Glasses of light and dark beer on a pub background.

Some of my favorite things to do in the summer include cut my grass, wash my car, any outdoor house work, and I even love to take my dog on a walk around the neighborhood when I get home from work.  Of course, if there wasn’t such thing as beer I wouldn’t do any of it.  Ok I’m partially kidding, but it is International Beer Day!  Unless I’m doing those activities I just mentioned, I’m pretty picky about my beer.  I wouldn’t really consider myself a beer snob, but I just like what I like.  I’m not a fan of seltzers and I hate most IPA’s and sours.  If summers weren’t so hot I’d drink Guinness every single day.  Any Oktoberfest or pumpkin-flavored beer should only be sold after labor day and into the first week of November.  I’m sure you have different feelings on particular beers so pour a pint and enjoy these fun facts as we celebrate International Beer Day!
