American Craft Beer Week 2011

My fine friends it is once again time to celebrate what we (well some of us) all live for.... it's time once again for AMERICAN CRAFT BEER WEEK! A time to revel in all the greatness that is Hops, Water, Malt and Yeast. So spend these next seven days paying homage to all of the great craft brewers past an present. Toast a meal with friends and your favorite home brew. Introduce a non-believer to the merits of "better beer". Experiment with unfamiliar beer profiles. Read a book on beer. Subscribe to a beer magazine. Give up that Bud Light (which you should do anyway) for Sierra Summerfest, Harpoon Summer, Brooklyn Summer, Terrapin Sunray Wheat or even a Boulder Kinda' Blue. Walk into a "not so" crafty bar and ask for a Craft Beer. Get in the Craft Beer line at the at Fenway Park, or at game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference finals. Bore your co-workers at the water cooler with a 15 minute dissertation on the origin of India Pale Ales. Buy a Home Brew kit. Join in a local Craft Beer pub crawl. Somehow Tweet  #craftbeer 5 times. Upload a Facebook pic of a Craft Beer you are drinking. Better yet upload pics of  you and your friend having fun drinking Craft Beers.  But most of all please celebrate responsibly. We wanna see you here for AMERICAN CRAFT BEER WEEK 2012. Cheers!
