Hello food, wine & beer pals! Welcome to my photo-journal of food, wine and beer adventures. I'm pictured on the right and my home brewing pal, Aron is on the left. Years ago I started watching the Food Network, saving recipe's, making recipe's, trying new things, tasting new things, and it's all blossomed from there, including the weekly tastings (beer & wine) at BevMo. I'm hooked on variety and continuing my search for tasty goodness all over the world. Please feel free to email me with comments and ideas at FoodieWinonBrew@yahoo.com Bon Appetito!

Tasting No. 10 @ Metche’s (day 2)

Aron Faria’s Home Brewed Porter

This was the second home brew I had tasted of Aron’s and the beginning of my next step in beer appreciation: making your own at home!!! I met Aron at BevMo (of all places) pouring the wine tastings and his enthusiasm for beer chat soon caught my attention—he wasn’t talking wine anymore, and I liked it! I forgot how much I love talking about beer! See?! I’m even blogging, since I can’t always find a willing ear to listen, haha! He generously gave me a bottle of his porter and I took it willingly, even though I’m not a big porter fan. But I soon realized that the only reason I didn’t like porters is because of the amount of bad ones I’d tasted. Aron’s was good, balanced, rich porter taste—not too sweet. It was Metche’s favorite and impressed the hell out of me. Since then I’ve paid a lot more attention to home brewing. Thank you Aron! Thanks for being a generous and knowledgeable soul that understands the fine art of home brewing—tasting is SO BEE-LEE-ving!
