I have something else on my mind right now, but I am struggling to find the words to properly explain how I feel about things in the beer world of late.
Tomorrow, Mrs Velkyal and I head down south for our annual holiday on the Atlantic coast of Florida, and my head is ready for a break.
I may post, I may not, I really haven't decided yet. Will I be going on a journey to find well regarded craft beer curios while I am away? I honestly don't know, more likely I will buy a case of Sam Adams Light and just switch off.
The best thing about beer isn't writing about it, tweeting about what I am drinking or even organising events, but rather just sitting with a beer and letting it be. The closest I can get to how I feel right now is this article from Chicago.
I particularly like this quote:
"Beer doesn’t have to be fussy, elitist and overcomplicated. That’s what wine is for. Beer should be for the rest of us: affordable, easy to enjoy, thirst slaking and confidence restoring".
I need a beer.
