It must be Fall

The start of the school year means one thing to most parents, high school football season. If you have school age children they are probably hanging out at the game because that is where everyone else is. If you are a parent of a player you are most likely at the game cause well, that’s…

Spreading the Love

We just celebrated labor day, so fall must be around the corner. Heck, in some places it is already here. Autumn is probably my favorite season. The change in the air as we prepare for winter, the smells, the harvest, and of course apple cider. Cider like beer and wine is a big part of…

Air Drop

Every now and then I run across some really great pictures. It is even better when other people find some cool ones and send them to me. Such is the case with the couple pics I have for tonight. This first picture¬†is from¬†June 13,1944. When an English brewery decides to send the troops in Normandy…

Ken Burns Prohibition

Do you find yourself surfing Netflix and then adding a bunch of movies to your queue that you are holding to “watch later,” then it takes you ages to get to them? We have a tendency to do that. I have had the PBS documentary Prohibition sitting on my queue for ages now. I finally…

End of Summer

It comes around the time of the first snow fall, or maybe a little before then that we start counting down the days till summer returns. Of course in the hot, humid days we forget how much we longed for the warmth of summer. But even then when we are fighting everything in life to…

This post was originally published in 2010. In the process of updating much of my older content I find that some items will be getting facelifts. The Beer Prayer “Our lager, which art in barrels, Hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drinking, (I will be drinking), at home as it is in the tavern.…

Biodiversity or What the “F” is a Pluot

I am doing some work that I should have done a while ago. When I transferred the blog from Blogger to WordPress, the video posts didn’t transfer how I would like them to and I also kept some posts that really shouldn’t exist in this space anymore. So instead of a video tonight I am…

Pot This is Kettle

I ran across an interesting article on Beerpulse (Beerpulse article link)earlier today. It is one of those things that make you wonder just how much time beer executives have on their hands. As it turns out ABInbev (Budweiser and many others) has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission about Miller/Coors false advertising. I…

For the Weekend

I have passed this bill board I don’t know how many times. I finally remembered to get the pic the other day. This is a great thought to take into our weekend. And on that note, it is time for a pint…
