Happy IPA Day!

So much to share, so little time!

First, my pub of choice, the 909 Saloon in Fredericksburg, VA, will be celebrating the first event of our newly implemented beer club.  A preferred brewery of mine, Smuttynose, will be hosting a tap takeover tomorrow night, Friday, August the 3rd. 

Unfortunately, due to military obligations, I will be unable to make it.  But I encourage you to do so.  

And, coming soon, a website dedicated to our new Beer Club.  Pictures from tomorrow's event will surely be included on the site. 

As for me?

And why? 

Despite my preference for hoppy beers, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout may be my favorite beer of the moment.  It deserves a professional review but, at the moment, I will just say that this brew provides a big taste without being overwhelming, and finishes cleanly.  It's nearly a perfect beer. 

So, in honor of the holiday (for beer enthusiasts, at least), I picked up some old dependables on the way home:
