This was mainly a beer tasting. The beer was dispensed from kegs and poured into plastic or paper cups. There was also boxed wine.

Flying Dog (1). Not bad. There's a medium taste, medium bitter.
They had Bud Light.
They had Dogfish Head (3) 60 Minute IPA. Good beer.
UFO Hefeweizen (2) This beer was light.
They had Dos Equis Ambar (4). I love the taste. (7)
Pinot Grigio (5)

UFO Hefeweizen
Because of the picture of the cap, I deduce that the beer served was the main UFO Hefeweizen brand. The website has useful information, like how to enjoy a UFO Hefeweizen: 1) pour half of the beer onto the side of a clean glass. 2) swirl the bottle three times and pour the rest in. 3) enjoy with a slice of lemon, the head should be generous.

BEER CHARACTERISTICS - UFO HEFEWEIZEN
UFO Hefeweizen is an American unfiltered wheat beer. Perhaps UFO’s initial sensory perception is also its most prominent: a cloudy golden color and a dense, frothy head. The yeast, which has not been filtered out, accounts for the cloudiness of UFO. Wheat malt tends to create a larger head than barley malt, the cereal grain most often used in brewing. When served in a traditional wheat beer glass with a lemon, UFO presents an appealing and distinctive visual image.

The aroma has a faint but clear citrus-like character. This is produced by the special yeast and accounts for the Bavarian tradition of serving hefeweizens with a lemon. The lemon accentuates the yeast’s fruity, tart fragrance. UFO has a soft mouthfeel and a refreshing, light body. The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor. UFO has a clean finish. Unlike some imported hefeweizens, UFO does not have the spicy, tropical flavors typical of European-brewed style.

The overall character is a cloudy appearance with a citrus-like aroma, light body, and clean finish. Serve with a lemon.
