I’m trying to get back in the habit of writing about my daily beer as I’m drinking it, rather than taking notes first and then posting my thoughts. Not only will this help ensure I’m keeping up to date with my reviews, but it should also make for more interesting reading — I find I’m much more passionate about the beer while I’m drinking it; writing from notes just isn’t the same.
No matter when I write, my daily beer drinking has grown into a type of ritual.
What do you think? Should this be the BeerADay.net theme song?
It starts out so promising… let that be a lesson to us all, never start a relationship with a Corona!
Wondering where the latest updates are at? You’re not alone. It seems life can get in the way — but not in the way of drinking beer. I owe all of you several posts about the great beer I’ve been drinking, and I expect to catch up with some quality posts this weekend.
(Once I get through July 4th weekend, my posting schedule should right itself.)
In the meantime, keep watching BeerADay.net and the BeerADay Twitter account for updates. I almost always post a brief note about the beer I’m drinking on Twitter. If you are on Twitter, please give me a follow. And if you AREN’T using Twitter, my most recent updates are always available in the side panel of BeerADay.net.
A few recent beers are missing from my chronology.
I’ll catch up soon, but in case you were wondering: I had Avery Salvation on Sunday (preview – loved it), and Avery India Pale Ale for IPA Monday. On Tuesday, I had another IPA from Boston Beer Works near Fenway Park — after watching the Boston Red Sox dispatch the Toronto Blue Jays.
Since I am behind on those posts, here’s a quick photo of me and my wife after a long night at the park and one drink at Boston Beer Works.
Not quite an even trade, but hey…
We spend a lot of time here talking about beer drinking. And every time you and I take a drink, there’s an unsung hero working behind the scenes, diligently cleaning up our mistakes.
Yes, I’m talking about our abused livers.
For all that your liver has done for you — and doubtless, for all that it will — now’s your chance to really do something nice for your liver.
What’s that you say? No, don’t buy it a drink! That’s like making dinner for your housekeeper and then letting her to take care of the dishes.
You could give up drinking for a few days . . . but it’s hard to enjoy beer without drinking it, so there’s got to be a better way.
A few weeks ago, two good friends of yours-truly posted a husband and wife beer review to The Forum. Marc and Aimée had a blast and it shows in their writing, so I invited them to contribute more.
You’ll find their beer and brewery reviews in a special section of BeerADay.net. Just click on “He Said, She Said” from one of the menus at the top of the page.
Their credentials — they love beer, and they specialize in an endearing banter that I believe you will enjoy as much as I do.
A brief example of their enthusiasm for good beer is portrayed in attached photo. Moments after their marriage, on the way to the reception, I drove them both to The Upland in Bloomington, IN where we took over our usual seats, played darts, and drank beer. At some point we were reminded several hundred guests were waiting on us, and if Marc and Aimée hadn’t been serving a couple of kegs of Upland Beer at the reception who knows if we would have ever left.
At least, that’s how I remember it.
