Imagine a collective of people from all walks of life, gathering together in a city with 40 microbreweries, with one commonality, and that is their love for beer.
As I arrived at the hotel in Portland on Friday evening, I entered the Alaska room where the Night of Many Bottles was held. It was a fitting title for the night.
A week in Philly for Philly Beer week simply isn’t enough.
Having just finished its 4th year of all things beer, it’s easy to see how Philly became the city that started the trend. There were so many events, I honestly didn’t know which to choose.
The mullet, Disco Music, socks with toes, man perms, jeans with the zippers up the legs, a bandana tied around one of those zippered legs, shoulder pads, goldfish swallowing (really?), "Just Say No"…thankfully, all just fads.
The parallels between beer and cheese have started a gastronomic revolution. Not only is beer versatile with cheese, it’s usually inspired. The idea of pairing cheese and beer isn't a new one, even in the U.S. Pizza and beer is a popular American tradition, and one that I don’t see going out of style.
Salute is to express commendation of or praise; to address with expressions of kind wishes, courtesy, or honor - to give a sign of respect, courtesy, or goodwill to greet. Yeah, that about sums it up.

Hamilton’s Tavern is a traditional neighborhood alehouse located in the heart of the historic South Park area of San Diego.
Green beer has a completely different context today than it did ten years ago. The following breweries don’t make green-colored beer, but in terms of environmental impact, its beers are as green as they come.
The image of a fresh, ice cold, frosted glass full of light beer has been imprinted into our mindset with just as much force as, well, millions of dollars of beer advertisers can shove down our collective throats. The very concept of deliberately aging a beer contradicts everything we see and hear in most beer advertisements. Such fizzy, yellowish lagers will indeed suffer with a few months of age. The most common, mass-market beers such as Budweiser, Heineken, Stella Artois and Corona, are designed to be drunk as soon as they leave the brewery.
