Beer Drinkers’ Gallery

Saul doesn’t drink beer. I didn’t pick up the habit until I was in my thirties, and it was travel-related curiosity that did me in. I clearly remember the first beer I ever really enjoyed and the reason I ordered it. It was on a skiing holiday in Canada and I ordered it because I couldn’t resist the beautifully evocative name: Sleeman’s Honey Brown Lager. So it seems appropriate to do a post on beer, now that we are back in Canada for the first time since that skiing holiday. Here’s what I’ve been drinking while Saul has been sipping a steady succession of bottomless soda-fountain Diet Cokes.

    Yes, beer is definitely a travelling thing for me – I don’t seem to drink much of it at home. Andrew, I can see that we’ve disappointed you. Does it help that we visited Sam Adams’ grave on the Freedom Trail in Boston? We did not drink any Sam Adams there, although plenty of those Weird Tourist people do, judging by snapshots on the internet…

    Great to see you’re supporting the craft beer movement – and some early signs of beer snobbery! There are thousands of great beers in the US, ones to look out for are anything by Russian River, Evil Twin, Firestone Walker, Toppling Goliath …
    I am jealous – keep the photos coming, more beer fewer leaves

    My favourite US craft beer so far is Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro. Left Hand is in Colorado and this one is also a skiing discovery – tasted it when we were skiing in Telluride in Jan. Have seen it on this trip but have resisted ordering it because with beer, as with food, I try to stay as local as possible. Not sure if that’s also a sign of incipient beer snobbery!
