Craft Beer Week

Monday, May 13, 2013

Christmas is nice and all, but around these parts of the web, our Season of Joy is American Craft Beer Week!

This is a week of celebrations and revelry from Coast to Coast, border to border.  Click here to find events near you.

There's a manifesto.

At 8:00pm EST this Thursday, there's a nation-wide toast.

And don't forget to change your Facebook and Twitter profile pics in acknowledgment of celebration of the holiest week here at ATK.

AND AS IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH....

As of last Thursday evening, home brewing is legal in all 50 states!

From the presser:

On Thursday, May 9, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed homebrew legalization bill HB9 into law, making Alabama the 50th state to legalize homebrewing.

Post-Prohibition, homebrewing was not federally legal until President Jimmy Carter signed H.R. 1337 on October 14, 1978, which officially went into effect on February 1, 1979. Shortly after that bill was signed, the American Homebrewers Association was formed by Charlie Papazian and Charlie Matzen to promote and celebrate homebrewing. Since then, the AHA has taken a leading role in advocating for homebrew rights and supporting the legislative efforts of local homebrew communities.
Celebrate beer!

A worthy celebration. Some day I may try and brew my own. I have always wanted to do this.

If you wish to brew your own, you've come to the right blog.

I heard the owner of this here blog knows some about brewing.

Someone here brews beer and it's even drinkable. You may even want a second.

FYI - Since I have nothing to contribute to brewing, I recommend contributing two to three quality store-bought beers to the fridge for every home brew one drinks.

It's a general guidline.

Ah, being late to this holy season, may I offer this blessing.

Bless, † O Lord, this creature beer, which You have brought forth from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of Your holy Name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord. - Amen.

The beer is then sprinkled with holy water and joyfully consumed.
