There’s an air of sophistication that accompanies the word tasting. If we were honest and told our therapist we went wine tasting over the weekend, it would lead to a pleasant adult conversation with words like tannic and silky.
If we were slightly more honest and said we downed three bottles of wine, challenged multiple sommeliers to a slap-duel, and somehow woke up in a horse stable, the ensuing conversation would be a little different.
The Beer Tasting Flight does for beer drinkers what a tour in Napa does for winos; it’s the skinny column of credibility that separates a respected appreciation of high-brow alcohol from just boozin’ with the boys.
We have unusually high standards for where we rest our nice beers. It’s why we chose this particular tasting flight, and why our personal coaster’s name is Jeffrey and has a B.A. in Hospitality.
Re-purposed from the stave of an old, oak distilling cask, this tasting flight carries an impressive resume of once holding 50+ gallons of alcohol. Some staves boast the cracks and wear of authentic use, what those in the distilling industry refer to as "character." Now, they've been drilled to hold four bottle cap flavor indicators and four pristine tasting glasses.
Speaking of tasting glasses, this set of four 5 oz. Libbey glasses resemble tiny beer cans of glass and are excellent for sipping and sampling beers in moderation—lots of moderation.
With the Beer Tasting Flight, any beer aficionado can sip clout and class straight from the glass.
In an awesome cardboard box (NOT A CRATE). Corrugated C Flute cardboard with regular slotted style...told you it was awesome!

I had ordered three of these for my older sons and son-in-law for this past Christmas. Although a great sturdy product I was a bit disappointed that it didn't come with the beer like is pictured. When I wrote to ManCrates to express my disappointment, Elaine R. emailed me back very very quickly and expressed her concerns over my disappointment. I highly recommend ManCrates and Elaine for any gift ideas. I was very pleased with the product overall and I will be ordering other ManCrate products in the future. Thank you, Elaine, for going above and beyond. You are greatly appreciated.

Sturdy and sound to the touch. Glass is quality. No need to worry about your "tasting parties" heading a rye(PA) this kit can handle the abuse.
Thanks Wheat-Knee and G.A. Pete for the stellar winter solstice gift!
