National Beer Day

Today’s a day to shout and cheer And naturally, to have a beer For it’s the day, across the land, When Prohibition lost its stand. We owe it all to F.D.R. And whether you are in a bar, At home or at a tailgate party, Fill your glass and drink up hearty. Let us toast to Franklin D. For bringing joy to you and me. So be it lager, I.P.A. Or stout, let’s shout Hip Hip Hooray! And savor every precious drop Beginning with that foamy top For fellow beer folk everywhere Know nothing else can quite compare.

A big thanks to monks who found a way to make Germany's contaminated water into something babies could drink (and still do)! (For German monks, wine took too long to mature). Well done, Ilene! Sorry I missed you yesterday, but was out celebrating! Aloha! Rico
