I was recently asked to come up with some ideas for special events we could host here in the store. The first thing to come to mind was, naturally, Oktoberfest. Too many times here in the States the party is celebrated in the wrong time of year. In Munich, Germany it’s a 16-day party ending on October 2 or 3 depending on which day German Unity Day falls. I’ve seen some American celebrations fall as late as October 15!
Another bright, sunny day in early September brought us yet another fun and successful Emerald Coast Beer Fest and all of its attendant embarrassment of riches. Can there be too much of a good thing? There certainly can when you’re a beer enthusiast who’s trying his best to cover the event and sample as much as possible while not getting sloshed over the massive selection provided by the regional home brewers.
Each generation feels that theirs was the best when it comes to the toys that define it. With the current emphasis leaning heavily upon digital technology, I think that us thirty-somethings can safely lay claim to the late 70s-80s being the greatest time to have been a kid.

People often ask me what my favorite beer is, to which I reply, “What day is today?” There are simply too many styles, flavors and moods to fit each that it’s almost impossible to narrow it down to just one or two.
