Boards & Beers
Since drinking on the job is not really encouraged at work, we created an event that would serve our desire to get a little tipsy at the office. It all started when a few of us recognized that a number of staff members enjoyed the game Settlers of Catan. Someone suggested that we all get together and play a game or two and have a few drinks after work; and thus, Boards and Beers was born! While Settlers of Catan never made it to the game table (we realized that it might get a little too heated), we had a host of other games to choose from. The main events took place at the Balderdash and Taboo tables, though there were some memorable games of Apples to Apples as well.
In addition to the board games, and true to the event’s title, we had an array of delicious beers to fill us up and add a little excitement to the night. From what I remember, we had an Omegang Witte Ale, an insanely sweet Cherry Lambic (I don’t recall the brewery, nor do I care to remember!), Dogfish Head 60 Minute, Killians, Shock Top and an assortment of Blue Moons. All in all, there was just the right amount to get the entire office happy without going into wild mode. Suffice it to say, we were all a little rosy in the cheeks.
