Happy Anniversary!

I am not even going to pretend that I remember how this all came about. This is what I know to be true. I saw Joe from Blatz liquor tweeting about a beer club.  I schlepped the kids into the now deceased Blatz Liquor store (pour some out for our homie) to buy beer including the beer of the week. I followed Mitch on twitter and attended the very first #beerclub.  Anything else I remember probably isn’t true.

I have been present at each and every beer club since – whether the kids or I were sick, whether I was at home or not and I think once I didn’t even have the beer of the week but still participated. By (not my) popular demand, the beer club time was changed and since then it has been a challenge for me to be present, but I always try to at least stop in and say hi.

This is what else I know to be true.  I have had great conversations, learned a thing or two, and made life-long friends through #beerclub. I am so grateful for this group that gathers on twitter every Monday night and shares a beer.  I look forward to it every week and I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store for us.  I imagine some more great (and not so great) beer, more friends and more field trips!

I am hoping we have a great turn out of old friends (@vasser40 I am looking at you) and new friends to celebrate the one year anniversary of #beerclub! See you at 8pm this Monday night!

A special shout out thank you to Mitch! Without you, none of this would have happened and I so appreciate you!

    Ok ok… I’m in tomorrow! It’ll be tough for me, but I’ll at least stop in and say hi. I’d love to participate more often, but as Alex gets older, his bedtime gets later, and as a single dad, my time w him is precious. I also would love to do field trips, but I work all Saturdays but the first Saturday of the month (that is why I suggested the first one ever to be on the first Saturday if the month, so I could go). I share Einleys sentiments, do for old time sake, I’m in

  2. Thanks for sticking with the beerclub so long. Without you (and I mean everyone, but especially you Genevieve) I probably wouldn’t have stuck with this adventure as long as I have.

    And Joe, we can adjust the #beerclubfieldtrips to accommodate you. I picked the third Saturday at random, it can be adjusted if it works better for people.

    For the record, the beer club tee shirts are absolutely awesome.
