An interest group sent me an email to elicit my help in letting readers know that it’s Alcohol Awareness Month.

Which reminds me: It’s time for another beer.

    I’m more of a Coors fan, personally. Could we unite over a mutual contempt for Budweiser?

  2. Michael Reynolds says:

    I like to think that every month is alcohol awareness month.

  3. Dantheman says:

    Everybody needs to believe in something. I believe I’ll have another beer.

    I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    Please! Do not mix fruit with grains, it can give you a bad headache later.

    Good to know this is the month. Due to my ignorance in the matter, I’ve been celebrating alcohol awareness month for every month since I’ve turned 21.

    Better safe than sorry, you know.

    It must be 8:00 AM somewhere.

    At least we can be happy it wasn’t quietly declared Confederate Ale Month.

    That Leinenkugel photo made me thirsty.

    If it’s an alcoholic beverage, color me very happy.

    Is the photo a coincidence or an endorsement of Leinenkugel for Senate in Wisconsin?

    I wasn’t aware there was a Leinenkugel running until you brought it to my attention but “Free Beer!” is a hell of a platform.

    If Sunset Wheat were free, they could still keep it. There a lot better wheat beers.

    I got something similar from a friend of mine who grew up in Minnesota and went to school at Wisconsin. For the rest of us, the Lienenkugel’s products are still fairly novel. For those who grew up with it, it’s got all the cachet of PBR.

    I actually like Sunset Wheat quite a bit, especially when it’s hot. Depending on my mood,though, I prefer several German and Belgian varieties to it, since SW is a bit orangey.
