The Brew-Top 25 Beers of 2011

Since this is Superbowl week, it only seemed appropriate to dedicate this week’s post to the brew.  Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently compiled a list of the top 25 craft brews of 2011.  The number one, Don de Dieu, is from Unibroue, the makers of one of my personal favorites, La Fin du Monde.  I am going to have to check that one out for sure!  I have had more than a handful of them, but would love to hear from you about your favorites.

When I have a beer by itself, I like wheat, white, and dubbels.  With a hearty soup?  Porter or Amber.  Hot day?  Mexican or Pale Ale.  With a football game?  Depends on the menu.  What are you planning on drinking on Sunday?  And with what munchies are you pairing? And, in honor of my father,….Go Giants!

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.

  1. No a huge beer drinker, but I’ll check these out if I can find them. My current go to is Sam Smith’s Organic Raspberry. But had to add a comment or my husband would not be happy. Go Giants!!
