I’ve been challenged to consume only Minnesota beers for the rest of the year.
As an advocate for beer in Minnesota, this doesn’t seem like a terrible idea, once one gets past the notion that I like a lot of beers from around the US and abroad. Could I do it?
Probably. Maybe. I have a 5 HopSlams in the chilly room below my front steps, a Trois Pistoles and La Fin Du Monde in my fridge… two Miller Lite’s that I probably won’t touch anyway. There are some other beers like last year’s Bigfoot, Bell’s Batch 7000 and Old Horizontal that would probably be fine if they aged another year. Dawn could drink the last can of Newcastle…
Between our brewpubs and our breweries, we’ve got a lot of good beer in Minnesota. I’m a homebrewer, as are some of my friends. Whaddya’ think? 6 months? The rest of 2007? Let me drink the last 7 non-MN beers and consider Autumn Brew Review a “holiday” and I think I could do it.
No, I’m not drunk. Cold, perhaps, but not drunk.
