Jessica is yet another one of my ex-coworkers from the good old dot bomb day. She's from the job that I got fired from for hiding a picture of myself waving in their corporate site. the great part of the whole ordeal is that I wanted to quit anyway, and I think they were confused, or maybe frusterated, that I had a big shit-eating grin on my face the whole time they were repremanding me and telling me "this is serious business here"
So the waitress comes up to us and asks what we'll have, and jessica asks "what's the weirdest beer you have?", which, I'm sure, is bound to bring up a whole plethera of entertaining answers. What our server came up with though was a beer called Hatuey that she says is imported from Cuba. Hmmmmm, I don't feel so bad for little Elian anymore.
So I got the beer and it was pretty damn good, not fantastic like a good scotch ale or oatmeal stout mind you, but for a light beer I was fairly impressed. One thing that did get me a little down though is the label said (in small print) that it was one of cuba's finest beers....brewed in MARYLAND?? what the hell? I feel like I've been decieved. If I had bought the beer, I'd be a little P.O.'d, but jessica did, so really, it didn't bother me that much.
