Happy New Beer

ottercreek-octoberfestOktober Fest: Otter Creek: American amber/red ale

So I start, challenged by my daughter.  A couple of months ago, sitting in a small beer place in New York, a friend looked over the chalkboard and asked which beers I had already had.  “Most of them.  I’ve drank a lot of beers.”  My daughter with her quick retort said, “it’s nice to be good at something.”

Not beer.  Beers.  Different kinds of beers.  Not large quantities of beers.  But it got me to thinking, this moment.  What about a proving it in writing.  What about a year of trying a different beer each day.

Oktoberfest…the amber equivalent of Vermont in mid-october..starts with a creamy head, punched by a quick tartness and the arching into a pleasant fall of yellow/brown mellow.

Rating: half-full.

    I think I’d rather have the rye.

    ‘A year of trying a different beer every day’… now that is an aspiration I can get behind.

    Not the easiest blog to find, but now having uncovered this beer commentary, I look forward to reading about a year in the life of the beer-inspired.

    Last summer there was someone on LinkedIn who kept agonizing over her self-set goal to blog every day for a month. Maybe she wasn’t as clear-sighted about her subject matter as you are. Good luck and Happy imbibing. (Oh, BTW, I know you are in a big city, but if you have trouble locating anything you’re seeking, let me know; believe it or not, I may be able to find it here in the burbs.)
