Happy Beerika!

The Miracle of Beerika
At Christmas of 2007, C and most of the men in the family joined together to buy a bottle of Sam Adam's Utopia. Each got about 1 ounce. Once everyone got his due, the bottle was empty. The next day, C, in sad hopefulness, tipped the empty bottle over a glass. A small amount of liquid dribbled out. This miracle occurred again over the next several days, and thus began Beerika. We celebrate every January with friends, a feast, and fancy beer paired with every course. This year was the 4th celebration. I have no pictures of the festivities, but here's a picture of C's wall-o-beer (back in the day when this was pretty much it...there are about 5 times as many now)!
