Whether you're celebrating the flavors of the season, a milestone birthday, maybe an engagement, or even game day, early fall is a wonderful time to host a craft beer tasting party! Beer tasting is a fun theme that's easy to customize to your own tastes. The most important part of this party is the tasting, and Smarty Had A Party has the perfect tasting cups! These mini pilsner style plastic cups are just the right size for a nice sample and the beer looks great displayed in them. 16 tasting cups conveniently fit into a tray for fabulous presentation as well as easy service, and their disposability makes for a quick clean-up.
Creating a craft beer tasting party is simple! Choosing which craft beers to serve will be the most difficult part. Once you've made your selections, set out tasting cups filled with each type of beer. Insert a labeled pick into orange halves for a cute way to help guests identify each beer. For a blind craft beer tasting, label each beer with a number instead of the name. Have guests rank their favorites and compare notes at the the end. Provide full size pilsners so your guests can enjoy their favorites!
Don't forget to serve snacks! Nothing pairs better with craft beer than freshly baked pretzels and spicy mustard. And for dessert: bacon cupcakes! They're the perfect combination of salty and sweet that will surely satisfy your tasting guests.
What you need:
- tasting glasses
- plates: ivory square plates, gold square plates, and dipping bowls
Stack 9.5" ivory plates on 10.75" gold plates for a fun beer-like serving platters! Arrange pretzels on the plates and serve mustard in these dipping bowls.
