Beer tasting tray

During a fun Saturday of sampling the different types of beer at a local brewery, my friend and I started critiquing the wood tray that held the beer samples. My sampling friend had recently remodeled a room in his basement as a tasting room. So I thought I could build a better tray and add the features we had discussed. We wished we had a snack between samples to neutralize the tastes buds. So I added a couple of small snack bowls. Since we would be sampling different beers each time, we would need a place to write the beer name in front of each sample. So I added a dry erase strip. I made 8 trays for my friend and was going to give as a Christmas present, but soon realized there would be a lot of opportunities to have beer sampling events between now and Christmas. So delivered these over the weekend.
