MR BEER® Beer of the Day- September 16

Aye, aye, aye

Olé Molé Stout is a selection today to follow the fiesta last night! Did you go out and issue forth your “Grito”? If not, don’t dispair, you can still raise your glass in commemoration. A little like coffee, yet with a little chocolate and a little pepper at the end, it will wake you up and get you going for the day. Every day is yet another opportunity to celebrate independence whatever the reason!

Just a little quick recipe while the pumpkin beer season is really in high gear!

Star Spangled Beer

In 1814 on this day, the Battle of 1812 is raging, and Francis Scott Key, being inspired by a lone American flag still flying at dawn after a British bombing campaign that lasted all night, pens a poem originally titled “The Defence of Ft. McHenry”. He was there to negotiate the release of a friend aboard a British ship that had been taken prisoner. They were not allowed to leave until after the bombardment but had a spectacular view from about 8 miles off shore. After a day of trying, the British gave up their attempts to destroy the fort, and Key relieved to see the flag still waving, whips out a pen and jots down a few lines. The poem was later set to a popular English (ironic) drinking tune and 117 years after it was penned it was finally adopted officially as the National Anthem. Rocket’s Red Glare is our beer for today, assertive as Key was himself, yet balanced with a slight glow when exposed to the light, and a bright hop bite.

“The Buckeye Bullet”

– Jesse Owens was born on this day in 1913, in Alabama. While attending The Ohio State University he would set three world-records and tied one more in less than an hour at the 1935 Big Ten track meet, a feat dubbed ‘the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport’, has yet to be bested. He competed in and won all 42 track and field events that year. The following year he won four gold medals in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany, annoying Hitler by disproving his notion of Aryan racial supremacy, and cementing his place in history. Always fleet of foot, in his post-amateur athletic days, he raced horses and cars for money to get by, and played briefly with the Harlem Globetrotters, but times were tough, but he persevered. Eventually globe-trotting as a goodwill ambassador, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Gerald Ford, a recognition long overdue by his home country. The perfect beer with which to honor such an inspiring man has to be Staggerback Stout! He certainly brought the world to its knees each time he competed, and through his life he exemplified what a truly great person he was.

A Day of Remembrance

All-American Gold is today’s featured recipe on our National Day of Service and Remembrance. As the years pass, the memories dim somewhat, but all of us will forever remember those who were lost. Please do something today to help your fellow man. It doesn’t need to be formal or even extraordinary. Just a way to keep paying forward the spirit that makes us all a people that others look to for guidance and compassion in times of strife, as was so clearly demonstrated in those days following the attacks by people the world over, if only that feeling of unity could be bottled…

It's the End of the World as We Know It

Today marks the day the world didn’t end, again. Hooray! In 2008 the CERN Large Hadron Collider was powered up for the first time in Geneva, Switzerland. Many feared that the particle collisions might manifest a doomsday event where mini black holes were produced and grow to the point of no return sucking in the Earth and everything near it. As this didn’t happen, we have continued on with our happy stumble through time and space as before, and we eventually were able to prove the Higgs particle does exist in 2013. When faced with these momentous events peering into the vast unknown always reminds you how life’s pleasures make it worth living. A Technicolor sunset, such that occurs quite frequently this time of year, viewed from under a big tree with all of its branches changing color spread out above you, sipping a Hop Head Red is a gentle reminder of your place in the universe, and that life is indeed wonderful today!

Beauty and the Yeast

Louis Pasteur visited the Whitbread Brewery in East London on this day in 1871, stunned by the sheer size of the brewery, he wrote, ‘It is impossible to get any idea of its immensity”. The largest room once held the equivalent of 3,800 barrels of beer (That’s a lot of beer!) with a 65 foot long uninterrupted view across the room. Wow.

Live Long and Prosper

For all the Trekkies among us, young and old, still closeted, or out and proudly displaying their Vulcan Ears at Comic-Con, today is the 48th anniversary of the debut of the original Star Trek series. For all you Spock, Kirk and Bones lovers out there, and for those of us who’ve grudgingly had to live with them at some point in our lives, take a moment today to marvel at the little show that has gone to Deep Space, on a Voyage and influenced the Next Generation, has starred in a continuingly successful movie franchise and a cartoon, yet never reached its final frontier. Along the way it given countless fans and even us grudging trek-adjacent viewers so much as far as pop culture is concerned. Star Trek has woven itself into our very psyche, vocabulary (sometimes in Klingon), and consciousness. Heavy McWee is our recipe for today, in honor of Scotty who was always “giving her I’ve got, Captain” , and the rest of the Enterprise crew for showing us that though the universe is infinite, and we’re all connected on some level, usually the ‘bridge’, or maybe on Facebook. Oh myyy.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

National Beer Lovers Day, how wonderful! Have you noticed that these celebratory days are scattered throughout the year, giving us another reason to raise a glass to the barley, hops, water and yeast that is blended into the Nectar of the Gods in new and wondrous ways. Brewers truly are the mothers and fathers of invention. Can’t maintain the proper temperature? I have a solution for that. Need to brew something up for a special occasion and don’t have exactly the ingredients a recipe calls for? I can fix that, and as a result the tweak was even better than the original. And all for the love of beer! So hoist a pint of Albert’s Atomic Altbier today to honor the inventor in you, and brew!
