The Beer Belly: Be The Beer!

"Ah, good ol' trustworthy beer. My love for you will never die."
   -Homer Simpson

This month: Cinco de Mayo

On the 5th of May, the boys from Brian's Belly fiesta along with our Mexican amigos for Cinco de Mayo. Many years ago, our traditional gathering was organized by Belly Buddy John Carroll who has an unhealthy--some would say obsessive--infatuation with Salma Hayek. The holiday gave him an excuse to have a big party at his house and talk endlessly about her without too much eye-rolling from his wife.

Of course, if you're Mexican, this day symbolizes the strength and determination of the Mexican people during the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Either way... bebemos como pescados.

    3.73 average, 71 votes

    I sometimes feel like the prodigal son when I’m out in the pubs or at my local beer warehouse, pulling down bottles of every strange brew I’ve never before sampled. After all the sampling, and all the experimenting, I often find myself coming home and popping open a bottle of a tried and true favorite masterpiece. Such is the case with Anchor Liberty Ale.

    3.74 average, 82 votes

    I’ve been drinking a fair amount of Abita beer over the last month or two. I’m trying to identify a house signature while at the same time becoming familiar with the entire Abita family of beers. It’s not that I find Abita particularly fascinating — I don’t, mostly because their beers tend towards lighter bodied brews than I usually prefer, but I enjoy the tasting challenges anyway. My latest foray into the Abita product line is Purple Haze.

    3.66 average, 73 votes

    While sharing his wisdom on life with Bart one day, Homer Simpson told his son to never be afraid of weasling out of things. “It’s what separates men from animals…except for weasels.” he said. I couldn’t agree more, and while I’ve been weasling out of finishing up with my tasting notes on the Abita product line, I’m finally figuring that maybe I should be un-weasel like today and pop open a cool Abita Amber and see how it stacks up against the rest of the Abita stable of brews.
