Apparently, it's Sitcom Day

Beer #227 Jubilate / Brouwerij Pinkus MüllerMünster, Germany

Beer number 227 today!  Remember that 80's sitcom 227, starring Jackée?

Remember when?

Yeah, I don't either.   However, beer/brewery #227 is the Jubilate, a dark lager from Brouwerij Pinkus Müller.  I'm not exactly sure where we picked this up, but it's a safe bet to guess either Wegman's or Whole Foods.  Although not pictured (for some odd reason), it poured a dark amber color, with aromas of sweet malts and stone fruit.  There's a lot of malt up front, with pleny of honey sweetness, caramel, and a clean finish.  Quite nice, in fact, and rather drinkable at 5.5% ABV.  Marci's take on this beer can be found here.

Oddly not pictured: my glass with the beer in it
Pinkus Müller originally started out as a bakery, but the founder converted the business into a brewery in 1866.  Smart move.  This beer was originally brewed as a special beef for their anniversary - 'jubilate' translates to 'rejoice' in Latin. For those who are more focused on this sort of thing, the beer is also certified as organic. 

Thing to Think About Today:
If we're talking 80's sitcoms, I think we need to give some credit to The Cosby Show.  Is there anyone in America who was alive when this show was on who didn't watch every week?  Perfect family entertainment, although it did touch on more serious social issues as well.  Bill Cosby in his comic prime.  Sooo many good clips to choose from, let's go ahead and use a family musical number:
