|Here, try this.|
With the beer festival season about to get into full swing -- don't forget to go to the first-ever Portland Fruit Beer Festival this weekend -- it seems like a good time to ask a question that I've been mulling over for a while. How do you feel about passing the glass around a group of friends, to let everyone have a taste of this really good OR really bad OR really rare beer? I don't mean splitting a bottle or a pitcher, I mean actually handing over your glass and saying "Try this".
- Are you worried about passing germs around?
- How well do you have to know someone before you'll share?
- Suppose you're just recovering from a cold or flu yourself: how long do you quarantine yourself?
