Gooood Morning NBS. There is no better way to start a day of New Beer consumpification than to ponder this observation written by Amanda B. Reckonedwith, in her book, Any Porter In A Storm -- "Laggardly lager lovers lead largely less luminous lives, as ale aficionados ably achieve an admirably assertive acumen." Don't you agree? Welcome to New Beer Sunday, extra early the days are long and the nights are longer and this is not week 600 it is week 590 edition. Those of you expecting this to be #600, sorry, but I am going to get the numerical sequence back in order Wooo hoo, bear with me through a couple thoughts. Today I will do some foul, dangerous, heavy work, like every day on my job, before I return to join y'all. I am the last chance for a lot of recyclables that make it into the waste stream. Half a million pounds rescued over the years is but a drop, maybe two drops, in an ocean sized problem. More sobering to realize it is impossible to do more than barely counterbalance what my family have used. To all those who try to counterbalance, thank you! Man, does make ya thirsty, though, know it? I know how I spell relief. B-E-E-R We love... make that LOVE beer here, of course that's true. But do we love beer enough? Beer takes nothing and adds back, destroys nothing and creates greatness. It is our homage to collaboration and sustainable living on earth. Do we realize how it is part of how our race survived and culture thrived? Do we see it as restorative of mind and body? Do we understand its place in history? And even more to the point, do we see our place in history, living in perhaps the most vibrant and amazingly delicious and wonderful point in the long, enjoyable existence of beer? Folks, this is the golden age of fine fermentation, right here in 2016, right here on BA this Sunday in America and the world. Today I am excited to report we are part of a delicious revolution that takes history and culture and multiplies it with science and ingenuity, and I raise this glass of New Beer today, NBS #590, to our newest generation of Fine Beer Brewers. Cheers! How about you, have a new beer to try? Well, now is the time and this is the place. Why not pull up a chair to the virtual table and crack a new brew open with us, and tell us about it. How do you like it? Would you recommend it? What does it taste like? Remind you of any other beers? How's it smell, how's the mouthfeel, is it refreshing? What are the features you like? Or don't like? Have fun with diggin' what your beer's all about, and checkin' out the beers and thoughts of the rest of us. And have fun with leaving pics too, we all really love that beer porn. Thanks for keeping NBS fresh, fun, and informative for 11+ years.
