The Perfect Beer World

Announcing the Session #69!

That’s right… I get to host the lucky Session number 69… and it so happens to be my birthday on November 2, so feel free to buy me a beer so I can have the most joyous time reading all your blog posts on this month’s session…

Ever feel like there are many things in this world that are backwards, upside down, wrong… that just don’t make sense?

Like local craft beer not being considered ‘domestic’ in the menu of many restaurants in the US…

Or like having a beer that doesn’t taste very good have the largest market share…

… among other things…

… but, hey. This. World. Is. Not. Perfect!

At least there are many things I would like to see change for the better… many of which are already happening… more micro-breweries are spawning and pissing off the big boys…

Not that I wish anyone bad, but I like seeing:

a) more people share the wealth of this industry rather than just a few companies

b) passionate people brewing because they love the craft more than they care about pleasing the pockets of shareholders and

c) micro-breweries actually getting involved with the community and hold events that benefit non-profits…

I raise a glass to New Belgium for holding their Clips of Faith events!

I like seeing breweries treat other breweries as friends and not competition… love all the collaboration brews coming out!!

I like attending beer festivals where it’s not about making money, but rather to unselfishly share and give… to enjoy beer… good tasting beer, that is… and bringing community together…

Most beer festivals I go to will mark the number of beers you have to make sure everyone gets enough… but they also want to make sure the beer is gone! and they will just share… and give unselfishly…

I know I didn’t have just one beer at the last beer festival I went to… —>

The Perfect Beer World… that’s how I picture it…

So with that being said… what is something you would like to see change… something that will take us closer to the Perfect Beer World?

The topic is wide open… even if you think that what you want to change for the better is not important or ridiculous… share it!

I have personally been looking into gruit ales… few beer drinkers pay attention to gruut or even ‘real ales’ and would love to see more micro-breweries include these on their menus…

This happened after my dream of being the world’s biggest hophead came dwindling down as explained in this blog post: Silly Boys IPA’s are For Girls!

So there you have it… what would you change to lead us into the Perfect Beer World? or how do you describe the Perfect Beer World? It’s your world too you know… Post your comments below with a link to your blog post… If you are unsure how to Participate on “The Session” check out this page: http://brookstonbeerbulletin.com/the-sessions/

Getting a head start with the round up, but feel free to keep posting and I’ll update…
