Did you get to enjoy Savor this past weekend? Unfortunately I was not there (this year) – hoping to go next year.
Beer awareness and de-demonizing beer is a good battle I plan to continue to help fight.
Beer – just like one bad snowmobiler, one bad teacher or one bad apple – is not the devil. It’s the one ‘baddie’, not the whole group. Over the years people have come to blame beer as a scape goat. Untrue. (Look instead to the corrupt sheepherder.)
Indeed, we all need to take FULL responsibility for our own actions, and the consequences of those actions.
Savor, I believe, is all about raising awareness that beer is a premium, affordable luxury. That, incidentally and happily, helped America grow and thrive.
Hats off, I say! Savor your beer (don’t guzzle or slam it) and you’ll be making progress. Beer is tasty, luscious, refreshing, satiating beverage. Enjoy it as such.
