Making the Clubhouse Turn

Chilling Me Softly

So my family and friends feted me to a 50th birthday surprise party last week. My old drinking buddies gave me quite a unique send off by bringing a casket of 50 beers from around the world. They marched it in on solemn shoulders with all the pomp and circumstance befitting a newly minted member of the over-the-hill club. Needless to say these beers won't be chillin' in the casket for long, as some have already gone to their eternal reward.

Since my buddies are not the type for polite thank-you cards, I started this blog (at the insistent urging of my oldest daughter), as a way to say thanks, each and every time I use the church key and help pass another beer into the great beyond. I hope they will enjoy the beer post mortems as much as I enjoy the suds.

Oh yeah, before you go off enjoying these beers on your own, remember to drink responsibly! I wouldn't have made it this far without following that sage advice. I plan on being around another 50 to see what the world keeps brewing.
