SMACK! Beer Makes Me…

Written by on December 12th, 2014 // Filed under Beer, Event

Beer pairs insanely well with food. In fact, considering the plethora (whoa…big word!) of different beer styles out there, the opportunities are endless!

The awesome Beerhouse Fourways hosted us on Monday 8th Dec for their biggest ever Meet the Brewers event. We brought along 6 of our finest brews, which were carefully paired with 6 delish gourmet dishes by Roy, their Executive Chef. It was a great night where we got to tell everyone why they need a bit of a SMACK! in their lives. In front of 50 hop headed food-and-beer lovers, we got to discuss each beer in detail, including how we brew it, and why we love it.

We ended the evening by giving all of the attendees a piece of paper which read “SMACK! beer makes me…”. Everyone filled out exactly what SMACK! beer makes them feel / do / want / need… As you can imagine, after a few beers already in the bellies, the responses ranged from hilarious to just plain weird!  We selected the top 3 who each took home a sick SMACK! cap as a prize. We also gave away a SMACK! shirt to the top tweeter of the evening. *high fives all round*

Check out some of the responses below.  We’re happy to say that most of the hop heads in attendance are as mental as we are!!
