Tasting notes from a holiday party

The following brews are some of the wines and beers that were tasted at a combination birthday and holiday wine party. The beers were brought by a couple who claimed they do not know much about wine. The Bouteille Call (pronounced "bootay call") was offered by a San Franciscan couple. As it's said, we ate, drank, and were merry!
