The Old Tree

Beer quenches the thirst
Of cutting this tree into logs
Its leaves will not fall.

From Rupert Morrish.

Reminder: One week until The Session #8

Attention all Beer Bloggers! This is your reminder that The Session #8 is one week away. The theme is Beer and Food. I want to make sure you have the whole weekend and a full week to experiment with recipes or come up with other ideas for your posts.

I believe this will be a popular Session and there are some distinct opportunities to get some of the Foodie bloggers involved and/or exposed to the vast possibilities of pairing food and beer and cooking with beer. I know I am very excited to see what our multi-talented group of writers, drinkers, and brewers comes up with.

Drink a Beer Day

It’s Drink a Beer Day?!
I don’t know who made it so…
But I’ll celebrate!

Written by Captain Hops.

References: According to at least two websites, September 28 is “Drink a Beer Day”. If anyone has any additional information about who proclaimed this a holiday, please leave me a note in the comments. I am all for wacky holidays and I intend to celebrate in the best way I know how, but I have two problems with this day: “a” and “day”. I really think Beer deserves more than just one day and I don’t plan on stopping with a single beer.
