Happy Friday everyone! Join us for a beverage.
This isn't beer news but I'm going to lead with it anyway.
There are some really damn stupid people in the world.
All over the northern hemisphere, the arrival of cooler weather starts bringing out a new set of beers. Light, quenching summer styles give way to stronger, darker and maltier. Bavarian Festbier, English nut-brown ale and American pumpkin ale make their annual appearance. If you're in the Pacific Northwest near most of America's hopyards, you might find fresh hop pale ale and IPA. Jay Brooks has a nice column about the hop harvest.
Of course if you're a home brewer you needed to brew your October beer in the heat of August, and should already have your winter special fermenting.
I've got Lagunitas Pils and Lagunitas IPA. If you can get Lagunitas beer make sure you read the fine print on the labels and the bottom of the box, it's always entertaining.
Beer speaks. People mumble.What are you drinking? Is it speaking? Is it telling you to have squirrel for dinner?
