Beer

Summer is arriving soon, and continuing on a theme from last year, it's time for more beers. Specifically, pale ales, India pale ales, pilsners, and stout.

Beer is every bit as complex and intellectual as wine. Its image has just been ruined by the callow palates of mindless, douchebag college students, binge drinking because they've never tasted alcohol before, and that somehow its socially revered to puke until you black out.

I'll always remember that Boddington's pale ale I drank in a downtown pub a few years ago. Very complex, with sweetness from the grain, and bitter character from the hops on the finish. Delicious.

Check back, much more beer will be featured here soon!
