It’s been awhile out here. I tend to add articles to the Facebook, but as for longer posts I have just been lacking on writing some solid blogs. So what has been going on? Well, in short… A lot. Even when I am not updating this or Facebook, I am combing the world over to look for new brews to experience. Just last month I was in Cape Town, South Africa drinking their local fare. A month before that? I was in Guatemala drinking Gallo and other Central American lagers. It does not matter where I travel though, Texas brewed beers will always have a special place in my heart. In my last beer of the month delivery (beerofthemonth.com) I received some beer from France (Grimbergen). It reminded me a lot of last summer when I spent three weeks in France drinking their local beers and developing an appreciation for European style lagers. The crux of that trip is that sometimes (a lot of times) less is actually more. Since that trip last summer I have been delving into simple, clean, fresh beers from around the country. I still appreciate complex stouts and porters, but there is something wonderful about a simple hefeweizen or American Blonde Ale. Simple is good. For all of the complexities in this life that we deal with day to day, it is nice to have some beer in the fridge that isn’t.

I’ll leave you with this parting thought for the day, when was the last time that you had a simple, refreshing beer for the sake of having a refreshing beer. Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

 

Also, I will get better about keeping this current. If I don’t…. well, remind me.
