Hi again beer lovers! Happy Friday, come in and share a cold one with FNBB.
I haven't played the theme song in a while so let's start there:
Last Friday I was out seeing Railroad Earth, a band I really enjoy. I can't think of a beer song they do, but here's another adult beverage:
Beer has been mixed with politics more than usual this week, as three brewers dropped their traditional sponsorship of St Patrick's day parades in New York and Boston because of refusal to allow gay groups.
I have no idea whether the San Francisco parade that I marched in has gay Irish groups, though you'd have to bet on 'yes'. When you're in a parade you only see the groups that are closest to you in the staging area. I also don't know who the beer sponsors were.
The joke is that brewing is 90% cleaning and 10% paperwork. Except that it's not a joke at all.I've got Guinness. What are you drinking? Who's brewing?
