It’s National Beer Day! Today we celebrate one of the oldest libations in the world. The gift that came from some lazy person leaving his barley out in a bucket too long after a rainy night and a week later exclaiming “this is delicious!”
Okay, that’s probably not exactly how it happened. But beer has been around a long time. Some say as long as 13,000 years. And this wise old concoction deserves our respect.
Some historians say beer helped build civilizations because builders were paid for their work in beer. If we could only pay our mortgages with it.
Beer brings people together, helps us unwind at the end of a long day, and…if you went to a party school like I did…made for many an interesting night in college. So let’s raise a glass of brew in celebration of this historic day.
And what better city to celebrate….pretty much anything…than our fabulous Las Vegas? Did you know, we have a ton of locally-owned and operated breweries here? Let’s keep the love here at home by celebrating National Beer Day, Las Vegas style. Here are a few places to consider.
