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.…

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…

Session 81

Nichole (Nitch to her friends and family) from Tasting Nitch, posed an open ended idea for this month’s session. The idea is Beer Feminist. Or in simpler terms women and beer. The idea is to explore women and their role in beer production and consumption throughout history. This is a pretty cool idea considering at…

Session 80 Back to the Bubble

Session 77

Is it because it is a stark contrast to the fizzy yellow water that we once called beer (before we were taught that beer could have flavor)? I wasn’t sure…

Session 76 Compulsion

This month the Session is hosted by `Glen Humphries from Beer is your Friend. The subject of this month’s Session is Compulsion. What’s this? It’s called The Sessions. It’s also called Beer Blogging Friday. In my head it’s also called ‘‘an excuse for me to crap on and think I’m being entertaining’’. What happens is…

Finding Beer Balance

This month’s session is hosted by Bryan Roth from This is Why I’m Drunk. The topic is Finding Beer Balance. “Is beer your vice? Is beer your reward? Does beer really have to be either? Do you find lifestyle balance through work, hobbies, family or maybe even “Dry Days” like David Bascombe? There are a…

Session 73: Beer Audit

Adam at Pints and Pubs is the host of the March Session.  For This month’s Session it is time to take stock of what you have stored, what you might be aging. So, I’m interested to know if you take stock of the beers you have, what’s in your cellar, and what does it tell…

Session 72: How We Love Beer

This month’s session is hosted by Ryan Newhouse from Montana Beer Finder. In light of it being about two weeks before Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be a good time to talk about how we love beer. Pay attention now, as I said “how,” not “why.” Much has already been discussed about why we…
