While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Born in the U.S.A.! - October 27 is National American Beer Day.
Grab your best pals, wander down to your favorite bar and raise a glass to American-made beer. More than 1,700 breweries in the U.S. are churning out and crafting your favorite beverage, so give them a proper salute.
Beer has long been part of our culture, dating back to colonial times, although things almost skidded to a halt when Prohibition loomed large in the 20s. Luckily, the underground scene kept churning out substitutes, even if they paled in comparison.
Once Prohibition was repealed, large-scale breweries became an American industry. These names still stand today, although the movement led to an exciting new beer culture: brewpubs. These "craft breweries" make distinctive beers and serve them at the same location.
Here in the U.S., we're proudest of creating American Pale Ale, steam beer and cream ale. So share with us, what are your favorite American-brewed beers? Do you have a brewpub you'll always stand by?
And today, we're assuming it's 5 o 'clock all day.
What a good idea! for a fun blog on Mickeys beer caps see http://mickeysbeercaps.blogspot.com/
People Are Calmer On Full Stomachs.
What are you? An unemployed writer for fortune cookies?
Go St. Louis !!!! Can't wait til morning – it's Miller Time !!!! I Love Bud Light !!!!
24/7/365 it's ALWAYS Beer Day! Spell it out if you're with me.
Hmmmm, no micro breweries around that I know of so i guess I'll pick up a six pack of Lone Star on the way home.
Where craft beers are concerned, we have an embarrassment of riches here in Michigan, with brewers like Bell's, Founders, Short's and scores of small business brewpubs to choose from. Unfortunately, I drank a wee bit too much last night, so I'm not sure I'm celebrating tonight.
I'm lucky to live in Delaware and have DogFish Head beer everywhere. Even within driving distance of their brew pub. Jeann must not know much about American beer (other than BudMillerCoors, lol)
Lucky you! I would love to live near DogFish! They brew the most unique and wonderful tasting beers!
Now there's a contradiction in terms...
Eff you!!...unless you're Irish or Australian.
Now this is my kind of day! :)
Perfect. We have a great local brewery. I'll find myself there tonight.
Mmmmmmm-Ice Cold American Brewski–Can't be beat.
So true...so effing true (although Victoria Bitter comes in pretty close too.)
Scientists have discovered that beer actually does make ugly people look better. Also – Nine months from this day of the year, there is a spike in childbirth.
And now back to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy...
Mix this with yesterday's 5@5 and make yourself a Bloody Beer. I'd try it.
I wonder if it goes better with an ale or a lighter brew. Mmmm, time to experiment.
I'll drink to that!
