National Beer Lover’s Day–September 7

Do you remember as a kid whiling away the time on a bus or in your parents car singing “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”?

I’m the only one in my family who does not like the taste of beer. I’ve tried American, Belgian, German, Thai, Japanese, Australian, and Mexican beer and it all tastes like beer. The taste is unbeerable. Blech…..

Beer and the process of brewing beer goes back to ancient times in cultures the world over. The crafting of beer carries rich traditions, often requiring years of training and experience in the trade while the methods, grains, and flavors continue to change and evolve over time. Becoming a brewmaster can take years of  fine-tuning the skills to make an exemplary beer or even an ale. One sure requirement is a love of beer and the craft. Today, fill your glass with an ice-cold, frothy beer and savor every gulp!

Pour yourself a cup of cheer
Just for today make it a beer
In a bottle or a cup
The only phrase is " Bottoms up!"

  1. I do remember singing that song, but I’m sorry that you’ve never tried a British beer. English beer is the best as far as I’m concerned, but I would say that wouldn’t I?

    English ale (Known as Real Ale) is quite different to many other beers in that there’s no gas in it, and for Americans and most Europeans it’s an acquired taste, but I’ve had plenty of practice. Anyway, I’ll drink to National Beer Lover’s Day wherever it is.

  2. I love your poem in honour of the day, Pat and will show my husband! Although he doesnโ€™t drink much beer he wonโ€™t need any convincing today! As for me … Iโ€™ll take a glass of wine, please! Canโ€™t stand beer, even tried Guinness in Ireland … yuck!
