Last night, the Columbia Beer Enthusiasts had a dark beer tasting. As you can see from the list below, dark beers can be awfully varied and we barely scratched the surface of possible styles. This was our first tasting in a while. We held the get-together at Uprise for the first time and plan to be back in the near future. Be on the lookout for a holiday tasting and Yankee Swap this December for paying members. Speaking of which, it's not too late to pay dues.
