3 Hours of Sour Power

Hey there!

Hi, guys! Just a quickie post because Mal and I are having guests over for dinner. We’re planning to grill and drink some of the fun beers that we bought at the beer tasting this afternoon, so this recap is going to be more of a show and tell post. I hope ya don’t mind! πŸ˜‰

This afternoon, I attended a beer tasting event at Gordon’s Wine and Liquors called “3 Hours of Sour Power,” which featured a variety of sour beers. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon and celebrate the beginning of spring. The event was a walk-around tasting, similar to the Black Beer Affair, so we tried a whole bunch of beers at our leisure.


There were SO MANY interesting fruity and sour beers to try! I ended up trying about half of them.

Marie and me.



The beer reps were so knowledgeable about what they were pouring for us. I think we all learned quite a lot!

At the event, I ran into a couple of Boston-area bloggers: Jen of Healthy Laps!


And Susie of We Are Not Martha! I love both of these ladies!


All in all, the 3 Hours of Sour Power event was a really great time. I tried a ton of new beers and even bought a couple of my favorites to enjoy this evening.

Sorry for the limited commentary on this post. I have guests to entertain!

See ya for dinner!



  1. what a fun day! you seem like such a fun person, willing to try everything πŸ™‚ i admire your balance..

  2. Hey Tina I know you are busy but when I try to buy the MyPressi Twist using the code “IceCoffee” it says “We’re sorry you cannot purchase this product with a coupon.” I really would like to buy it on sale so let me know what I am doing wrong! Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  3. Okay, right now I don’t care what beer I have, I just want beer poured into a wine-type glass! It looks so much more… feminine? I don’t know. I just love the look of it!

  4. A couple of things…:
    1. For being obsessed with pb, i dont know how you have such restraint. i literally can go through a jar in a sitting.
    2. You say two spoonfuls of pb on your oats, but the photo looks like one. Do you go back for more post pic?
    3. you are my fave blog family evahhhh. if murph ever needs a sitter, you can call me and ill travel from Burlington VT to mass ANYDAY!!!
    4. so glad youre a chunky pb kinda gal… not enough of us here in blogworld lately, agreed?

  5. You do beer tastings a lot–would you rather do a beer or a wine tasting?

    I feel like I wouldn’t enjoy a beer tasting since I don’t really like beer–but maybe I just don’t like the way I feel when I drink TOO much… hm

  6. Tina– my mom LOVED the pictures of the wedding and rehearsal dinner. You made all the food look as good as it was! I will totally split a bottle of the Duchesse with you the next time we’re home. Greg thinks it’s a little gross, but I am in love with it. So good!

  7. Hi Tina! Your blog was recommended to me by someone I met where I work after we found out we read a lot of the same blogs! I am really enjoying reading it πŸ™‚ I wish I knew this beer tasting was going on at Gordon’s… I live right around the corner! Looks like it was fun!
