Thank you kindly for the thought.
I, as I would hope understand, was trying to say I try to honor my host wherever I'm at and drink it their way.
Wife & I had the pleasure of helping Chambers Bay Distillery fill on Sat & Sun back in Dec. Second day was the special bourbon, I asked him if he had an opinion on how it's drank and if I may bring Coke Zero. He had no problem with it. (The day before filling Ghost Dog we were drinking everything straight)
I brought my Zero and it was funny how many people were like, DUDE genius!
What can I say? I was taught to mix 😄
Sure hope you're having a great time out East. We have a ton of amazing ciders, if you ever come to the Tacoma area and need a place to crash, you have a bed available... Plus, once you get your legs under you I'll introduce you to Cockrell Cider, Schilling Cider Tap Room, Schilling Cider Cider House, Fierce County, Locust, Elemental Cider, oh Lord, a million ciders in Woodinville, 3 cideries over on the peninsula, 2 or 3 ciders out on Vashon island... If you wanna do cider, I know a thing or two 😉
