It Finally Happened

It took a little while to get to this point, but I finally took the plunge. From this moment on I will no longer be posting at this location. For those of you who enjoy my writings and meanderings, I can now be found at 10th Day Publishing. Over the past year (maybe less for…

Just in Time for Beer Week

Beer Week in Kalamazoo Michigan officially kicks off on Saturday January 11th. But there was an unofficial kick off on Friday the 10th. I spent a few minutes at a couple of the unofficial events tonight. The first happened at Bell’s General Store. The General Store is part of the complex that makes up the…

Upcoming Events

This is going to be a quick post. I am still running a little behind from the holidays (add in the blizzard of 14 and it gets a bit ugly around here). We are surviving the blizzard fairly well, but wow is it cold. Every now and then I do feel a bit like I…

Overrated/ Underrated Does it really matter?

Wow, that was a long holiday. I hope you had a great holiday season and everything was merry and bright. Right now I feel like I a fish discovering that it can breath underwater (figure that one out). To get back into the swing of things I am jumping right into the Session for January.…

Merry Christmas

Beer Money

Today is the first Friday of the month, which means it is time for the monthly Session. For Session 82 Steve Lamond from Beers I’ve Known poses something a little different. The subject this month is the beer yarn. Tell a tale relating to beer in someway. Maybe an anecdote or a fun beer adventure…

Where were you on Repeal Day?

You may not be aware of this, but December 5th is the official date in 1933 when Prohibition was repealed in the United States. The law was a weird one where by federal rule, booze was legal again. But the states have jurisdiction over how alcohol is handled within their boundaries. This has led to…

Holidays

Taking a short break for the holidays. We shall return next week on our normally scheduled days. In the meantime, if you be the sort to enjoy a trip to a crowded bar, enjoy the busiest bar night of the year. May you find solace for your hangover with turkey tomorrow.

Thanksgiving and Beer

Recently my friend Susan from Finding Our Way Now put out a list of great wines to try for your Thanksgiving gatherings. It’s a great idea and an easy way to get an idea of what you might want to have with your turkey and stuffing. In our conversation for the post she turned to…
