Makes me feel like I was there
In the days of old

Just Beer

Telling old stories
I can barely remember.
Bring another round.

The Session: Beer and Memories

Youth

Feeling kind of old
I grab a pack of cheap beer
and relive my youth

Indiscretion

Remember that time
We drank all that Beast and then
Skinny dipped? Er… No.

Fuji-san

That can of Kirin
We carried up Mount Fuji
And drank at sunrise

Beer is all about creating new memories or reminiscing about old ones. Memories are funny things. Some are crystal clear, some are hazy. Memories are often inextricably linked to the senses with long forgotten scraps suddenly floating to the surface with the exposure to a sound, a smell, a sight, or a flavor. Here are a couple of beer memories as they were or may have been.

Cheers!

Don’t they know who I am?

Almost thirty six
And I’m still getting carded
Am I blessed or cursed?
