Session #56 Announced

It felt good to get back into the flow of The Session and get involved with this month’s topic last week. Hopefully, that will be the momentum I need to keep up with the monthly Beer Bloggers’ writing event.

October’s Session topic has been announced by The Tale of the Ale — “Thanks to the big boys.” In summary, we’re to thank the likes of SABMiller and ABInbev:

Anyway I want people to pick a large brewery or corporation that owns a lot of breweries. There are many to chose from. Give thanks to them for something they have done. Maybe they produce a beer you do actually like. Maybe they do great things for the cause of beer in general even if their beer is bland and tasteless but enjoyed by millions every day.

The topic sort of reminds me of a very short-lived and sarcastic series of posts written four years ago by a friend of mine for The Barley Blog entitle “Supporting the Goliaths.” You can read those here and here. Now, next month’s Session topic, I’m sure, is meant to be of a more serious nature, but it’ll be hard not to take a few punches at the big boys.
