A Barrel Full of Beer Memes, #1
Meme...no not the restaurant in Philadelphia..but, it would be a nice segue to remind you of the homebrewing event that they have coming up in July, now would it not? No, a meme...like a cultural touchpoint...that manifests itself in a thing, a period, an occurrence, a phenomenon. Something that replicates and spreads itself through the collective consciousness. (Or at least that's how I think of it...try dictionary.com, if you'd prefer.) With Better Beer permeating many heretofore never seen from nor heard from cracks of society, The Best (and Worst) of the Beer World is on display through the first Beer Meme that I'll highlight here (lowlight?) No doubt, if you follow state legislation around the country (yes, Pennsylvania...there are worse states for the making, buying, and selling of beer), you've probably heard about Alabama's struggles and, finally, recent triumph over close-minded officials who just don't "get it." (A quick link to Free the Hops will catch you up-to-date.) The "Gourmet Beer" law in Alabama is one case in point. I present to you the first in a series of Beer Memes that I'll put before you occasionally over time. First up: "yeah, What's Wrong with the Beer We Got? I mean the beer we got drank pretty good, don't it?" Courtesy of Representative Alvin Holmes (at 5:30 if you want to jump ahead):
