IPA BEER club meeting at Dos Segundos was a big freakin hit!

Don't have much time...gots to run to Bucks County- but a quick blog to share the mexican success that was IPA Beer Club at Dos Segundos last night.

I think throughout the night we had 18 women come.  At one point there was 15 of us there.

The food was great-though spicy.  Fro those of you who have eaten with me in the last month- I've ordered a lot of fish and vegetarian entrees.  I made up for it last night with some buffalo (as is sauce) fried pork cheeks.  I only made it through two and then offered them around because I could handle the spice and my heart couldn't handle the thought.

A lot of the ladies enjoyed the YARDS tavern spruce (as did I and always have).  I was taking it easy so I only had a small glass of that and a small glass of smuttynose winter- which I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would.

I bought a a big bottle of Cigar City's Winter Warmer Warmer Winter- which I poured around for all the ladies.  It was an old ale chockfull of chocolate character.  I enjoyed it a lot but with an abv attached of 10% I wasn't able to drink that much of it. Plus given my impromptu tour de Tom Peters the night prior I wasn't going to be drinking too much of anything.  I told Lance he kidnapped me.  He said it probably wasn't too much of a struggle.

The best part of last  night was the fact that 7 new women came out for the first time.  One because her boyfriend really wanted her to (i think she did too) another said she had wanted to come to a meeting for a while because none of her girlfriends drink beer.

Made me feel good that what I started in June of 2006 still has weight and importance and isn't stopping anytime soon.

Our next meeting will be at YARDS brewing co.  It'll be on a Thursday instead of a Wed and it will start at 6 so we can get tours.
I also think it's gonna be a mixer and if Smashington approves- perhaps a Potluck as well!

Enjoy the day.

PS:  Lance and I are taking off to NYC tomorrow.  We're staying in SOHO- if you have any suggestions other than the beer bars we already know and love please email or comment.

  1. You may have already been, BUT if you get the chance to head over to Brooklyn, check out Bar Great Harry and/or PAcific Standard. Both awesome.
