Ben, the beer snob

This is my husband, Ben:

He's pretty great. Yesterday was his birthday and I got him a slightly unconventional birthday present.

Ben is a beer connoisseur. (He's also been called a beer snob.) I love my beer snob. He's also a lover of beer glasses and other fine drinking glasses. Last weekend while he was at the other part of his birthday present, a Craft Beer festival in downtown Lakeland: the Brewz Cruz, I was unpacking all of the glasses. When I was done, I decided to count them all. 114. We have 114 glass drinking glasses.

The hutch in the kitchen (Jen: note the postcard from Ireland! It felt like the appropriate place to put it.)

The bar area in the living room

I texted him while he was at the beer festival to let him know what I figured out and his response was, "You knew what you were getting into when you said, 'I do.'" I did know and I'm so thankful for him.
