Sunday is National American Beer Day

Sunday is National American Beer Day, and of course we never want to miss an opportunity to discuss beer.

This graphic lists “29 Things You Should Know About Beer.”  Because of it, we have learned that the people who built the pyramids had part of their salary paid in 4 liters of beer.   This might be good intel for venues that offer beer with a side of trivia.

If it seems as if there has been a lot of talk about beer this week, that’s because it is also  Atlanta Beer Week and there are plenty of events around the city this weekend to celebrate.ABW-Main-8.20.13

“29 Things You Should About Beer.”

Sigh……..Yet another AJC blog entry posted without proofreading. This is so very sad considering the post is only 3 short paragraphs.

What are they paying you with? Candy?

“I Like Beer”
Songwriters: Tom T. Hall
“In some of my songs I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears

(Chorus)
I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer
(He likes beer)

My wife often frowns when we’re out on the town
And I’m wearing a suit and a tie
She’s sipping vermouth and she thinks I’m uncouth
When I yell as the waiter goes by

(Chorus)

Last night I dreamed that I passed from the scene
And I went to a place so sublime
Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer
Then they turned it all into wine (awww)

I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, champagne costs too much, and vodka puts my mouth in gear.
Aw, this little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I love beer
(Yes, he likes beer).”

@Tea Party Meber – Anheuser-Busch InBev, which produces Bud Light, is a Belgian/Brazilian company headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil. While Bud Light is produced all around the US, the company is not an American-owned business. So if you really want to celebrate American beer, have a local beer from the many breweries right here in Atlanta.

I smell an impostor on this thread. Or should i say ‘impotor’?

If you’re going to try to troll, at least be believable…
