Have a swift pint!

 Cheers! Celebrate National Drink Beer Day!

I don’t know about you, but I love a nice tall pint. Of course the love affair had a bit of a rocky start. I don’t know any young person who takes a sip of foamy goodness for the first time and says, “Gosh, that was delish!”  I suppose it could happen, but I sincerely doubt it.


I started drinking beer in college, at house parties, out of day-glo colored cups. I only drank it because I was too young to buy anything else to drink. I almost shudder to think about what kind of beer it might have been. Pabst Blue Ribbon? Milwalkee? Schlitz? Genny Ale? :O) That last beer is a shout out to all my western New York homies. lol

I remember that college beer tasting acidic, bitter and pretty much disgusting. But I paid $5 for my wrist band and I was there to have fun, dangit!

As I have gotten older and tried new beers, my taste for it has really ripened and now I get excited at the mention of a good irish stout or a nice mellow brown ale.

Basically the moral of my tale is this… If you love beer, raise a glass today with some good company… and if you think you hate beer, ask a few friends what they like and why, and try one tonight. You just might be surprised!
