National Beer Lover’s Day

Friday, September 7th, 2018 is Beer Lover’s Day! A holiday celebrating us! Let us all drink the best beer, with the best people, in celebration of ourselves and the love for beer.

For all of you that don’t know, there has been a lot of experimental brewing going on. Stockholm is brewing beer from purified sewage water, The Order of Yoni is selling beer made from the lactic acid bacteria from the vagina of a “unique woman”, and Nørrebro Bryghus has made “Pisner,” a brew made from 50,000 gallons of pee that was used to fertilize malted barley. What is next?! Is the beer industry taking things too far? Tell us what you think!

Instead of trying these crazy concoction, modern brews, how about buy some of your favorite beer, toss them back, or craft up some fantastic beer cocktails! You have options people. Here goes…
