My First Bachelors Isn’t From an Accredited Higher Education Facility

My First Bachelors Isn’t From an Accredited Higher Education Facility

My favorite local wing ‘n beer ‘n sports place, Taco Mac, has a loyalty program, Brewniversity.  (When I started, though, it was called the Passport Club.) Last night, I reached 125 beers, which means I’ve earned my Brewniversity Bachelor’s Degree. Aside from the bitchin’ shirt (in the mail soon!), plaque on the wall of my local Taco Mac (no idea when it’s getting added!) and the ability to get a 20 oz. draught for the pint price, I learned a lot about what I do and don’t like. Here’s the complete list, sorted by date, displayed ten beers at a time so your eyes don’t get murdered. (Full disclosure: Some of these weren’t actually drank completely by me.)
