Hi beer fans! Happy Friday again. Come on in and have a cold one with us!
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.
I've got Firestone Union Jack IPA. What are you drinking? Who's brewing?
