Session 17 - Drinking Anti-Seasonally

Hi all,

First I would like to thank Rob at Pfiff!! for hosting this months session. Second I am going to announce to the world (or atleast the beer community) my new blog "A World of Brews". What better way to kick off the first post on a new blog then a first friday event the session. I haven't finished the design yet but if I don't start sometime I probably will never be done. Without further ado her is this months thoughts on Drinking Anti-Seasonally!!

I never really thought about this topic before this year. Do I have a seasonal preferences in beer? I first had a discussion with a few people in my running club and they all said they loved IPA's in the summer and Imperial Stouts in the winter. I said I didn't really care I was more interested in trying different styles and brands of craft brews. So far this summer. I have had everything from Barleywines to Imperial Stouts. When I get done with the lawn or coming back from the store I look whats in my fridge and I think about what sounds good or looks interesting. I will say that most of the time summer or winter it is a hoppy IPA or DIPA. That is my favorite style and every season is IPA time. I also do enjoy other "summer time" beers all year around. This includes Kolsch, Hefeweizen, and Pilzners.

I guess I am a rebel doing my own thing. Kind of like a chunky James Dean. ;-) I guess after really thinking about it I do lean towards lighter beers in the summer but I am not sure its because of the heat but it may be who knows. I say don't think seasons think good beer and drink what sounds good to you.

Peace out until next month!!! Thanks again Rob!!

Matt C.
