Daisy Cutter Pale Ale is one such beer. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this beer, and would hoppily (see what I did there?) drink it again. But if you listen to the praises online about this brew, you'd think that you would be transported into this fantastic beer nirvana the moment you had your first sip. That didn't happen, it was just a really solid Pale Ale. One that I would buy again, but there are also several Iowa Pale Ales that I would choose over this one.
I guess my point is, don't believe the hype. Many people will talk about beers that are supposed to be great because they think that's what they're supposed to say, not because they truly believe it. If you think Busch Light is the best beer you've ever had, own it, if it's Daisy Cutter, more power to you. You should be more concerned with enjoying what you like, than drinking what is currently "cool" or "it" in the beer community.
It all led up to fair day. It was a warm and muggy July day, that started with a 7am check in and went until after 1:00. Joseph did a great job working with Arson and staying upbeat, even when things didn't go so well (like the sit and stay portion of obedience. By the end of the fair, Joseph and Arson came away with 1 first place ribbon for showmanship (helped by the fact that Joseph learned so much about his dog,) and 2 third place ribbons in rally and agility, where he competed against many kids several years older than himself. It was a proud parent moment seeing his hard work pay off, and how he kept his composure throughout the whole process. It's interesting being a parent and watching your child grow and mature. It was also my first experience with 4H. It's nice to see a group help children learn good habits, like work ethic, responsibility, and community outreach. He's already talking about doing it again next year.
