It seems that beer bloggers around the world should have something similar. So letâ€™s start one, an event that will occur on the first Friday of every month. It doesnâ€™t have to have a name (yet) or a logo (like wine), just participants who want to have a little fun and donâ€™t mind learning a little along the way.
On Friday, March 2nd, the first instalment of this yet-to-be-named beer blog meme will take place, and the inaugural theme will be “Not Your Father’s Irish Stout”. Since my father drinks Labatt Blue, pretty much any stout would do in my case, but the rules specify that we have to stay away from the Big Three: Guinness, Murphyâ€™s or Beamish. Otherwise, anything goes.
So check back here (and here, and here, and here, and probably here, and lots of these places) in just over a month to see what we all end up drinking. Maybe I can even convince my wife to get in on the action – she likes the black stuff even more than I do.
Oh, yeah – I should mention that I’m off to Seattle tomorrow for a meeting on Friday, and I plan to indulge in beer & food geekery on Friday night and Saturday. And of course, since I’m from the land of the CN Tower, I will point at their puny Space Needle and laugh. Ha!
