Hi beer fans! Happy Friday again. Come on in and have a cold one with us!

Weekly Pint informs me that Monday May 12 will be the start of American Craft Beer Week. I'm sure you'll all find some appropriate way of marking this important event.

In addition to the plethora of local Beer Weeks, you can also celebrate a variety of Beer Days. usvsth3m has compiled this entertaining list: What ridiculous food day is your birthday? They stretch it to include beverages, and I discovered my bday is National Lager Day! I will have to remember to hoist a Sam Adams in honor. Many of the selections are so ridiculous I couldn't help thinking "they made this one up" (there are both National and International days for Nachos, two Potato days and a Vinegar day), but every one I bothered to check had a link to verify it. That list also contains National Homebrew Day (May 4) and Drink A Beer Day (September 28). In honor of the favorite food item of dKos there is a National Pie Day, also days for specific pies including apple, cherry, rhubarb, pumpkin, Boston cream, coconut cream and lemon meringue.

Or you can choose a slightly different list that doesn't limit itself to food days; January 24 is Beer Can Appreciation Day.


This was Hillary, a small loving spirit who departed today.
I've got Firestone Union Jack IPA. What are you drinking? Who's brewing?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
