to use and how much of each to measure out.
