- 3/17/19 UPDATE -- We've updated the permissions for our "Football" and "Commit to the G" recruiting message boards. We aim to be the best free board out there and that has not changed. We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.
Whew! Just in the nick of time
With all the wailing and gnashing of teeth the past couple of days, we can finally find something around which to rally.
NATIONAL DRINK BEER DAY
National Drink Beer Day toasts that malty elixir on September 28th, annually. Just as the Oktoberfest season comes to an end, the day reminds us to enjoy the world’s most popular adult beverage.
Beer lovers have more selection than ever before in the ale and lager market. An explosion in the craft beer industry keeps the competition and the flavors robust, churning out new flavors seasonally. Beer connoisseurs quench their thirst with flavors drastically different from their grandfather’s beers. Rootbeer to raspberry, caramel, and hints of herbs all tickle the palate when it comes to artisanal beers.
However, you don’t have to drink a special brew to celebrate the day. Drink your favorite stand by or branch out – whichever you prefer. Around the country, and from around the world, a wide assortment of beers offers plenty of ways to celebrate. Whether you call your mug full of brew a barley pop or cerveza, the day is worth celebrating.
HOW TO OBSERVE #DrinkBeerDay
The best way to celebrate is by enjoying a glass of beer. As always, celebrations are better when surrounded by others who celebrate with you. So, invite friends, family, coworkers, too. Join them at a local pub or tavern. Or invite them to your home.
Another way to celebrate includes recognizing your servers, bartenders and brewers. Celebrate them with a toast as you take your first frothy sip.
No matter how you #CelebrateEveryDay, drink responsibly and use #DrinkBeerDay when posting on social media.
NATIONAL DRINK BEER DAY HISTORY
While National Day Calendar® continues researching the origin of this delicious beverage holiday, it’s interesting to note it lands on the birth of Arthur Guinness, the founder of Guinness Brewery. However, if you’re looking for more ways to celebrate, we have you covered.
And, just in case you get a little hungry while celebrating, it's also:
NATIONAL STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE DAY
Each year on September 28 strawberry lovers get to enjoy their favorite fruit in the form of pie on National Strawberry Cream Pie Day.
Even though strawberries are out of season, the grocers always make sure to stock up on frozen and canned so we can make pies. How else do we keep making fruit pies all year long? Those of us who planned ahead preserved strawberries just for this occasion. And of course, some fresh are still available here and there.
Strawberry cream pie can be made in many different ways. Some recipes use a custard or pudding base with strawberries either folded in or on top. Others are made with cream cheese or whipped cream. Whichever you prefer, the strawberry cream pie is a delicious treat.
