Beer links and a belated Earth Day message

This was the first image when
I searched Google for Beer Earth Day.
I don't know what it means but
I know that I like it (Original here)
We didn't have an Earth Day write up, I blame myself for missing it, but to be honest I probably would have gotten a little preachy and would have to be bludgeoned off my soapbox. So instead here is the Reader's Digest version. Being a good steward of the Earth should be a no brainer for beer drinkers. Without proper management of resources we can't make beer and as we all know without beer our civilization will fall apart. So there is your Earth day message, take care of the planet so we can continue drinking awesome beer.

More New Orleans restaurants improve beer offerings (
I was at the Chart House in Alexandria this last weekend with my wife and her parents. The restaurant was all proud of their wine list. "The best in DC," our waiter assured us. I would have been more impressed if they would have had one local or regional beer behind the bar. Chart House fix your beer selection! Anyway good for New Orleans!

We are in the last full week of Belgian beer month so look for one more review this Wednesday. Tomorrow you can expect my write up on the LivingSocial Beerfest event this last Sunday (Spoiler: It was wet.) Thursday I'll deliver on the other half of the Belgian beer definition that should have showed up last week. (I blame my in-laws since they were in town.)

  1. Beer and bad weather, just read that 1 dead and several injured when a storm blew through and 200+ people were under a beer tent, glad we did not experience this at the LivingSocial Beerfest.
