Philly Beer Week

I guess most of you have heard by now that Philly is hosting it’s beer week on March 7-March 16. Ginger will be by as we get closer with more details. There is talk of a quizzo event as part of it. I will keep you updated. But in the meantime, I just thought you might want to check out the specifics. I would link you to the write up by Joe Sixpack on today’s, but I try to avoid linking to things that have little images that pop up in front of the words trying to sell you stuff. It drives me crazy. However, here’s a nice little quote about beer from Cliff Clavin:
“Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this… A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers.”
