Brew wife (/bro͞o wīf/) : a sophisticated lady married to a wonderful man who is obsessed with making (beer, ale, etc.) by steeping, boiling, and fermenting malt and hops while turning our small apartment into a chaotic mess and completely taking over the fridge to fill it with beer.

tap takeover

A tap takeover, in summary, is when a single brewery temporarily seizes a portion (or all) of an establishment’s tap lines with a variety of their beers.
It is a great opportunity to drink beers that are normally not available because they are limited release beers or just not distributed in the area.

Last night the Lokal and Kush had a tap takeover by Sixpoint Brewery. This brewery has awesome beers, Laz's favorite beers are made by them, and they also have this crazy series called Mad Scientist, which of course I love..... The Mad Scientist beers are quite special because the brewers create a small batch with unique ingredients to make a new style of beer, and they release a new one every two months.

I will say that events like this do have a down side! How on earth is one supposed to decide which beers to try? Sooo many good choices....sooo little time... and even if you do start early in the day, how much could you drink before reaching the dreaded palate fatigue leading to just getting horribly wasted.
Just take a look at the beer menus
I must say that I was really happy to try new stuff, and they were all very, very good....I'm a  happy girl!

P.S..... they do exist!
