The monthly beer tasting at Midtown's Maple Leaf Pub is one of those rare finds that makes me struggle with my journalistic compulsion to share and my selfish desire to protect what's cool and uncrowded.

Every first Tuesday of the month, a handful of Maple Leaf regulars and the occasional visitor (as I was in November) gather to sample a themed selection of craft brews, or occasionally a spotlighted brewery, as curated by bar manager Scott Fix.

November's tasting was dedicated to Texas beers, and it couldn't have been a better introduction. A particularly informal sort of tasting event, there's no sip-and-spitting among this crowd. It's all full pours, and it all gets finished.

"At some tastings you spit because you don't want to get drunk; here, we don't care about that," one participant explained.

If you encounter a sample you don't care for, the tried-and-true method appears to be dropping a shot of Jack Daniels in it and drinking it anyway. My kind of people.

The hooting hollering atmosphere might belie the fact that Fix knows his beer; he's not to be underestimated. As he puts it: "I'm not an expert. We're just here to have beer together and study it empirically, and by that I mean drink it."
