Best Cheap Beer Social Event

All work and No Play makes QA Testing job boring. One of the popular social events that one of the companies I worked at had was something called the "Best Check Beer Social Event."

The goal of this popular event is to do a taste test to find which of the cheapest beers taste the best. Participants would buy their own been and someone would pour them into plastic cups so that people can do a blind taste.

This is a fun social event to get people to think about what makes beer taste good - and to try to figure out what beer they are tasting.

Cheap Beer Event

Simple Instructions

Here’s what to do:

  1. Choose your favorite selection from [Beer Advocate's Bottom 100 Beers](https://www.beeradvocate.com/lists/bottom/) (or something else… doesn’t really matter… just has to be cheap)
  2. Let the organizer know what you plan to bring so there's no overlap.
  3. Bring in a 6-pack of your beer on taste day (if it only comes in 4-pack, then get two)
  4. We’ll have a blind taste test and give each beer a 1-10 rating in the following categories:
  • Appearance
  • Smell
  • Taste
  • Mouthfeel
  • Overall

Then we’ll get someone in product to make some charts and graphs with the results.
