The Session is a monthly event for the beer blogging community which was begun by Stan Hieronymus at Appellation Beer. On the first Friday of each month, all participating bloggers write about a predetermined topic. Each month a different blog is chosen to host The Session, choose the topic, and post a roundup of all the responses received. For more info on The Session, check out the Brookston Beer Bulletin’s nice archive page.
A dear friend of mine was married on New Year's Day 2009.
In that spirit, I'll address the topic of Session #23, as proposed by blogger Beer and Firkins --beer-wise, what will I miss from 2008 and what will I excitedly await in 2009 --
Except that I will address it somewhat differently.
What did I miss in 2008?
Occasionally forgetting to appreciate and respect beer for the noble beverage that it is.
Occasionally forgetting to express gratitude for those who have enriched my life.
What do I look forward to in 2009?
Good, fresh, local beer.
Saying "Thank you" more often.
Sometimes, it's not only about the beer.
