Session 135 Announcement: Sepia Tones

The Session, a.k.a. Beer Blogging Friday, is an opportunity once a month for beer bloggers from around the world to get together and write from their own unique perspective on a single topic. Each month, a different beer blogger hosts the Session, chooses a topic and creates a round-up listing all of the participants, along with a short pithy critique of each entry. (You can find more information on The Session on Brookston Beer Bulletin).

This morning I went looking for the theme for this month's Session, and discovered there was none, so I am stepping into the breach.

As the title of this post suggests, today I want you to put on your sepia tinted glasses and indulge in a little beer nostalgia, a bit of personal beer history you might say.

What kind of things would be suitable topics for today? Well, here's some suggestions:
  • Discontinued beers that you miss.
  • Breweries you once loved that are no longer around.
  • Beers that are simply not what they once were.
  • Your early steps in the world of beer drinking, whether craft or just in general.
There you have it, get melancholy, drag up memories of good times gone by, and join us in this month's Session (I'll be posting mine later today).




  2. I miss Sam Adams Honey Porter, and now Boulevard has discontinued Frequent Flier Session IPA.

    Budweiser is no longer what it once was in my opinion. It used to be my guilty pleasure

    Haven't lost a brewery yet to closure

    I started out drinking Budweiser and other mass market lagers. First trying something different when I helped a buddy move to Boston Ma and had my first Sam Adams Boston Lager and Bass Ale too was available on the East Coast. Then Shiner Bock came to Arkansas and shortly thereafter Boulevard Pale Ale and Wheat came into the area. Now I try to drink primarily from my local breweries in the Northwest Arkansas.

  3. Thanks for hosting!


Best Beer Ever!
