That's just the sort of thing we need now more than ever, isn't it. Anyway, I will just leave that 39 year old thought with you as we look at, in addition to the one video entry, the first 31 photo entries for this year's Yuletide Christmas Hanukah Hogmanay Kwanza Festivus beery photo contest. These are from Thomas Vincent of North Carolina, Christopher Grzan of New Jersey, Boak and Bailey of Cornwall, Keith Adams of California, The Beer Nut of Ireland... the only true beer nut in the world, Mark Michalski of Maryland, and Aaron Stein of Oregon... not in that order. I could rearrange them I suppose. But that would take effort.
That's quite good, isn't it. Get your entries in by emailing me at beerblog@gmail dot calm. Prizes. For free. Well, for a photo. That doesn't suck.
