Beer is the Best. Ever.

Beer is most likely the best thing humanity has ever accomplished (I’m 99 percent positive on this). Yes, fire and the wheel helped out humankind immensely but do you reach for a nice pint of fire or wheel after a long day? No.

 

 

The appeal of beer can’t be denied. Remember that one time the government tried to make it illegal? Didn’t work out too well, which is why today Americans get to rejoice and celebrate the repeal of prohibition day (AKA Beer Day).  And that’s why on National Beer Day here’s a list of the ultimate (personally biased) reasons why beer rocks the sock’s off of civilization.

 

1.  You can drink it on a daily and moderate basis to live a longer life.

 

2. You can bathe in it for a spa –like skin treatment.

 

3. The variety is astounding – any kind of beer you want probably exists in some part of the world (or will soon). There’s quite possibly a special beer for everyone out there.

 

 

4. It is the perfect tangible example of the connectivity between agriculture, production and consumption. Sometimes beer recipes change because there is a hop shortage or a new beer is created due to a brewery mishap. These things aren’t hidden away, rather they are placed out there to further involve the consumer in the beautiful process that is beer making.

 

5. A beer a day keeps the doctor away.

 

6. It saved the world. Or at least that’s what I heard.

 

7. It makes food taste better. Whether it’s the perfect beer/food pairing or the beer is being used to marinate meat or enrich a soup – beer heightens the experience of eating.

 

8. Beer helped put Grand Rapids on the map. From a mid-sized city, Grand Rapids morphed into a hub of beer activity and is now a top tourist destination in the country and will be hosting the homebrewers’ national convention this summer.

 

9. Because grabbing a pint with a buddy after work sounds way better than getting a mug of hot cocoa or a goblet of wine. It just does.

 

Do it today. For National Beer Day. Because it's the best.
