A Post With Many Things

Beer #179 Premium Lager / Sapporo Breweries Ltd., Tokyo, Japan

I think there are too many things happening to comment on today.  First, it's D-Day.

Daniel Simpson Day. No grade point average... all courses incomplete.

No, not that one.  The one to commemorate the Allied invasion at Normandy.  So thank you very much, veterans.  Also, the great American writer Ray Bradbury died today.  Author of books such as Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury was a master story-teller.  If you haven't read his work, you're missing out.  Apparently, it's also National Running Day, which I celebrated by trying a new route this morning, getting lost, and adding 2 extra miles I wasn't planning on running.  Like I said, busy day.

Tonight's beer on this busy day is the Premium Lager from Sapporo.  Very appropriate, as it was sushi night at our house.  No, not Bluefin (greatest sushi restaurant ever), but a fair substitute none the less.  This beer is a crystal clear gold in the glass, with a sweet aroma.  Very basic flavors of grain and sweetness, which seems to come from being brewed with rice.  I wouldn't drink this on a regular basis, but on sushi night it's fine.

Shiny! And probably from Canada.

For those who are curious, Sapporo was founded in 1876, many things happened over time, and then in 2006 they purchased Canadian brewer Sleeman.  Which means my Japanese beer was most likely brewed in Ontario.  Hey, what can you do.

Thing to Think About Today:
In honor of D-Day (yeah, the first one) let's see Mr. Danial Simpson Day, as Captain of the Deathmobile, and the rest of the Deltas in action at the Homecoming Parade.  Yes friends, it's time for Animal House.

"May I have ten thousand marbles, please?"
