Six beery reasons to say thanks

A six pack of reasons for U.S. beer drinkers to be thankful (no flag waving, but U.S. because this is where we celebrate Thanksgiving today):

1) The imperial pint glass.

2) Our local breweries.

3) The Rule of Saint Benedict.

4) The farmers who grow the ingredients for our beer.

5) That Michael Jackson chose to be Michael Jackson rather than Robert Parker.

6) No Reinheitsgebot in America.

Can you think of others?

    The conviviality of fellowship that fine beer engenders?

    3 worries me – you’re not getting all bible-bashing on us are you? 😉

    Based upon the smiley I imagine you know that the Rule of St. Benedict decrees that monks live by the work of their hands – which is why seven Trappist monasteries still have breweries.

    not to mention that the rule sets a nice large volume of beer for the daily ration of the brother.
