Let’s all sing, “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,” because it’s National Beer Lovers Day on September 7. Time to break out those German steins, decorative pitchers and very cool beer bottles.
Beer and the process of brewing beer goes back to ancient times in cultures the world over. The crafting of beer carries rich traditions, often requiring years of training and experience in the trade while the methods, grains, and flavors continue to change and evolve over time. Becoming a brewmaster can take years of fine-tuning the skills to make an exemplary beer or even an ale. One sure requirement is a love of beer and the craft. Today, fill your glass with an ice-cold, frothy beer and savor every gulp!
