Since last week was International Beer Day (Aug. 5), I decided to celebrate by drinking Anchor Steam Beer (one of my favorites). On this day, beer enthusiasts are encouraged to appreciate beer and try something new. So this year, I tried Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom Cream Ale and it was not bad. I think I liked it because it was fruity and light. Unfortunately, I expected more cream. But it was great to try something new.
For those of you who don’t know, International Beer Day started in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. According to the official website, you can celebrate by drinking with friends, enjoying new beers from other cultures, buying beers for your friends, and thanking a brewer and bartender for devoting their lives to beer.
If you didn’t celebrate it this year, make sure you put it on your calendar for next year!!
