While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
October 27 is American Beer Day - whatever style is on tap, whether lager, ale, IPA, dark or light, just make sure it's a domestic.
Today, we're one nation under beer so raise a glass and chug-a-lug to the stars and stripes.
Founding Father Benjamin Franklin might have said it best: "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

The quote about beer attributed to Ben Franklin is actually an often used mis-quotation. The actual quote was in reference to wine. . .
"Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy."
American Beer day? I think I can handle jumping on that bandwagon. Now do we have to stick to American beer, or as Americans, can we just drink any beer?
